Would you go and have a thorough check-up of your body with a doctor that hasn’t finished medical school? Would you trust the legal advice of a lawyer who hasn’t passed the bar exam? Of course, you wouldn’t. It is equally important for the safety and well-being of you, your family and your home, to hire a certified sweep to clean and inspect your chimney.
Knowing More About the CSIA
There’s an organization specially designed to produce educated, technically skilled sweeps and that is the Chimney Safety Institute of America. They conduct trainings and seminars for aspiring chimney sweeps and have set the standard of professionalism.
The truth is, everyone can put on a hat and call himself a chimney sweep. But when you find out that the individual is licensed by the CSIA, it should give you peace of mind. Since 1979, I made sure that my technicians have completed all the necessary examinations, seminars and trainings to become certified.
Why Hire Someone Certified?
Hiring a certified chimney sweep is necessary since it gives you the assurance that your chimney is in good hands. Here are three reasons why:
- Efficiency – they are able to show you the things that a homeowner should be aware of concerning the chimney and provide quality services.
- Reliability—you are confident of the equipment and strategies they use to address all your chimney problems.
- Trustworthiness – you know that whatever they are doing is what’s best for your chimney.
