When you think of a chimney sweep, a mental picture of a soot-covered Dick Vandyke from Mary Poppins might come to mind. If you don’t know much more about chimney sweeps beyond that, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. Many homeowners don’t realize that chimney sweeps are qualified to do a lot more than just clean out soot and dangerous deposits of creosote.
Chimney sweeps, or chimney technicians, who have been certified by the National Fireplace Institute (NFI) are trained to perform a wide range of services. The NFI’s extensive certification program includes training on masonry building and repairs; the mechanics of prefabricated gas and wood burning fireplaces, inserts and stoves; proper maintenance of these 3 heating appliances; chimney system maintenance and best cleaning practices; and federal and local guidelines and codes that relate to these appliances including the EPA’s clean air standards and local building codes.
Many chimney professionals, like us, stay up-to-date on the latest fireplace models and best practices so that we are qualified to service all masonry fireplaces along with every make and model of prefabricated gas and wood burning fireplaces, fireplace inserts and stoves.
