We are different. We strive to be different. Why? Only because our mission statement requires us to. If all chimney service companies held themselves to our standards we wouldn't need to be different, but we believe you deserve better.
Here's why we do it better:
#1 CSIA Certified
Chimney service is not regulated in Washington State. Any person may sweep and inspect chimneys without any certification, license or insurance. We require all of our lead sweeps and inspectors to pass a rigorous 2-Part, 130 question test from the Chimney Sweep Institute of America, the only nationally recognized certification for the chimney sweep industry. We are the ONLY Seattle based certified chimney service company! This proves we are dedicated to going above and beyond the normal to honor our mission statement.
#2 We are Clean
We go above and beyond to keep your home safe and clean. We use a combination of drop cloths and high powered HEPA vacuums for sweeps and eco-mesh, tarps and dust catchers for masonry. All while adhering to our strict "no shoes or booties" policy ensures your white carpet will remain white and your prized roses will not be destroyed.
#3 We Power Sweep
Its just a better way! This is the latest addition to the chimney sweeping industry. It's more efficient, cleans better and is much safer for your chimney's flue. Using power drills and specialized brushes we can now clean every crack and cranny of your chimney's system to remove 100% of the creosote!
#4 We Value Your Time
If you can't trust a company with your time you can't trust them at all! It's true! We have the shortest appointment window of any of our competitors and make it our priority to show up on time or give sufficient notice if we are to be early or late.
#5 We Belong To Organizations
As our mission statement describes, we are dedicated to being the experts in our industry. This requires constant education and updates on industry changes and updates. For this reason we belong to the following organizations: Chimney Sweep Institute of America(CSIA), National Chimney Sweep Guild(NCSG), Oregon Chimney Sweeps Association(OCSA), Better Business Bureau (BBB) and Annual attendees of the National Chimney Sweep Convention and Trade Show.
#6 We have Proper Licensing
In Seattle, chimney sweeps are not required to have a contractors license. We are licensed for not only chimney sweeping but for masonry and stove installations! Our general contractors license is through Washington State and kept current. License # PRISTSL917CR
#7 We have Liability Insurance
This is also is not required for chimney service companies in Washington. This protects you if a worker accidentally damages your property while working. Our policy covers up to $1,000,000 and proof of this policy is always available on request!
#8 We are Bonded
You guessed it! This is also not required for chimney service companies in Washington state. All of our employees are bonded and always can be trusted to be in your home.
#9 Workers Comp Insurance
A lot of the areas chimney sweep companies subcontract and 1099 their employees. This means they carry no Worker's Comp Insurance and if their employee gets hurt on your property you could be liable for hospital bills, and if serious, long term care. All of our employees are covered by Washington's Labor and Industries and are safe to work on your home.
#10 We have Proper Equipment
Chimney restoration work requires many specialized tools and equipment. We have the industry's latest tools and methods to repair, clean, and inspect your chimney properly and cost effectively, including: HEPA vacuums, power sweeping equipment, video inspection equipment, masonry equipment, and much, much more.
