Why Hire a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep®?
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) is a non-profit educational organization that has established the only nationally recognized certification and accreditation program for chimney sweeps and the venting service industry in the United States. The certification program was developed in keeping with CSIA’s commitment to the safety of chimney and venting systems and to the elimination of residential chimney fires, carbon monoxide intrusion and other chimney-related safety hazards. CSIA devotes its resources to educating the public, chimney service professionals and other fire prevention specialists, as well as the insurance industry about the prevention and correction of chimney venting system hazards to avoid the loss of lives and property.

A CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® is up-to-date with fire codes, standards, regulations and proven solutions to chimney problems. More than just a person with some brushes and a truck, a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® is one who has the following credentials:

- Commitment to education
- Commitment to professionalism
- Knowledge of all types of creosote removal
- Solutions for complex draft and smoke problems
- Seasoned problem-solver
Hiring a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® brings value to your dollar because you will be getting a professional with proven results the first time.

This dedication only confirms the commitment a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® has for the industry and your safety.
