Stinky Fireplace, HELP!

I hope someone can help. We just bought a house (and spent all our money on that!) I have been cleaning and painting and it is starting to shape up. Except the fireplace. It stinks. It gets really bad when it is humid out. DH says he doesn't mind it, but I can't be in the living room.

I took the burned remains of the previous owners fire out. We have removed the carpet in the house. The living room has been painted. We had a chimney sweep come out and he said the chimney looked ok.

I will still sweep (shop vac) the fireplace out and clean some paneling behind the fireplace.

What else can I do? We don't have the money for a large remodel project. Any suggestions? I am thinking about calling another chimney company.
