Even with covers and other dust protection for your home furnishings, the likelihood of damage from muck and soot is still likely and it's advisable to remove your carpets and furniture before any fireplace restoration work and chimney cleaning commences. If you are installing a fireplace as part of a larger home restoration project then it should be one of the initial things to be done after you've taken the room back to bare walls and floors. By opening a fireplace first you will prevent any soot from the chimney causing staining damage to other phases of your renovation project, such as fresh plaster or wallpapered walls.
