Getting Your Grill Clean just in Time for Summer

Hey there grill enthusiasts! Now that the dreary winter is over and the sun is shining again, it’s time to start planning for the summer! But before you start inviting all your friends over for a barbecue, it’s important to give your trusty grill a good deep clean. 

After all, it’s been sitting idle all winter and could use a little TLC.

Here's what you'll need:

Tough gloves:

Let’s face it, scrubbing a dirty grill is no picnic and can be tough on your delicate little hands. So, get yourself some good hand protection to keep your hands clean, dry, and unscathed. 

Dish detergent:

Any kind of degreasing soap will do. Ask us about our all natural degreasing agent. 

A bucket:

You’ll need plenty of water and a place to dump all the dirty run-offs. 

And last but not least…

A brush:

And get one with hard bristles that can handle some heavy-duty cleaning.

It's like a recipe, but you can't eat it when you're done:

To start, preheat your grill for 15 minutes to warm up the grease and make it easier to remove. Think of it like preheating an oven before cleaning it. 

Next, turn off the gas using the propane tank valve, then make a bucket of warm water with a few drops of dish soap. Dip your trusty grill scrub brush into the soapy water and start scrubbing those grates. 

The steam from the hot grates will help loosen and remove dirt and grease.

Once you’re done scrubbing, don’t forget to coat the grates with cooking oil so your food won’t stick the next time around. 

Then it’s time to remove and clean the deflectors and gas burners in the same soapy water bucket. Trust us, cleaning these parts will help reduce smoke and prevent burnout on your next grilling adventure.

Now, for the grand finale:

It’s time to tackle the inside of the grill. Place the bucket underneath the grill to catch any dirty water, remove the propane tank or charcoal, and rinse the cook box with a garden hose. Dry all the parts before reassembling, and don’t forget to wipe down the top of the grill with some stainless steel cleaner to make it shine like new!

We hope this guide was helpful and that you’ll have a sizzling summer barbecue party with your sparkling clean gas grill! And if you need some expert cleaning help, don’t hesitate to give Serenity Cleaning a call.
