CLEANING GUIDE

Maintaining your lighting fixtures can increase their life markedly. By ensuring they are cleaned regularly means they will not only look better, they will also perform better.

PENDANTS, FLOOR AND TABLE LAMPS:

  • Before cleaning a lamp shade or fixture, disconnect the power source (turn off installed lights or unplug lamps from power outlets). Dust all fixtures lightly at least every two to three months with a feather or wool duster to keep them clean.
  • To clean glass shades and fixtures, apply a household glass cleaner to a soft cloth and wipe gently at least every three months.
  • To clean fabric shades, wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth or a feather duster.
 

CLEANING GUIDE

Crystal Chandeliers:

  • To thoroughly clean crystal chandeliers, individual crystal glass droplets should be removed. We recommend removing only a few droplets at a time to ensure they are replaced in the correct order.
  • Wipe the removed crystal glass pieces with a mild, soapy solution to clean, then wipe dry with a clean cloth.
  • Replace each cleaned and dried droplet back in its original place on the fixture.
  • Continue removing and cleaning the crystal parts before wiping down the metal body and arms. Move in small sections around the body of the chandelier until all parts are clean.
