The CSIA Badge – Making Life Easier for Homeowners for 30+ Years
Finding a reliable and knowledgeable chimney and venting company can be challenging, especially since there’s no industry-wide standard or regulation. That’s right – anyone can slap a sign on their truck and call themselves a chimney sweep or dryer vent technician.
But do you really want just anyone in your home?
How do you know if the sweep is making valid recommendations or quoting you a fair price? How can you be sure they’re making things safer and better – not worse?
Do they even know what they’re talking about or what they’re doing?
We don’t think keeping your home in great condition and your family safe and warm should be so difficult. That’s why we exist.
For more than 30 years, the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) has made it easier for homeowners to find reliable, experienced, highly trained chimney and venting professionals to tackle maintenance, installation, and repairs.
We’ve created a standard of excellence in the industry by providing expert-led education and training to industry professionals. Because homeowners deserve the highest standard of care – a level of care only the best-trained pros can provide.

You Have High Standards. We Do, Too.
We take homeowner safety seriously, which is why we hold our technicians to the highest standards – standards we created as fire safety experts.
The CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep® credential is awarded to those who have passed an intensive examination based on fire codes, clearances, and standards for the construction and maintenance of chimneys and venting systems.
What does that mean for you, the homeowner?
It means when you choose a CSIA-Certified technician, you can be confident you’ve made a good choice. There’ll be no question whether the man or woman on the job is experienced, qualified, knowledgeable, and professional – you’ll know they are. They have to be to earn and maintain their certification.
In addition to making sure professionals are sufficiently educated and trained to perform their jobs in the field, we believe it’s equally important (if not more so) that professionals who hold a CSIA credential act ethically when interacting with customers. That’s why each CSIA credential holder must also agree to and sign our Code of Ethics.
So, if you have high standards for the chimney pros coming into your home, look for the CSIA-Certified badge. We have high standards, too!
