What You Get When You Hire a CSIA- Certified Chimney Sweep®
Unparalleled Experience + Training
We established the CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep® (CCS) credential back in 1983 to provide homeowners with a means to measure a chimney sweep’s technical expertise.
You see, there is no national chimney and venting industry regulation, which means when you hire someone without certification, you have no idea if the person is qualified, knowledgeable, or even capable of doing the job you need them to do.
But every single CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep® has passed an exam that tests their technical knowledge of chimney and venting systems – so when you see that CCS badge, you can be confident you’re hiring someone qualified and trained to solve your problems and take great care of your system.
High Ethical Standards
As a non-profit that’s committed to making home life safer and better for homeowners, we believe it’s our duty to send trained and honest techs out into the world. So, our Certified Chimney Sweeps® don’t just have to prove their technical knowledge – they also have to agree to abide by our Code of Ethics.
Each sweep agrees to be honest, fair, respectful, and professional in all interactions with customers, and to continually hold themselves to higher standards. This means a commitment to ongoing education and compliance with all building codes, installation instructions, recognized chimney and venting practices, and safety practices.
Those higher standards translate to a safer, better experience for you, the homeowner, which is what you deserve.
There are a lot of programs out there for finding home service professionals. Big box stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot have their preferred vendors, Google has its Google Guaranteed pros, Angie’s List and HomeAdvisor have their lists.
But here’s the thing: None of them actually vet the knowledge, skills, or ethics of the companies and pros they’re recommending to you.
Many only require a fee of some kind to be on their lists, which means the companies with the money are put on the “best” lists. But no one can pay their way into CSIA certification.
Everyone must earn their place by passing the exam and investing in ongoing education. And that place has to continuously be earned. At any given time, a Certified Chimney Sweep® can lose their credential if they violate the Code of Ethics.
It’s all because we think a credential should really mean something. It should give homeowners peace of mind and guarantee better service.
