We understand that finding qualified technicians to service your home can be challenging. By looking for chimney professionals certified with the National Chimney Sweep Guild, you’ll have peace of mind that the job will be done right. 

What is the National Chimney Sweep Guild, and Why Should You Look For Their Certification?

 The National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG) is a non-profit trade association for chimney sweeps and chimney and venting manufacturers in the United States and Canada. Their mission is to create a community of professionals that promotes safety, education, business development, and advocacy for the chimney and venting industry. 

When you choose a NCSG-certified chimney professional, you’ll receive expert care for your chimney by highly trained technicians who have earned their certification standards.

Benefits of Hiring a NCSG Certified Chimney Professional

Schedule with Confidence

Any company can offer chimney inspections and cleanings, but only some have what it takes to be certified by the National Chimney Sweep Guild. When you schedule your chimney sweep with a NCSG-certified professional, you’ll have the peace of mind that a trustworthy technician is sweeping your chimney.

Protect Your Family and Keep Your Home Safe 

A fire department is dispatched to a working structure fire every structure every 24 seconds in the United States. Heating equipment is the leading cause of house fires, affecting an estimated 48,000 homes annually. These house fires also cause roughly 500 civilian deaths, around 1,300+ civilian injuries, and nearly $1.1 billion in direct property damage yearly!

The kicker? These home fires are largely preventable! The leading factor in home fires involving heating equipment is simply the failure to maintain and clean the equipment properly. Hiring a NCSG-certified professional for annual inspections and service will help prevent house fires and keep your family safe.

Avoid Expensive Chimney Issues

Regularly maintaining your chimney will help avoid expensive repairs in the future. We’re not saying your chimney will never need repair, but regular inspections and cleanings will help prolong the life of your chimney system by ensuring harmful deposits of creosote and animal matter aren’t collecting within your chimney.
