Chimney sweep

The owners of land and rooms (condominiums) are obliged to arrange for the cleaning and inspection of their facilities requiring sweeping and inspection as well as other prescribed chimney sweeping work. Proof of work carried out shall be provided by means of prescribed forms, which shall be handed over by the owner to the authorised district chimney sweep, unless the latter has carried out the work himself.


"Sovereign tasks" such as fireplace show, acceptance of your system and sweeping records are reserved exclusively for the authorized district chimney sweep.

Before awarding non-sovereign tasks, you should check that the chimney sweep in question is registered in the chimney sweep register of the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control.

Which work on your combustion plant is due at which times can be found in the fireplace notice provided by your authorized district chimney sweep as part of the fireplace show.
