Grill Safety Tips | C.D. Smith Construction Building Community Safety
- Check all the gas lines for signs of decay or dry rot.
- Check gas connections for any corrosion.
- Only use a secured gas cylinder in a vertical position that is in good working condition.
- Check for dents or any other apparent damage, including rust.
- Connect the gas source and open the valve. Then, using a mixture of soap and water, spray the soapy solution on the gas lines and connections. If bubbles appear, there’s a leak or a loose connection. You may need to look into replacement lines or connections to resolve the problem.
- Open the grill lid when igniting to prevent gas build-up.
- Never use any grill indoors, like garages or sheds. This could starve the area of oxygen, putting you and your family at risk.
- Always keep children and flammable materials away from hot surfaces and open flames.
