The chimney sweep profession is not regulated by the federal government or the state of Pennsylvania or West Virginia, so it is easy for someone to purchase some chimney sweeping rods and brushes and call themselves a chimney sweep.

Chimney sweeps that are certified through the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) are educated, tested thoroughly, and are held to the highest ethical standards. Just to be clear, companies aren’t certified, individuals are certified. To see if an individual is certified visit www.csia.org.

Advance Chimney Sweeps runs a back-ground check, pre-screened drug test and random drug tests on EVERY employee throughout the course of their employment with our company. We will not put someone into your home that we won’t allow into our own home.

In today’s age of technology, you have all the resources available at your fingertips to thoroughly research a company. Google reviews and the Better Business Bureau are wonderful resources to check on a company. If you scroll to the bottom of this page you can click on the GOOGLE or BBB icon and it will link you directly to our google page to check our reviews or to the BBB page to see our BBB rating.

Just remember that the bitterness of poor workmanship is long remembered after the sweetness of a cheap price is forgotten.

Do you really want to hire the lowest bidder in an industry that deals with fire safety and carbon monoxide in relationship to your two greatest assets…your family and your home?
