Grilling Safety Tips You Can Take To Avoid A Fire In Your Home
Grill fires peak during the summer season. Grilling outdoors is one of the most popular ways to cook food. A grill placed too close to any object is a fire hazard. According to the Fire Protection Association (NFPA), nearly 10,000 home fires involve grills. If you experience fire, call SERVPRO of College Park / Hyattsville and SERVPRO of District Heights / Landover. Follow the tips below for grilling safety.
Tips For Grilling Safety
- Use propane and charcoal BBQ grills only outdoors.
- Place the grill away from your property, deck railings and out from under leaves and overhanging branches.
- When using a charcoal grill, only use starter fluids designed for barbecue grills.
- When using a gas grill, check for leaks before using it for the first time each year. Applying soapy water to the hoses will easily and safely reveal any leaks.
- When camping, always use a flame-retardant tent and set up camp far away from the fire.
- When finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposing of them in a metal container.
