When hiring a chimney sweep contractor for your home choosing one which is knowledgeable and trustworthy is important. But how can you tell if the candidate you are considering is the professional expert you need? One benchmark homeowners nationwide have used to measure the proficiency of potential sweeps is checking their CSIA certification credentials. The CSIA Chimney Sweep® credential is not only recognized by local and state governments across all 50 states but also considered the gold standard approach for proving a sweep’s knowledge and expertise.
During the CSIA certification process, each student must demonstrate a high level of knowledge in a number of areas including:
When interviewing potential contractors inquire about their CSIA certification status. You may also want to ask if they participate in regular educational opportunities. These both can be indicators on their commitment to continual growth in the field of chimney sweeping.
Lindemann Chimney Service believes in the importance of educational opportunities for all of their employees. Each of their new sweeps go through the CSIA certification process while also participating in a CSIA Chimney Physics course. Our seasoned technicians are encouraged to continue to grow their knowledge with supplemental courses related to the industry. Lindemann’s dedication to education is just one example of our commitment to offer the best service to the North Shore community.
