Re: Chimney Sweep...

Here's a link for the Canton Zurich - pages 5, 6, 7 show which kind of heating systems' chimneys have to be professionally cleaned how often:

P.S. I just saw that if a chimney is used only very seldom (or, in your case, not at all) then it must still be checked periodically (this applies for Cant. Zurich). The relevant Cantonal department will be able to tell you how often.
Wanted to ask about a chimney sweep, and by the powers of search came across this thread. We are in the Canton of Zuerich, and going by the PDF linked above, we just need to get the chimney (not main source of heating, will only occasionally be used, and just for wood) checked out every 5 years.

Will post back how much it cost onece done.
