National Chimney Sweep Guild 2018 National Convention

Always seeking to further our education and skills, the members of the Oregon Chimney Sweep’s Association meet each May day weekend. This year,  our annual meeting will be moved to be in conjunction with the NCSG 2018 National Convention, here in Portland, Oregon April 18th – 21st.

Remember to only hired certified chimney sweeps to inspect your fireplace and chimney. The O.C.S.A. credential was established in 1983 to provide homeowners a means to measure a chimney sweep’s technical expertise. In addition to passing a rigorous examination, each person wishing to hold a O.C.S.A. certification must also agree to abide by a stringent Code of Ethics. We feel this is critical to protecting homeowners from potential scams. If a O.C.S.A. Certified Chimney Sweep is found to be in violation, their certification may be revoked.
