Safety tips for getting the grill ready for summer

grilling.jpgWith summer not that far around the corner, many people are taking out their grills and getting ready for cookout season.

Before you start grilling, there are some safety steps that are important to take. These precautionary measures can help reduce the chances that a cookout results in fires or burns.

Here are 3 tips for ensuring you're safe this grilling season:

1. Cleaning your grill

Grease and other buildup on a grill can create fire risks. Before you start grilling for the season, it is wise to clean your grill, including its exterior, grates, burners, and trays.

2. Checking your grill

Another thing that has big impacts on how likely fire and burn dangers are to arise in relation to grilling is the condition of a grill and its components.

Running safety checks on a grill prior to using it for the first time in a season is important including looking over a grill to see if anything seems off, testing its basic functions, and checking for any gas leaks.

If these checks reveal any red flags, it can be wise to have a professional look at it prior to using it.

It is also worthwhile to check to make sure no recalls have been issued on your grill or other materials you use during cookouts.

3. Picking a good location

Where you put your grill matters. Grilling in the wrong spot could create added fire risks. When picking where to place your grill, make sure to locate it away from:

  • Your house
  • Overhanging branches
  • Eves
  • Deck railings

By taking cautions when grilling, you can ensure a safe environment that offers little to no risks.

We wish everyone a fun and safe grilling season!
