A clean chimney or furnace can make all the difference in the world for a family and the safety of their home. According to the Customer Product Safety Commission (CSPC), between 2012 and 2014, there was an average of 357,400 residential structure fires per year in the U.S. Fireplaces, chimneys, or other related equipment caused 22,300 of the 357,400 total fires.
Therefore, it is especially important to make sure that the people you hire are knowledgeable and will do the job right. That knowledge starts with CSIA certification and it is important that you choose a business that has it.
What is CSIA Certification?
The Chimney Safety Institute of America, abbreviated CSIA, educates chimney technicians and homeowners about issues such as chimney safety and proper chimney maintenance. They are devoted to spreading knowledge on the importance of these issues to reduce the risk of fire for homeowners.
They excel in making sure that chimney-sweeping companies have the know-how to meet your needs in the best possible way. Employees and employers alike must undergo various training and testing to gain their certification and bring industry-leading education and practices to each client.
The intensive training that the CSIA provides for companies seeking certification includes these imperative factors:
• Health & safety procedures
• Proper inspection and maintenance of any chimney system
• Accurate operation of all appropriate equipment
• Knowledge of all codes, clearances, and practices of the trade
A strict code of ethics is also included in this course. The code of ethics not only assures the quality of certified companies works but honest interaction with each customer as well.
