The chimney industry is sometimes called the fire safety industry. Fire is unpredictable. No matter how much precaution you take as a homeowner, when the perfect circumstances line up to allow a fire, it can result in disaster and damage. Professionals in the chimney industry have to make it a regular priority to stay on top of industry advancements, changes, and regulations. Failing to do so can lead to a devastating end.

The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) has been the industry standard for professional credentials since the 1980’s. CSIA members are required to complete both classroom and field training that is accredited by Indiana State Workforce Innovation Council, Office for Career and Technical Schools. Members also must adhere to a stringent code of ethics. This protects the homeowner from scams. When a chimney sweep is a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® (CCS) a homeowner can rest assured that the professional who enters their home and services their chimney system knows all about the fire science that keeps the chimney working.  In addition, the new products, advancements, concerns, and recalls. In fact, a CSIA member is required to re-certify every three years, either by examination or continued education credits.
