Keep Your Grill Safely Clean By Following These Five Steps

There are many benefits to practicing consistent grill cleaning all season long in Affton, MO. For one, you will have better-tasting food. Additionally, maintaining your grill is an important step in reducing the risk of a grease fire breaking out. You should always have an extinguisher close by when you grill and know which fire cleanup crew to call. Keep your grill safely clean by following these five steps.

1. Get Prepared

Before you start any grill maintenance, you need to make sure that you have the proper supplies on hand and that the grill is ready to go. You will need a variety of cleaning supplies including a bucket of soapy water, a grill brush, a soft wire brush, and several towels. Check that all dials are switched off and disconnect the gas line.

2. Clean the Grates, Plates, and Drip Pan

Carefully remove the grates and metal plates from the grill and place them in the bucket of soapy water. Detach the drip pan, empty it out, and add it to the bucket. Allow these items to soak for five to ten minutes and then use the grill cleaning brush to scrub. Finish by spraying them off with a hose.

3. Clean the Burners

Completely clean the burners of any ash, grease, or other residues using the grill brush. Using the soft wire brush, make sure to unclog all the burner holes.

4. Clean the Interior of the Grill

Wash all interior surfaces with the soapy water and scrub off any grease and smoke buildup. Next, rinse off all the soap with clean water and use towels to dry.

5. Heat the Grill

Finish grill cleaning by putting all parts back in their proper place. Heat the grill for at least ten minutes before attempting to cook anything.
From better tasting food to a safe fire-free grilling experience, cleaning is an important part of maintaining a grill. Periodically deep clean your grill with these easy steps.
