I guess this depends on the region. In Germany they are sort of authority
not only for cleaning but for chimney and combustion plant verification and
certification of the installed instances. Typically you will have no
choice, the whole country is divided into sweeping districts with one
sweeper for each district (they've been monopolies by law until 2012), and
you will have to have your stoves and chimneys and boilers and smoke tubes
etc. controlled periodically by "your" sweeper...
