Summer is in full swing and whether you enjoy grilling burgers on charcoal or charring vegetables on a propane grill, it’s important to take safety precautions when grilling to reduce fire hazards. As leaders in the fire and smoke damage property restoration industry, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE’s network of franchise owners know first-hand how important fire prevention is.
Recently featured on WTOC-TV, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of Savannah/Hilton owner, Adam Finn, reminds us all that grills should be located at least 10 feet away from structures such as homes, awnings, shrubbery, or other flammable materials. Adam also recommends that homeowners using propane grills routinely clean and inspect their equipment for potential leaks. Providing additional insight alongside WBAL-TV 11, Michael Hyman, owner of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of Northwest Baltimore, stresses the importance of homeowners using gas grills to be extremely cautious if the flame goes out. He recommends staying safe by turning off the grill and waiting several minutes before relighting.
After an emotional event like a property fire, dealing with the restoration process can seem especially overwhelming. At 1-800 WATER DAMAGE, we understand how stressful these situations can be and are here to help with care and compassion.
