Grilling Safety Tips

5/19/2020 (Permalink)

As Memorial Day is approaching here are some Grilling Safety Tips...

  • Your grill, whether gas or charcoal, should be on a level surface outdoors, away from anything that could be ignited by flames (bushes, fences, etc.)
  • NEVER use a grill indoors
  • Keep your grill clean and well-maintained
  • Never leave a hot grill unattended or let children play near it.

Grilling Safety Tips For Charcoal Grills

  • Do not add lighter fluid directly to hot coals. The flame could travel up the stream of fluid and burn you.
  • Never use gasoline or kerosene to light charcoal fire.
  • Use flame-retardant mitts and long-handled barbeque tongs, as coals can reach up to 1,000 degrees.
  • To dispose of coals, allow the ashes to cool for at least 48 hours before disposal in an non-combustible container. if you cannot wait 48 hours, carefully place coals individually in an can of sand or bucket of water.

Grilling Safety Tips For Gas Grills

  • Check your grill's hoses for leaks before using it for the first time each year. apply a light soap water and solution to the hose. a propane leak will release bubbles, if you have a leak and it will not stop after the grill and gas is turned off, have your grill serviced by a professional.
  • If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department, DO NOT move the grill.
  • Do not keep a filled propane tank in hot car or trunk. when getting containers refilled, make that your last stop before going home.
  • Store propane tanks in an upright position and never indoors.

From all of us at SERVPRO, happy grilling and stay safe!
