Certified Chimney Sweeps: They Are Truly Important

Many of us grew up in places where chimneys weren’t common or were irregularly used. As a result, the idea of having a certified chimney sweeper enter your home to conduct sweeping is a new thought.

You might be wondering if you can just sweep your chimney yourself. Isn’t just a matter of some coarse-haired brushes being briskly scrubbed inside the chimney? That, however, is far from the truth. Chimney care is a complex matter that needs the attention of a professional.

Well, do you even need a certified chimney sweeping? You absolutely do. Not only do sweepings keep chimneys operating efficiently, they also help protect you from the health and safety risks that accompany a dirty or malfunctioning chimney.

Even if there are no significant problems, the insurability and financial value of the home are tied to the condition of the fireplace or heating appliance. As if the health and comfort of occupants and their pets wasn’t enough, there are big dollars on the line when it’s time for an appraisal or sale.

Thankfully, there’s a chimney sweeper who can take care of your home – Fresh Sweeps.

From Firebox to Cap – a Whole-System Approach

We believe that the safety, security, and comfort of a home is paramount and that effective chimney care is key to having those things. That’s why all of our technicians have earned their Chimney Sweeping Certification from the national accreditation group, Certified Chimney Professionals (CCP).

What does it take for this professional, Fresh Sweeps CCP Certified chimney sweep, to step into your home with confidence and authority? And why is being from Fresh Sweeps AND being Certified such a powerful combination?

Here are five reasons:

Reason #1: Challenging Certification Process
This is not a 20-minute, online course kind of certification. CCP certification requires many, many hours of study and a challenging test to prove your knowledge. On top of this, Fresh Sweeps also has an additional training course to ensure our technicians provide the best possible customer service.

Reason #2: A Disciplined, Ordered Approach
While each Fresh Sweeps visit to a new home requires a clear-headed assessment of each individual chimney system, the disciplined approach taught by CCP and Fresh Sweeps means you can count on greater consistency and higher standards.

Reason #3: The Right Equipment, the Best Methods
CCP standards require professional-grade equipment and cleaning processes that carefully control the dirt, dust, and grime that’s being released from the chimney.

Reason #4: A Culture of Quality
Being a Fresh Sweeps field team member means having a CCP certification. This company culture of quality service doesn’t tolerate those who try to take shortcuts or do anything but their best.

Reason #5: National Standards, Local Pride
With Fresh Sweeps owners based in the communities they serve, there’s no room – or reason – to hide when top-notch results are how you do business every day. Backing up this local commitment to quality is our brand-wide focus on providing the best possible service to every customer. You can count on us.
