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 you not handled properly and the chandelier frame can be ruined if you aren’t careful. Remember to clean off fingerprints after hanging the texture or changing bulbs.
