For Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps it’s all about serving our customers. To us that means providing you with prompt and expert service! We have been privileged to be recognized as a valuable resource for homeowners in the Greenville area when it comes to maintaining and repairing your chimney, fireplaces, and venting systems. Due to our continued growth and ever increasing customer base, we are proud to announce that we have expanded our staff and added another technician to our team to serve you even better than before. We welcome Nick Henderson, a local Simpsonville, SC resident to our team and ask that you do the same.

One of the many things that distinguishes us from other chimney companies is our commitment to ensuring that our technicians are fully trained and understand the dynamics of properly serving our customers. We are very selective in who we add to our team, just as we know you are very selective about who you allow into your home. Applicants for our technician position must, as part of our requirement listing, pass a background check, possess strong verbal and written communication skills, and must demonstrate their commitment to being “all in” for our valuable customers before they are even considered. Once our candidates meet our stringent requirements, we pay close attention to their approach to work and their overall attitude.

For us, customer service is not a department, it is an attitude. Our technicians truly want to help our customers, realizing that we are dealing with our homeowner’s safety as well as peace of mind. Our team enjoys working together in a rewarding environment where they are treated with respect and encouraged to continually expand their skills. Focusing on building the right team allows us to better serve our customers. We only hire those who will fit in with our corporate culture. Our chimney professionals — Our entire staff is here to serve our customers.

While it’s difficult to teach attitude, we can provide our technicians with the technical training necessary to be the best inspector, advisor, and technician our customers seek. Proper training is another way we are committed to our staff and our customers. Our willingness to invest in our technicians’ education distinguishes us in the marketplace. Our technicians are not only certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), but they receive continuing education to keep them up-to-date on new technology, tools, and techniques to better service our customers.

Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps is willing to invest the time and money it takes to ensure our technicians receive their certification. CSIA offers extensive and comprehensive classroom training, training in the CSIA lab, and actual in-home training. “CSIA’s National Chimney Sweep Training School” teaches sweeping and inspection of different chimney systems, operation of the necessary equipment, health and safety considerations and much more. It is step-by-step instruction in the codes, clearances, standards and practices of the chimney service trade. After completing the program, many will have earned the CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® credential.”

Even Angie’s List recognizes the importance of hiring a CSIA certified chimney professional. “It is important to choose a chimney sweep that is certified and has plenty of experience. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) is a “non-profit, educational organization dedicated to chimney and venting system safety.”

When you call Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps you will have full confidence that our technicians have the expertise, attitude, and ability to properly care for all your chimney related needs.

We welcome Nick to our team and ask that our customers do the same! He will be fully trained and ready to provide you with quality chimney services and have the support of our entire team to continue to offer the best chimney and venting services possible for you. We look forward to serving you.
