Does Magic Sweep Serve All of Virginia?

Chimneys are an important part of every household that has a fireplace. In Chesapeake, Virginia, wood heat has a long history that reaches back to the colonial period. If you’re a homeowner in the area, and you have an older home, you probably have a traditional open fireplace that needs routine attention in order to work safely and efficiently. If your house is equipped with a new gas appliance, it still needs to be inspected annually in order to prevent issues and hazards. While you’re living your life—enjoying your summers, preparing for winter and holidays, spring cleaning, and more—the last thing you want to worry about is the safety and function of your chimney system. Find a professional that is licensed, insured, and certified to clean, repair, and inspect chimneys in the area.

Why Choosing a CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep Makes Such a Difference in Service

When you hire a chimney sweep to come into your home to clean, inspect, or repair your chimney, fireplace, or other heating appliance, you want to be sure this person is reputable, trustworthy, and experienced. The best way to ensure you have hired the best chimney sweep is to only hire a sweep who has been certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). Magic Sweep is proud to provide chimney sweeps to the residents of the Hampton Roads/Tidewater area who have all received CSIA certifications. After working on chimneys for 37 years, we know what a difference this certification means in chimney service. We would like to tell you why CSIA certification is so important when hiring a chimney sweep.

Why Choose a CSIA certified chimney sweep makes such a difference on service - Chesapeake VA - Magic Sweep

REPUTABLE

Founded in 1983 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the education of chimney and venting safety, the CSIA offers certifications to chimney and venting professionals who undergo the educational training and pass the certification exams. They then must sign the CSIA Code of Ethics, which they agree to follow when working in the industry. When you see a chimney sweep wearing the CSIA certification badge on his uniform, you know you can trust this technician to act professionally and honestly. This certification ensures you have a reputable chimney sweep working in your home.

TRUSTWORTHY

Part of the CSIA Code of Ethics specifies behaving honestly, fairly, respectfully, and professionally on every job. If a CSIA-certified chimney sweep engages in deceptive or unfair practices, he will have his certification revoked. Unfortunately, there are a lot of chimney sweeps out there who do not have CSIA certification. Without this certification, you have no way of knowing if the sweep is being honest with you about how much it will cost to repair your chimney. Hiring a CSIA-certified chimney sweep guarantees you will be treated honestly and fairly.

EXPERIENCED

During the educational training sessions for CSIA certification, chimney sweeps learn all about the best chimney and venting safety practices and techniques, including maintenance, repair, and installation services. They also learn about building codes and standards, which they promise to follow as chimney technicians. Of course, Magic Sweep has been in the chimney business since 1979, so you know we are experienced. However, even our newest sweeps have the experience and training they received during the CSIA certification process.

If you are in need of any chimney and venting services, contact us at Magic Sweep. We are happy to schedule an appointment with one of our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps to service your chimney.
