How to Hire a Chimney Sweep

When it comes to choosing a chimney sweep, a certification is just the beginning. At Midtown Chimney Sweeps, we believe there are other important factors to consider for your peace of mind. Take a moment to consider the following:

Experience: Find out the number and types of chimney sweeping jobs a company has successfully completed.

Reputation: Ask for a list of references or testimonials. At Midtown, you can check out our customer reviews on our public Testimonials page. Additionally, you can see how many customers have reviewed our business on location-specific Google My Business pages.

Insurance Coverage: Ensure that the chimney sweep firm carries personal liability, worker’s compensation, and property damage coverage. Your protection matters to us.

Subcontractors: Clarify whether the chimney sweep company will be using subcontractors for your project. We want to make sure everyone involved is properly accounted for.

Certified Professionals: Inquire whether the chimney sweep business employs certified professionals, like our Certified Chimney Professionals (CCP).

By considering these factors, you can make an informed decision and choose the right chimney sweep for your project and home. Your safety is our top priority.

NFI Certification

Some, but not all of our technicians have achieved an additional certification called the NFI Woodburning Certification. Technicians that perform fireplace installation and relining work are required to achieve an additional level of certification to ensure a baseline of knowledge to perform that type of work. The National Fireplace Institute (NFI) Woodburning Certification signifies that a technician has passed a rigorous exam covering a wide variety of topics that pertain to the proper planning and installation of wood-burning hearth appliances, like wood stoves, wood burning inserts, etc.  Based on a detailed industry survey, known as a Job Analysis, an extensive list of vital knowledge statements and tasks was developed by the Hearth Patio and Barbecue Association’s educational group.  This list is updated on a regular basis to ensure the knowledge and task list keeps up with ever changing products.  The current certification exam is based on the 6th Edition Woodburning Reference manual.

Topics covered in the 6th Edition Woodburning Reference manual include:

• Heat transfer.
• Factors affecting efficiency.
• Codes and standards.
• Venting systems.
• Installation guidelines and troubleshooting.
• Factory-built fireplaces.
• Inserts.
• Wood stoves.
• House pressure tests.
• Tools and instruments.
• Construction fundamentals.
• Safety guidelines.

We look forward to serving you. Please feel free to ask any of our staff if your technician coming to your home will have not only the CCP Certification, but this optional additional certification of NFI Woodburning Certification!
