If you need to get a job done, get it done right the first time. And if you can’t do the job yourself, then make sure you hire the right people for the job so it gets done correctly. There’s not much worse than thinking you have a repair job finished only to find out that the person you hired didn’t know how to do the job like it needed to be done. One way to be sure that you’re hiring the right person? Check out their credentials.

Hiring the Right Chimney SweepWhy Professional Certifications Are Important Image - Mansfield OH - Chim Cheroo Chimney Service

When it comes to hiring a chimney sweep, it’s the same idea. You want to hire the very best in the business to do the job right. So what do you need to do? Check their credentials. When it comes to chimney sweeps, the top certification in the industry is certification from the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). When you hire a CSIA certified chimney sweep, you know that they are trained in all of the most up-to-date information, technologies, and techniques so that your chimney will be in top-notch condition. You might be wondering what CSIA certification really means, though.

In order to earn CSIA certification, chimney professionals first go through an intensive study program using a variety of materials and different publications which thoroughly cover all aspects of chimney cleaning, inspections, and repair work. Because CSIA understands the importance of review, they offer several opportunities to review all the information, and if anyone wants more educational opportunities, there’s a six-day training session that CSIA members are welcome to attend as well. After the training is complete, in order to finish the training, all attendees are required to take a 90 minute exam which will show a depth of understanding of the chimney sweep industry, current practices, and industry standards.
