When hiring a chimney company, it’s important to take their credentials into consideration. Companies that require sweeps to undergo educational courses and schooling from established training facilities will provide you high-quality, long-lasting results for your system. The most highly-esteemed organization in the chimney industry is the Chimney Safety Institute of America.

About The CSIA
The Chimney Safety Institute of America was established in 1983 with the goal of educating sweeps. We also want to keep homeowners informed on safe fireplace practices. They now set the standard when it comes to chimney care and fire safety. They remain an industry leader in chimney and venting education. Sweeps that choose to work with the CSIA can earn the following titles: CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep, CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician, and CSIA Master Chimney Sweep.
At Lou Curley’s Chimney Service, all of our lead technicians are CSIA certified to work on both dryer vents and chimneys. Along with this, we are home to Pennsylvania’s only CSIA Master Chimney Sweep, meaning we have obtained and continue to maintain every one of the certifications that the CSIA offers. We’ve also completed the following courses that the CSIA offers: Chimney Physics, Relining Chimneys with Stainless Steel, and Inspection & Report Writing. When it comes to chimney knowledge, we know it all!
Becoming A Master Chimney Sweep
Becoming a CSIA Master Chimney Sweep isn’t an easy feat, so we’re proud of it. This honor is awarded to those who have been certified sweeps with the CSIA for at least 10 years. The sweep must also be certified in dryer vent cleaning, and they need to complete the required course list for master sweeps. It’s a lot of work, and it takes a lot of dedication, so it’s definitely an accomplishment that we take pride in.
