How To Clean Your Chandeliers – Safely
Chandelier looks elegant and provides royal touch to any living room. A chandelier is known to reflect royalty in every sense but only until it shines and shimmers like new. Over a period of time dust settles on crystals, bulbs and frame making it look dull. Like everything else needs cleaning, chandeliers too have to be cleaned once in a year. But how to do it is a hustle because its complex hanging pattern makes the cleaning work difficult.
Dusty and grimy crystal chandelier cleaning is not very difficult but for that you have to be very precise in your action. You will require certain things to accomplish the task. So let’s look at what you will need:
- A step ladder
- Drop cloth or pad or thick blanket
- White gloves or soft lint free cloths
- Over the counter chandelier cleaning solution
- Needle-nose pliers
Plan Before You Go Cleaning
Place the ladder in such a way that you are able to reach at every part of the chandelier. Make sure all the legs of ladder are firmly on ground to avoid any fall. Now lay down the thick drop cloth or blanket to prevent any fall or drop of crystal pieces or bulbs.
Ways To Clean Your Chandelier:
Basically there are two ways you can clean the chandeliers.
- Cleaning with crystal on
- Cleaning with crystal off
Let’s proceed further to elaborate both ways about how to clean a chandelier expertly:
- Cleaning with crystal on: First turn off the light or disconnect the electricity of chandelier and let the bulbs cool. Climb the ladder and cover the bulbs with a plastic cover like a sandwich bag and tie rubber bands around the bases so that water doesn’t get inside the bulb socket. Now that everything is in place you can spray the chandelier cleaning solution or a dish wash solution. Carefully sprinkle the solution on every part of the chandelier and let the drops fall off the ground. Once the solution removes the dust from the crystals, bulb and frame of the chandelier then with the help of a soft lint free cloth start to wipe every part. This will take time but worth the effort as at the end of it the chandelier will again start to sparkle with brilliance.
- Cleaning with crystal off: Turn off the electricity or power supply of the chandelier. This step is a lengthy one and requires you to take off the crystals from the frame. If you are not sure whether you will be able to reassemble the crystals again then it would be better to take pictures of the assembled lamp from every angle. Now unfasten each crystal piece with a needle-nose pliers or similar tool and place it in a sink filled with mild dish soap. Let the crystal pieces soak in dish soap for a while and in the meantime clean the frame, bulbs and other parts of the chandelier. Once you are done with wiping other parts for the chandelier take out the crystal pieces from the sink and wipe them with an absorbent cloth and let them dry. Now put the crystal pieces back in place using the pictures you took to make sure they are put back in the exact placement from before.
Once you are done with the cleaning turn on the power and admire your work.
