Do I need a certificate when I have my chimney swept?

When you have your chimney swept it is compulsory that the chimney sweep gives you a certificate to prove to your insurance company in the event of a chimney fire, you have had your chimney swept by a trained and qualified professional. More and more insurance companies are requesting this. Your insurance may be invalid if you have a chimney fire with no proof of sweeping.
