Make The Right Choice – Hire Certified Chimney Technicians

Are you ready to schedule your regular chimney maintenance? Whether you need repairs, a good cleaning, or just a standard inspection, it’s important to hire a company you can trust. Unfortunately, scams are all too common in this industry. We strongly advise you to hire a company that has a solid reputation, with certifications to back up any of the services they offer.

At Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney, we are CSIA, NFI, and FIRE certified! On top of that, we have 15 years of experience serving satisfied customers all throughout this area. Learn more about these organizations below. Questions? Give us a call, and we’ll be happy to assist you!


The CSIA is widely acknowledged across the country and holds the standard for chimney care. This non-profit organization strives to educate sweeps and homeowners on a national basis, and they have successfully increased fireplace safety awareness since their establishment in 1983. If a chimney company is striving to be the best, you can bet that they are CSIA trained and certified!

The great part about the CSIA is that they require their sweeps to renew their certifications every few years. In an industry where new techniques and regulations are constantly introduced, renewing your education on a regular basis is extremely important! When you hire a CSIA certified sweep, you can rest easy that they know what they’re doing no matter what.


The NFI is another organization that strives to increase the safety of homeowners all throughout the nation. Like the CSIA, sweeps are educated on the safest techniques and practices to use, and they must renew their credentials every three years. They provide extensive knowledge so that sweeps everywhere can provide the best service possible. When you hire a NFI certified sweep, you are in good hands!


When it comes to delivering a top-notch inspection, you can count on the FIRE to provide you with the knowledge and detail you’re looking for. This organization also focuses on installation services, as well as investigating the root of any potential issue a homeowner’s fireplace may be experiencing. The schooling they provide is specifically designed and developed to make sweeps the best that they can be when providing your regular chimney maintenance.
