It’s recently been brought to our attention here at Jackson Heating & Cooling that the wire cleaning brush can be a dangerous tool if you are not carefully paying attention to what you are doing. What could the dangers of wire grill brushes possibly be you are asking??? Well, this week, one of our employees had just cleaned his grill and noticed something on the grate. After carefully examining it, he realized it was a small piece of bristle from his wire brush he had just cleaned with.
We began looking into this and see that it is a common danger that people should be aware of and we want to make all of our friends aware of this as well. CBS News posted an article last year on this exact same subject. There have been reports of men and women puncturing their neck tissue and even perforating their gastrointestinal tract requiring emergency surgery. We certainly don’t want to discourage you from grilling but just be aware of the dangers involved with wire grill brushes.
There are some alternatives to the grill brush. We found a great article here that we recommend you checking out. There are certainly many great articles out on the web so check them out. It’s our goal to keep our friends updated with these grilling tips that we feel like you need to know. Stay tuned for more great grilling tips from the Super Girl Grillers!
