When you invest in a service for your household (whatever that may be), you want a skilled professional on the job who won’t cut corners or skimp on care. Hiring the best of the best guarantees the most efficiency for your appliances, and it keeps your loved ones safer, too. All in all, doing a bit of research and spending a little time, money, and effort hiring someone you can trust for the long haul is always going to be worth it!
Now, when it comes to your chimney, there are a couple of big qualities to look out for in a company. The number of years they’ve been in business says a lot, as do customer reviews and testimonials, but there’s one thing we feel really stands out – a CSIA certification. Learn more about this below!
What Is The CSIA?
The CSIA, or Chimney Safety Institute of America, is a non-profit that makes training sweeps and educating homeowners their number one priority. Equipping folks throughout the country with fireplace information and fire safety tips is truly their passion, and they maintain high ethics and standards, too, so you know you’re getting honest insight and expert knowledge no matter what.
The CSIA is nationally recognized as a leader in its industry, and it truly sets the standard when it comes to providing sweeps with the knowledge they need to better serve their customer base. Since its start back in 1983, it has always provided top-notch results, and anyone offering chimney care knows that a CSIA certification is what sets you apart from the rest!
So, is it an easy process for sweeps to get this credential? Not exactly. The CSIA holds high standards for sweeps they certify, so a lot of training, studying, and dedication is expected! After going through multiple texts, attending reviews, and purchasing the necessary learning materials, the technicians must take an extensive examination that tests their chimney and fireplace knowledge. A passing grade results in a certification, but not before signing a strict Code of Ethics!
But that’s not all. Every three years, the sweep must recertify to ensure they are staying up-to-date on any new techniques, tools, and technologies. One thing’s for certain: if you have a CSIA-certified expert on the job, they’ll know their stuff!
