According to http://www.goudengids.be/schoorsteenvegers/ there are still
396 of them in Belgium.
I think it's even required to let the chimney of your house cleaned for
insurance purposes. Many people still use wood or pellets to (partially)
heat their house.

Several crafts men (carpenters, roof repair, etc.) have a sign in the
garden in front of their house, typically mentioning a phone number or
email address.
So one can verify this information on the ground in those cases.
