Chimney sweeping

If you own a property in France, you need to ensure the chimney is swept once a year. In case of fire, your insurance company may refuse to cover if you can’t prove the chimney had been swept.

Chimney sweeping in France is done by roofers. You will find one in the yellow pages here under couvreur.

Chimney sweeping is called Ramonage” in French. It is usually done in October just before the weather gets cold.
