Clean and Care

An investment in quality lighting can be better served if these products are maintained properly. In order to get the most out of your lighting fixtures, simply follow these care and cleaning guidelines. This document is divided by brand, so be careful with the way you use it and always know from which brand is the piece that you are purchasing.

1. Luxxu

Large chandeliers must be maintained by experienced professionals who know how to take them apart, to clean each part and to place everything back correctly. The most important thing to remember when you are cleaning your chandelier is to treat it gently! Crystals can be scratched and damaged easily if not handled properly and the chandelier frame can be ruined if you are not careful. Remember to clean your fingerprints after hanging the fixture or changing bulbs.

1.1. Cleaning Frequency

Small and médium-sized chandeliers should be dusted regularly in order to avoid more integral cleaning procedures. The cleaning frequency will depend on where the lighting fixture is. Entryway and near kitchen chandeliers tens to need more frequent cleaning. A rule of thumb is to clear the lighting every 12 months.  

1.2. Metal Fixtures

Metal fixtures are protected with a coat of clear UV varnish to keep the finish from tarnishing, so brass polish is not necessary. Damage to this protection coating from harsh cleaning products may lead to a tarnished finish. Do not use damp cloths, abrasive cleaners or water on the metal as these may damage the surface. Dust regularly with a soft dry cloth.

1.3. Crystal Fixtures

Wipe the crystal surface and all the accent pieces with a clean, soft cloth on a regular basis to maintain the brilliance of the crystals. Always use soft, cotton cloths. Paper towels and disposable dusting cloths can scratch the crystals. Dry cleaning is the way of cleaning your lighting fixture from dust using a clean and soft cloth.

1.4. Wet Cleaning

You need to prepare a place to set the crystals and light bulbs before you remove them. If the structure of the fixture allows the crystal suspensions to be taken out, that will simplify the cleaning, just carefully wash them in cool water with special cleaning agents for crystals, then dry it with a soft cloth. Or put on a pair of cotton gloves soaked in methylated spirits and rub the crystal and ornaments gently. The spirits will evaporate very quickly, so soak your gloves into the spirits often while cleaning. Be careful not to clean around the metal fixtures. If it is impossible to take out the crystal suspensions, then carefully and without pressure, wipe the crystals with a wet and soft cloth. Careful care and compliance with these easy LUXXU recommendations will help you enjoy the beauty of lamps, crystal chandeliers, wall lamps for long years.

1.5. Marble Fixtures

Marble is a porous material. It is a soft stone susceptible to etching and staining if you don’t protect it carefully. Avoid acid solutions coming into contact with marble, applies to cleaning products as well (vinegar, lemon juice or other cleaners containing acid). Wiping the surfaces with warm, sudsy water and a nonabrasive sponge or soft cloth is the best method for cleaning, but will not remove etching or stains that have had time to permeate the surface.

The polished metals should be cleaned with a damp cloth. Do not use ointments or commercial waxes directly on the materials as they may scratch or damage the finish. The products we recommend are Brasso, Simichrome or Flitz. These can be used without inflicting damage on our products unless the surface has a wax coating, these polishes will remove the wax isolating the metal.

4.3. Timber and lacquers

Woods and lacquered bring depth and beauty to the products.

Even being protected with varnish and other finishes they are susceptible to erosion. The items should only be cleaned with a soft cloth. Don’t use commercial ointments or waxes. Wood and lacquer should not be close to heaters or air conditioners to avoid excessive drying or exposure to moisture. Avoid extreme humidity changes at home, as extremely dry air can cause damage to the wood and crack the lacquer. Don’t place hot or damp objects directly on the wood. Rubber and plastics placed on the woods can also damage the material. We recommend stained or dirty wood, as well as lacquered, being restored and recovered by professionals.

Glass and crystal can be cleaned by wiping with a soft damp cloth or glass cleaner with no additives. Apply glass cleaner to a soft cloth rather than directly on to the fixture to avoid overspray that may damage other finishes.
