The InspectionFire forms have been designed for a chimney professional by a chimney professional, but with business and marketing in mind.
Prior to entering the chimney industry in 2013 Daniel Freeman had already spent over 10 years attending business and personal development seminars around the country and read hundreds of books to expand his mind. He completed a Bachelors degree in Marketing Management, and an MBA from Western Governors University.
In the fall of 2013 Daniel started working with a local chimney sweep learning the trade. In 2016 an opportunity was presented to go out on his own and in June of that year he took advantage of it, founding The Chimney Doctor. He begin servicing large condo complexes in the area, pursue additional training and certification, and began focusing on performing high quality inspections. Today his company runs primarily without him as he steers the ship, involves himself in training, and strives to improve processes within the business.
Daniel also has become involved in the industry by joining several Standards Technical Panels (STPs) with Underwriters Laboratory (STP0103 and STP0127) and helped assist in the development of the ANSI Accredited NCSG Certifications. As a technical instructor for Copperfield Academy, the largest provider of education in the chimney industry, Daniel strives to improve education and professionalism within the industry and has taught at conventions for both the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG).
In 2018 Daniel began working on the forms used in his company today. In 2021, after multiple requests regarding what he was doing, he decided to launch InspectionFire LLC and bring all the thought, development, and design put into his forms to the broader industry at large.
