Fireplace and chimney maintenance services are all about protecting the homes of Greater Knoxville area residents from the threat of house fires and other damage. So, why trust the safety of your family and home to a chimney sweep without a proper certification?

Chimney Sweep Certification

At TN Fireplace & Chimney, we take our duty to protect Knoxville homeowners very seriously. That’s why we only employ chimney sweeps that have been certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA).two techs working on chimney

The CSIA is a non-profit, educational organization governed by industry professionals with deep professional knowledge in the latest and safest fireplace and chimney maintenance techniques. Founded in 1983, the organization’s certification process is meant to give homeowners confidence in the knowledge and experience of chimney sweeps before hiring them.

Before a chimney sweep is certified by the CSIA, they must go through a rigorous training regimen and pass a grueling series of exams to prove they have the knowledge to safely repair and maintain chimney. The training is meant to ensure sweeps have the technical expertise to combat the threats of chimney fires, carbon monoxide poisoning, and other threats to safety.

Continuing Education

Getting a certification doesn’t end with passing the exams. The industry continues to develop new techniques and safety technology, so in order to keep the certification, the CSIA requires chimney sweeps to recertify every three years to make sure their skills are up to date.

There is also a strict code of ethics that chimney sweeps must abide by. The CSIA wants to protect homeowners from scams and requires accredited sweeps to abide by the highest standards of professional honesty and ethics. At TN Fireplace & Chimney, your trusted source for Knoxville chimney services, we want all of our clients to be able to have confidence in the honesty and skills of the technician serving their home. We hire only CSIA certified chimney sweeps and are dedicated to meeting the highest professional and ethical standards.
