Grill Safety written over a back ground of steaks grilling

The smell of hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill; family spending time together; pool parties; music playing; all of these are things that make summer fantastic. If you are planning on having a family BBQ or even just grilling for yourself, it is a good idea to be aware of grill safety. While we, SERVPRO of North Kanawha Valley, would be happy to help if fire damage did occur, we would like to share some tips to help you out this summer season.

For the grill masters and BBQ legends:

  1. If you are using a grill, be sure that it isn’t defective in any way. Always check for propane leaks, and if you’re using charcoal, make sure there are no holes rusted into the grill.
  1. Always make sure your grill is on a flat surface. If it isn’t stable, it may fall, causing fire damage.
  1. When using a charcoal grill, let the starter fluid soak into the coals for a minute before igniting them to allow the explosive vapors time to dissipate.
  1. If you are grilling using an electric grill, never use lighter fluid or other combustible materials.
  1. Although a shady spot may seem nice to grill under, do not use grills close to the house or any other structures where they have the potential to catch on fire.
