Clean Your Gas Range

Many people delay cleaning due to a lack of time or know-how. But gas stoves need regular maintenance work to prevent accidental fires or unpleasant charred smells in your Perry, OK, home. Save time and prevent fire hazards by following these simple steps to clean your gas range.

1. Preliminary Cleaning
Always make certain your range is turned off before you begin cleaning!
First, fill a sink or large bowl with hot water and dish soap. Remove the grates and burner caps from the stove and soak them in soapy water. Next, use a dry paper towel or brush to scrape off loose debris from the stovetop. Don't forget to lift off the burner heads and clean beneath them, too. Clearing away food particles helps prevent a smoke smell during cooking.

2. Scrub Away Stains
Make a 1:1 solution of vinegar and water and use it to spray down the gas range until the entire surface is wet, including the dials. Let sit for one minute, then wipe the range with a clean paper towel or rag.
The vinegar solution may not remove all stains. If any stubborn marks remain, dip the head of a toothbrush or other small brush in dish soap and use it to scrub the range until the stains are lifted. Remove any remaining grime with a wet towel.

3. Clean Removeable Parts
Take the grates and burner caps out of the soapy water. Remove any remaining grease with the brush from the previous step. Then, use a pin or needle to clean between the tines of burner heads. 

4. Finish Range Cleaning
Dry off the removable range parts and place them back in their proper positions on the stovetop. Congrats, you're done cleaning!
Cleaning is a necessary chore, but it doesn't have to be hard. Clean your gas range in no time by following these conveniently organized steps. If your gas appliance has smoke or fire damage, contact a trusted fire restoration company to discuss your options.
