BBQ Safety Tips
The time has come for Summer BBQ
Many homeowners in the Bountiful, Utah, area will be calling SERVPRO of Bountiful to have us clean their fire damaged home because of bad BBQ practices. Here are some tips to make sure you are not one of those homeowners.
- Distance - Make sure the BBQ is at least five feet away from your home. Siding easily starts on fire if the grill is too close.
- Look Up - Many homeowners will make the mistake of grilling under an eave. When the grill flares up it will start the eave on fire causing much damage.
- Yard Care - Leaving the yard long, having weed buildup, or leaving dead plants close to the grill can start with just a spark. The dead grass or plants can cause smoke or even structural damage if close to the home.
SERVPRO of Bountiful will come to your home if you have a fire problem. We hope you don't, but we can respond quickly to clean up your home.
