You must plan for risk of fire before you start building.
Boverket has rules for how to build so that fire safety is attained.
These rules apply for new building or if you will change an existing building.
Ready-built buildings should also be managed correctly to prevent a fire.
For all fireplaces a chimney-sweeper should conduct a fire prevention inspection at regular intervals.
Fireplaces should also be swept at regular intervals.
Every municipality decides itself how often different types of fireplaces should be swept.
