The Value of CSIA Certification

When you are looking to hire a professional chimney sweep to take care of your annual maintenance tasks, you may be tempted by ads that promise a low price. That however, could cause you to pay more money down the line. Unfortunately, there are scam artists who claim they can sweep and inspect your chimney, but they don’t do much more than give you an estimate for unnecessary repair work. An unprofessional chimney sweeping and inspection not only puts your home at a possible risk for chimney fires and carbon monoxide leaks, but it could also cost you even more money on professional repairs to take care of any problems. This is why hiring a chimney sweep who has been certified by the Chimney Sweep Institute of America (CSIA) is such a smart value.

Ace Chimney Sweeps is proud to have a staff of CSIA-certified chimney sweeps who you can trust to properly take care of your chimney and to treat you honestly and fairly on the job. We would like to tell you what to expect from our professional chimney maintenance services.The Value of CSIA Certification Image - Elkton MD - Ace Chimney

CHIMNEY SWEEPING

One of the reasons why the CSIA and other non-profit fire safety organizations recommend that homeowners have their chimneys professionally swept every year is to have the creosote removed from the inner chimney walls. Creosote is a residue that forms naturally during the combustion process of burning wood. Over the winter it can build up into large deposits. Creosote is highly flammable and is known to be a leading cause of chimney fires. You can trust the CSIA-certified technicians from Ace Chimney Sweeps to properly sweep your chimney and remove all of the creosote from your home.

CHIMNEY INSPECTION

When Ace Chimney Sweeps inspects your chimney, you can expect our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps to be thorough. We will make sure no leaves, animal nesting materials, fallen bricks, or other debris have blocked the flue. Components like the damper and the liner will also be checked to make sure they are working properly. We will also look for damaged bricks and mortar joints on the outer chimney. If we do find any problems, we will provide you with a written description and pictures of the damage, and you can trust the estimate we will give you of the repairs needed to correct the problems. As CSIA-certified chimney sweeps, we pledge to conduct business honestly and fairly.

You can count on a CSIA-certified chimney sweep to properly sweep and inspect your chimney. Contact us at Ace Chimney Sweeps today to schedule an appointment for your annual professional chimney maintenance services.
