Chimney Sweeping is an Unregulated Industry
Did you know that chimney sweeping is an unregulated industry? That’s why choosing a CSIA-certified chimney sweep is essential for your safety and peace of mind. The non-profit Chimney Safety Institute of America is an industry leader in chimney education and is one of the few organizations in the country that trains and certifies chimney professionals. Don’t let just anyone mess around cleaning your chimney, after all is it where your home expels toxic gasses. Look for the CSIA-certification and KNOW you are keeping your family safe.
Danger Lurks Above Your Cozy Fireplace
Chimneys collect soot and creosote, and these can catch fire under the right conditions. A chimney fire, at its most benign, may register as a popping sound, thicker than average smoke, or smoke issuing from cracks in the brick and mortar. The scary fact is, you may not even know you’ve had one. At their worst, chimney fires are responsible for property loss, injury and death. But fires are not the only threat. Poor ventilation and soot buildup prevent gasses and smoke from escaping, allowing carbon monoxide to sneak into your living room. Avoid all these hazards by scheduling regular inspections and maintenance with certified experts.
Choose an Expert
What makes someone an expert? Mechanics aren’t asked to perform surgeries, and surgeons generally aren’t asked for advice on engine repair. To be an expert in your field, specific expertise and training matter. And if you understand the potential risks and hazards of a dirty or damaged chimney, you won’t trust anything less than an expert in the field. Inspecting, cleaning, repairing, removing animal nests—all of these things are best done by trained professionals, especially considering the risks.
