It is for ashes from a wood burning stove and they could be very fine.
Have thought of keeping the vac outside and using a hose through the window

On our open fire (burning wood only) I use the good ole Earlex (the
one with power take off) no real problem with pass through but then it
does have a decent paper filter. The one without power take off
doesn't come with a good filter but I think you can get one.

We had maid service at Centerparcs. They vacuumed the ashes up, and the air

They were very calm about it and just unplugged it and took it outside.
Apparently this happens all the time.
