3 Tips for Taking Care Of Your Neon Business Sign
You should know how to properly maintain a custom neon sign. Signs should always be in good shape and kept brightly lit.
This will make your brand more visible and attract more customers. A sign that is damaged, worn, or smudged could cause more harm than good.
These are just a few tips to help you take care of your led neon signs.
1. Keep it out of reach of customers
Neon signs are a popular choice for many people. Signs that are low enough to be seen by customers can easily get damaged. Your sign is bound to be damaged if it is handled by too many people.
For your neon business sign to be safe, consult your Calgary lighting provider about hanging it high and out of the reach of your customers.
2. Dust the Neon Tubes
Each month, clean your neon sign. Regularly cleaning your sign will keep it shining bright and make future cleanings easier. You will need the following tools to clean your sign:
- Feather duster
- A small and stiff paintbrush
- A vacuum cleaner fitted with a brush attachment
ALWAYS TURN OFF YOUR SIGN BEFORE YOU GET TO CLEANING. Use the feather duster for each tube to clean and then use the paintbrush to reach into smaller cracks or crevices. After the tubes are clean, vacuum them carefully.
3. Keep your Sign Connected All the Time
This may seem counter-intuitive. However, it’s better for your neon signs if you keep them plugged in all the time. Why? You need to keep your sign on and off throughout the day. This will reduce its power transformation. Neon signs are not hot due to the use of neon filaments.
Are you concerned about energy costs? A neon light uses very little power, and restarting its power transformer requires more electricity than lighting a sign for several hours.
