Grill Safety for Summer 2023
Every summer we like to write a blog reminding our readers how important it is o grill safety. Grilling is a great way to enjoy delicious food with friends and family, especially during these warm summer months. However, it’s important to remember that grilling can pose a fire hazard if not done safely. Here are some tips for preventing fire damage to your home while grilling:
Keep the grill away from your home and any flammable objects. The grill should be placed on a level surface at least 10 feet away from your house, garage, and any trees, shrubs, or other flammable objects.
Clean your grill regularly to prevent grease buildup. Grease buildup can ignite and cause a fire, so it’s important to clean your grill after each use. Use a grill brush to remove any food debris and grease.
Check for gas leaks before using a gas grill. Gas leaks can cause an explosion or fire, so it’s important to check for leaks before using a gas grill. Apply a soap and water solution to the gas hose and connections, and if you see any bubbles, turn off the gas immediately and have the grill serviced by a professional.
Never leave the grill unattended. It’s important to keep a close eye on the grill while it’s in use. Never leave it unattended, and keep children and pets away from the grill.
Have a fire extinguisher nearby. In case of a fire, it’s important to have a fire extinguisher nearby. Make sure you know how to use it before you need it.
By following these safety tips, you can enjoy grilling without putting your home at risk of fire damage. Remember, safety should always come first when using any type of grill.
