When cleaning we try to get every crack, crevice, and corner of our furniture and countertops, but have you ever thought of how much dirt builds up in lamps, on your lights, and on the shades that cover them? It could vary from light to light, but not only dirt builds up in them, but also other materials such as bugs and cobwebs can gather and collect between the spaces.
Clean lights not only shine brighter but also give you a moment to inspect the light. You want to make sure nothing is burnt, overheated, or melted, which are the main reason fires start from incandescent lights. Whatever area you start to clean, make sure the light is turned off, and it had the chance to cool down before you lay your hands on it.
Time to Clean
As we know there are many different types of lights. For example, you have the average above the stove light, fan lights, lamps, standing lamps, and outdoor lights. You’ll want to grab glass or window cleaner and wipe them down while using a duster or rag to get in the shade and corners of where the light gets tightened in. Many areas around the light bulb can make good places for bugs to hang out.
The main reason fires from lamps start is due to the incandescent light melting into the socket causing the strip to melt and start sparks. When you clean bulbs regularly this decreases the chance of a fire. It gives you the chance to notice something is wrong with the light bulb or socket.
Taking the time to clean your lights will help your home shine brighter and keep your family safe!
