Certification: Taking the Higher Road
It has been said that there are two things that demonstrate what a person’s priorities are: how they spend their time and where they spend their money. The same can be true of organizations and companies including those you’re considering as home services contractors.
Fresh Sweeps, like the company that was started by the same people over 10 years ago to do carpet cleaning, is built on important principles. At the center is protecting people and the places they call home. And that means working to safeguard the health, safety and security of occupants, owners, pets and guests. This is true for chimney sweeping, air duct cleaning or dryer vent cleaning.
So where do the company, the local Fresh Sweeps business owners and technicians invest their time and money? Are their actions every level – and among all team members –consistent with a commitment to people and the places that matter to them? In fact, one tangible confirmation of this intense desire to serve are Fresh Sweeps’ certification requirements.

Why Logos, Certifications, and Credentials Count
Factor #1: The Services Provided by Fresh Sweeps Are Technical in Nature
Chimney sweeping, air duct cleaning and dryer vent cleaning are not simply a matter of physical effort or brute force. In fact, pushing, scrubbing or scraping in the wrong place or with little finesse can actually damage the fireplace, heating appliance, chimney, HVAC system or dryer vent system.
In many cases, the home is either older, has been actively lived in by many people or was constructed with some unique methods and materials. That means that one of Fresh Sweeps first steps is this >
OBSERVE CAREFULLY to spot physical locations with the potential to compromise the comfort, safety and security of the home’s occupants. And the structure itself.
Factor #2: Chimney Sweeping, Air Duct Cleaning and Dryer Vent Cleaning Take Judgment
Once the situation has been made clear through both observation and point-by-point inspection, it is important that proper cleaning and repair techniques are used. Unlike DIY methods that are largely ineffective or often unsafe, the Fresh Sweeps technician draws upon a proven menu of reliable methods.
This is another point at which training shows its value. That’s because only some of the possible ways to improve health, safety and security are worthy of consideration in any home situation. Now is when the Fresh Sweeps team takes the next step.
RECOMMEND THOUGHTFULLY to determine cleaning priorities, address them with reasonable prices and then work with the home owner or property manager to make a plan.
Factor #3: The Consequences of Both Poor or Excellent Work Show Up
Smoke or fumes that appear in a room. Soot on surfaces and furniture. Poor combustion in a fireplace or heating appliance. A burning smell whenever the clothes dryer is used. Or, in the case of animal removal, wildlife continues to return and inhabit a chimney system.
These symptoms of poorly done service work may not appear immediately. Fresh Sweeps technicians adhere to high standards no matter how difficult the home is to access, clean or repair. No longer is each home a “one-off” based upon the individual technician’s motivation that day. The final result is this >
