Hey fellas, would there be a possibility of causing some sort of damage via corrosion if I were to sweep the chimney top-down, but then leave the sweepings in the stove/bypass chamber overnight? A friend can come over tonight and run the brush through for me, but I've got a few things on the go so won't be able to shop vac it all up until tomorrow morning? Any issues you think, like with it sitting on the bypass gasket, or anything else?

Okay, here's part 2 question. My buddy was just over and swept. A bit of soot seems to have leaked out the seam where the telescopic pipe connects to my stove top adapter piece (in the pic, at the top seem). It's double-walled pipe. I realize that soot is very fine, and can penetrate things pretty easy, but is this normal or something to be concerned about?

(Stupid?) question. I replaced my stove pipe to all double wall DVL this summer. Given that it's double wall - will there be any off gassing (like a newly painted stove)?
I'm asking so that, if I need to, I can make sure to start a fire while I can still open the windows comfortably... (though it is still near 75 this week, with 60+ nights, so I'll have to wait a month or so...)

I had a little smell when I did mine, and actually will get a smell here and there if I burn with the T-stat fully opened and forget to close the pipe damper, its one of those things that the pipe stays pretty cool, but occasionally when burnt hot you'll get that burn metal / latex smell.
