How to Keep Your New Year From Going Up in Smoke

Having five generations of experience under our belts, our family at Davis Brothers Chimney Sweep & Masonry would like to welcome our clients into the New Year with a few tips and reminders to make sure everybody has a warm and safe 2019.

Throughout the years, our chimney sweeps have saved many homes and many more lives because we know what to look for when performing fireplace maintenance. As we continue to grow our business, we encourage homeowners who are seeking fireplace maintenance in Voorhees, NJ to contact our team of professionals to schedule their annual inspection. As for other areas of South Jersey, we’re looking to help out the people of Cape May County, NJ with fireplace sweepings, something that should be done on an annual basis. Though it may not be high on most people’s 2019 to-do list, our compassionate company is here with a few reminders and signs to look for, which may potentially save your life!    


  • Perform annual fireplace cleanings, which will prevent deterioration. If your fireplace doesn’t have yearly maintenance, you run the risk of having the bricks/blocks shifting or cracking. This may lead to the creation of new paths for a fire to seep into and the potential of dangerous combustions.
  • Always check for soot buildup at the beginning and end of the winter season. This potentially life-threatening substance can and will build up over time and may cause a chimney fire.
  • Look for any leaks or water-related issues with your fireplace, and this can result in significant structural problems and amount to be a very costly repair.
  • Always be sure to have a functioning fire-alarm and non-expired fire extinguisher on hand if your cozy fire spreads beyond the fireplace.

At Davis Brothers Chimney Sweep & Masonry, we care deeply for our clients and their families and want to wish everyone a happy and safe new year, and that begins with a clean chimney and fireplace for all! We serve the residents of New Jersey for all fireplace and chimney needs and promise always to sweep you off your feet with our services.
