Crystal chandelier is beautiful and popular. It is widely used in hotels, restaurants and homes. There are some crystal chandeliers in your house more or less. When you see the same chandelier day in and day out sometimes it can come as a shock when you suddenly realize just how dirty the fitting has become. Good things need maintenance, and it is always awful and boring. But itís well worth if you want it look as good as new.
There are many frames and pendants which make of the chandelier. So first of all, you have to take the chandelier down from ceiling so that you donít need look up in hours cleaning it. And then tear down the pendants carefully. At the same time, you should take note of the removable things and put them in a diagram and make sure that you can have them arranged the right way. Also, think that the crystal chandelier is made of crystal materials so extra care would still be needed.
You might want to make use of soft materials, like cotton-made cloth, to avoid destroying its quality. You can use lukewarm water to get rid of dust and apply pH-balanced cleaning agents to get rid of those hard-to-remove stains and give it that magnificent sheen we want it to have. By the way, lukewarm water is good to our hands.
As for your crystal pendants, avoid simplifying the process by using your dishwasher for it. Warm water will only cause your crystals to fog up and takes up a lot of time and effort to remove. It's best to use tap water for it. Gently wipe it up using a soft cloth and let it sit to dry before installing it back on your chandelier.
This is a necessary task for many people especially because there are many things at risk. The furniture is delicate and handling it should be done the right way. There are many people who need to clean up and make sure that they keep the furniture in its proper condition.
Some furniture and lighting shops offer free maintenance for their crystal chandeliers. Instead of doing everything on your own, and inexperience will only lead to accidents that will compromise the beauty and quality of your chandelier; you might as well let a professional handle the job. It's true that you have to pay for the cost of cleaning up your crystal chandelier, but its well worth if you want it to look good as new.
