How to Clean your Gas Range
A gas range is the preferred appliance of cooks because it provides a more uniform cooking method than an electric range. A bonus is the fact that it heats up immediately. The disadvantage of a gas stove is that it is more complicated to clean. Dried food should be cleaned up quickly before they create a smoke smell. You can become a pro at cleaning your stove by following a few simple instructions.
You just need a few simple materials to conduct a thorough range cleaning. Just grab dish soap, white vinegar, paper towels, and a clean scrub brush or a toothbrush.
To clean the stove, fill the kitchen sink with HOT, sudsy water using a few drops of dish soap. Remove the grates and burner caps from the gas range and soak them in the water. After they have soaked a bit, scrub them with a toothbrush to remove any stubborn debris. Brush loose crumbs off the stovetop with a paper towel and spray the entire area with a solution of one part vinegar to one part water. Let It sit for a couple minutes. Wipe the area with clean paper towels. Make sure you clean the knobs and the back panel also. If dried bits of food or debris remain, squirt a drop of soap onto the toothbrush and give it a good scrub. Wipe the area dry with paper towels. Remove the burner caps and scrub them with sudsy water. Dry them completely.
Once you have cleaned up all the crumbs and debris, put all the parts back together. Repeat this routine every month to maintain a clean, shiny stove. If you ever suspect smoke or fire damage, call SERVPRO of South Kenosha County to conduct a fire damage assessment.
