Going out to eat, paying a visit to the doctor, hiring a plumber, applying for a loan, getting groceries, and tons of similar activities all require help from staff members that are trained in their particular field. No matter what type of service you are investing in, we’re sure you want the people assisting you to know their stuff! After all, one minor mishap could wind up costing you a lot of extra time and money down the line, and in some situations, could put your health and safety at serious risk.
Well, the same applies for technicians in the chimney sweep world. Faulty installation jobs, inadequate repair work, and rushed sweepings could lead to big issues that decrease efficiency and put your home in danger. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for companies to claim they are certified and experienced, without getting too specific on the details. In some cases, these sweeps don’t have the extensive knowledge and training to get the job done right, and they could leave you worse off than you were before!
Why The CSIA Sets The Standard
When you talk to experts in the chimney and fireplace industry, we can almost guarantee you that they will all say the same thing – only trust a CSIA certified technician! The Chimney Safety Institute of America is a highly esteemed organization that has set the standard for chimney care throughout the United States ever since its beginning back in 1983.
The goal of the CSIA is to keep homes throughout the country safer. Many homeowners are unaware of how dangerous it can be to use a dirty or damaged chimney and don’t realize that they should be investing in professional inspections at least once a year. Chimney fires, venting issues, cracks, holes, clogs, and more can all trigger big issues like house fires, chimney collapses, or exposure to harmful toxins (like carbon monoxide). By spreading this knowledge, this nonprofit organization saves countless lives every single year!
Importance Of Continuing Education
One great thing about working with the CSIA is its commitment to continued education. In order for sweeps to maintain their credentials, they must renew them every few years by either engaging in more courses or by reviewing and taking an exam. This ensures they stay up-to-date on all of the latest technologies and techniques in the field, and that they are consistently refreshed on how to properly handle various scenarios in the fireplace world.
In an industry that is ever-evolving, staying educated and on top of it all is extremely important! We want to make certain we are fully prepared and ready to serve our client base, no matter the issue at hand, and by obtaining and maintaining our CSIA certifications, we feel good knowing our team is able to take on anything!
