About Our Memberships & Certifications
We have certifications and memberships with the following:
- Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA): The CSIA is recognized throughout the country as a leader in training and education. They do everything possible to ensure both sweeps and fireplace owners are equipped for it all! They also have a strict code of ethics and require recertification every few years to ensure sweeps are always up to date and prepared.
- National Fireplace Institute (NFI): The NFI gives sweeps the knowledge they need to excel when installing and servicing your appliances and products. Proper installation is vital to safe and proper functioning, so trusting an NFI-certified sweep will ensure you move forward with ease and peace of mind.

There are networking opportunities, news about the latest trends in the field, training opportunities, and lots of chances to gain more knowledge.

Why Should I Hire a Certified Chimney Professional?
The big issue with the chimney industry is that it isn’t actually regulated by an overseeing organization. A plumber or electrician, for instance, needs to meet certain licensing requirements in order to perform their job. As for chimney sweeps? No requirement needed. That means, anyone who thinks they can work on chimneys could simply open a business, slap their logo on a truck, then start taking jobs.
A bit unsettling, isn’t it? Industry experts thought so, too, which is how the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) came about. Thankfully, now homeowners can look for certain credentials to ensure their technicians actually know their stuff.
In the end, hiring a certified chimney professional ensures you are working with someone who has received formal training and passed rigorous exams in the field. This reduces the risk of subpar work, enhances safety, and helps prevent potential hazards associated with chimney problems.
Do Chimney Certifications Expire?
Certainly – and as they should! We’re in an industry that’s always changing, improving, and evolving, so staying up to date on any new techniques, standards, coding requirements, and more is essential. By having time limits on how long a certification can last, sweeps have the opportunity to learn new things – and re-learn old things – every few years.
Can I Trust a Professional Who Is Not Certified?
Our advice? No. A certification provides that extra level of assurance that the individual has received formal training. Someone who hasn’t invested in proper education might leave your chimney vulnerable to further damage. In fact, it’s likely they’ll miss issues, perform repairs incorrectly, or even charge you for services that you don’t actually need.
There are other things to keep an eye out for, too, though. While certifications are definitely a valuable indicator of a professional’s competence, you should also research the professional’s experience, references, and customer reviews.
