How do you keep a chandelier as clean as possible?


It is important to clean your chandelier. It is even better to keep your chandelier as clean as possible. There are various tips for keeping the chandelier as clean as possible:

1. Ventilate the room

Ventilate the room every day, because this prevents the accumulation of dirt and dust. Dirt and dust end up on the chandelier too, making it dull.

2. Clean the floor

Clean the floor weekly. Dirt on the floor can end up in the air and on your chandelier.

3. Avoid dirty air

A chandelier near the kitchen is not a good idea. It won't take long before the grease from cooking is on your chandelier. Smoking inside also produces deposits on your chandelier.

4. Dust your chandelier

Dust your chandelier once a week. Do it carefully with a feather duster. Possibly use a product to make your chandelier antistatic, so it attracts less dirt.
