When you look at your BBQ grill what do you see? If you come to realize that your grill is anything but clean, it’s time to take action. At Bar-B-Clean, we take great pride in helping our customers maintain a clean and safe grill. However, if you’re interested in tackling this task on your own, we have some tips for you to follow:

1. Gather all the Necessary Equipment

While elbow grease is a good start, you’ll need more than that to do the job right. In addition to a wire brush, water, Dawn dish cleaner, gloves, and a few disposable rags are a must.

2. Brush and Soak

After an initial pass with your wire brush to remove loose debris, place all the grates and panels in a bucket of soapy water. Once 10 to 15 minutes elapses, pull each piece out and scrub again.

Tip: you may need to repeat this step several times to achieve the desired results.

3. Vacuum What’s Left Behind

After removing the grates you’ll have easy access to the grill. Using a hand vacuum, pick up all debris, such as loose food particles.
If there’s anything you can’t get with a vacuum, you may need to knock it loose with your wire brush.

4. Wash and Wipe

Once you scrub, scrub, and scrub some more, it’s time to wash everything with clean water and wipe it dry.
In addition to grates and panels, pay close attention to the outside of the grill. You can use a basic household sponge and soapy water to shine your grill.

Tip: don’t use steel wool, as this will leave fine scratches all over the finish.

5. Finish it Off

At this point, you’re closing in on the finish line. Once you put everything back in place, use a stainless steel cleaner to make your grill look as good as new.

Final Tip

As you clean your BBQ grill don’t hesitate to inspect all tubes and gas lines, paying attention to anything that needs repairing or replaced.

So, there you have it. While it’s easy to overlook the importance of cleaning your grill, you should get into the habit of doing this at least once a year. If you’re not up to the task, contact the professionals at Bar-B-Clean.
