With the dark nights now closing in and people beginning to think towards Christmas (I know sorry it is still some weeks away) we find that we get more enquiries from customers asking for advice on how to clean their chandeliers.
This is a subject that we have covered before sometimes it is helpful to revisit past posts as they can get hidden away.
If you do have any mishaps whilst cleaning or restoring your chandelier please contact us so that we can assist.
Before you start make sure that you have turned off the electric supply to your light fitting and that everyone knows that you are working on the chandeliers.
Put down some dust sheets or something similar just in case you drop a piece and if possible move other furniture out of the way.
DO NOT turn the chandelier move your ladder around the chandelier to clean it, turning the chandelier may unscrew it!
If you are not using a commercially available chandelier cleaning solution then clean your chandelier crystals in the same way you would clean your crystal glasses, warm soapy water.
If you are undressing your chandelier (taking all the crystals off) to clean them away from the chandelier take some photos to assist when you come to redress the chandelier (rehang the crystals).
DO NOT put your chandelier crystals in the dishwasher!
Why not revitalise your chandelier by replacing the candle tubes, these also get dirty and begin to show the signs of age Replacement candle tubes
