Importance of Chimney Safety Institute of America-Certified
Like any service call for you home, you want the most knowledgeable technicians working on your chimney and fireplace. Your fireplace and chimney play a key role in keeping your family safe when burning a fire.
And who you hire to perform any maintenance is critical to the end result. By choosing a Chimney Safety Institute of America-certified, or CSIA, technician, you can rest assured knowing you have hired the most knowledgeable and trustworthy professionals in the industry.
According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the CSIA certification is acknowledgment “by industry organizations, insurance underwriters, local, state and federal agencies as the measure of a chimney sweep’s knowledge about the evaluation and maintenance of chimney and venting systems.” And CSIA-certified technicians are among the best-educated chimney professionals that can analyze issues and fix them right the first time.
Students pursuing the CSIA certification must become proficient in a variety of skills, including building codes and regulations, chimney safety and venting system maintenance and evaluation, and more.
