{Crosby, Texas, August 29, 2016] Beau Kidd of McSweepy’s Chimney Service recently attended the Chimney Safety Institute of America’s (CSIA) National Chimney Sweep Training School, in Plainfield, Indiana.  Beau Kidd received extensive instruction in the latest techniques of chimney cleaning, inspection, and maintenance. He is now one of just 1,400 qualified professionals to hold the CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep credential.

The National Chimney Sweep Training School is a six-day-long, highly intensive program that provides sweeps with both classroom and real world experience. Under the guidance of CSIA instructors, the students learned how to properly inspect, diagnose, clean and repair chimney and venting systems in order to better protect people against fire and carbon monoxide poisonings. Students also receive in-depth instruction on the National Fire Protection Association’s Code 211 and other codes and standards covering chimney and venting systems.

During the school, Beau Kidd assisted in the installation of a liner in a chimney, joined with other students to sweep and clean chimneys in the field, was educated about proper safety techniques, and participated in the demonstration of the latest tools designed to aid in the maintenance of chimneys and venting systems.

“Certification through CSIA demonstrates a true commitment by the student to become the very best in their industry,” said Ashley Eldridge, Director of Education for CSIA. “By becoming more knowledgeable and certified, they become more helpful to the homeowner/customer that seeks out the CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep because they want to enjoy their fireplace, stove, masonry heater and other apparatus with less risk.”
