Clean light fixtures allow you to create the desired ambiance. Prioritize safety by ensuring that all bulbs are cool and the power is turned off before cleaning. Locate the room’s fuse box and switch it to the off position.
Clean the Lightbulbs While Cleaning the Light Fixtures
If you’re going to clean your light fixtures, it would be wise to clean the bulbs too. Use a dry microfiber cloth and ensure the room’s power is off.
Carefully unscrew the lightbulbs and wipe them down with the microfiber cloth. Remember to screw the bulbs back in and turn the power on before leaving the room.
Dust Regularly for Easy Cleaning
Regular dusting is incredibly beneficial in the long run. Add it to your cleaning routine for every room.
How to Clean Light Fixtures
You only need basic materials, such as a glass cleaner, a microfiber cloth or paper towels, and a ladder. The process may vary depending on the type of light fixture, but most can be cleaned with these materials.
Some light fixtures may require disassembly for proper cleaning, such as a glass dome which can be removed by unscrewing the screw at the top or bottom and then cleaned with glass cleaner. Recessed lighting can be dusted, and their bulbs cleaned.
You must decide if you want to disassemble a chandelier before you clean it. If you dismantle it, take multiple photos from different angles to help reassemble it.
If not disassembling, be prepared to spend a lot of time on a ladder. The crystals of chandeliers can be cleaned with glass cleaner, but it will take more time.
