How Does Crystal Palace Lighting Clean Light Fixtures?
Dirty light fixtures can lessen the light amount a room receives while using the same amount of energy and lower the lifespan of light bulbs. Light fixtures soften and spread the light from light bulbs to illuminate the entire room, but they are also magnets for dirt, bugs, cobwebs, and dust. At Crystal Palace Lighting, we provide cleaning lighting fixtures services with warming and welcoming glow for our customers based on some effective methods:
Considering safety matters
The first tip to clean light fixtures and light bulbs is considering safety. First, the bulbs themselves should be cool; hot bulbs may explode when touched. Therefore, Crystal Palace Lighting has to make sure the power source is switched off or unplugged before we start cleaning. Moreover, when we are working on fixtures with right cleaning solutions, we have to cut turn off the power to the room. We also have to make sure to know how to operate our circuit breaker or fuse box before attempting this.
Gathering the best materials
In prior to cleaning fixtures, we make sure that we have the right tools on hand. The basic tool that we use is a dry microfiber cloth. We never use a terry material cloth since it can scratch the surfaces of the fixture. Yet a microfiber is an ideal for picking up dirt.
Checking the power
We never clean the lighting fixture with power on to avoid electrical hazards. The switch should be off, the breaker also should be shut to off, and the bulb itself should be completely cooled prior to cleaning.

Taking care of water solutions
While most fixtures can be cleaned with the use of a microfiber cloth, we always pay more attention to the light fixture, especially if it has not been cleaned in a long time. The best cleaning solution we follow is to mix a mild cleaner like dish soap with warm water. We never use water or cleaners near electrical components or wiring to avoid any damage. We at Crystal Palace Lighting also make sure that the fixture cover dries thoroughly prior to it being placed back on the fixture. Aside from the fixture head itself, we never use water on bulbs, as most bulbs only require the occasional wiping down with a microfiber cloth to remove any dirt buildup.
Checking the hardware to avoid safety hazards
Once we notice that the fixture is already clean and completely dry, we manage to replace it back over the lamps. We always make sure to fasten any hardware to keep it in place to avoid any safety hazards.
