The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) is a nonprofit organization that has been around since 1983. It spreads fireplace and chimney knowledge to homeowners and sweeps all throughout the country so that homes everywhere can function safer and more efficiently.
The CSIA is nationally recognized and holds the standard when it comes to chimney care and education… and the staff at SirVent Chimney is proud to hold their certifications! Learn more about this organization below. It won’t take long for you to see why the CSIA receives countless praises and recognition year after year!
Raising the Bar
The CSIA maintains such a good reputation is because the board of directors is always raising the bar for themselves and for their sweeps. In an industry where techniques and technology change on a regular basis, it’s important to stay on top of everything, and the CSIA is always pushing their sweeps to better themselves!
This is why anyone who holds a CSIA certification must renew it every 3 years in order to maintain their title. When you hire a certified sweep, you can rest easy because they are up to date on any of the latest coding and regulations. Technicians obtaining their certification will take written tests and go through tons of hands-on learning experiences to better themselves for all of their future customers.
People trust the CSIA because they prove themselves time and time again. With every year that passes, they never fail to stay current on all of the latest developments in the chimney sweep trade. There’s no doubt that they expect a lot from the sweeps they train. We take pride in our CSIA certifications because we know the training we go through helps make us the best that we can be… and our customers deserve that!
Maintaining a High Moral Code
We also respect the CSIA for their strong ethical viewpoints and their selfless mission statement. This organization wants its sweeps to use what they learn to better serve the public and treat homeowners with professionalism and honesty in every job they take on. They push their sweeps to respect anyone they work with and to educate the public on how to maintain a safer home. That’s why every CSIA certified professional must sign a code of ethics before they are granted their credentials.
When it comes to keeping the public informed, the CSIA is on top of it! There are tons of things that can go wrong when a chimney isn’t well maintained (house fires, chimney fires, gas leaks, etc.), and the leaders of this organization want to do all they can to ensure these disasters never occur. When you work with a CSIA certified expert, you know you’re in the best hands possible. That’s why we want you to work with us!
