Grilling Safety

7/8/2022 (Permalink)

July is the season for grilling outdoors throughout the Midwest and that means more accidental grilling fires. SERVPRO of Burlington responds to fire damage emergencies in Louisa, Henry, Des Moines, and Lee counties throughout the year and offer these tips for propane grill safety from the National Fire Protection Association

Propane Grills

  • Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year
  • Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose
  • A propane leak will release bubbles
  • If your grill has a gas leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off both the gas tank and the grill.
  • If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again
  • If the leak does not stop, call the fire department
  • If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department.
  • Do not move the grill.
  • If the flame goes out, turn off the grill and gas and wait at least five minutes before re-lighting it.
