Regular cleaning

  1. Dusting: Dust and dirt can build up on lamps and light sources, reducing their efficiency and lifespan. Use a soft cloth or a special brush to gently remove dust from lampshades and light sources.
  2. Clean lampshades: Make sure to clean lampshades regularly to ensure the light is evenly distributed. Use a mild soap solution to remove dirt and grease.
  3. Use water with caution: When cleaning light fittings, it’s important to avoid water as it can damage electrical components. Use a slightly damp cloth and dry with a dry cloth.

Light source maintenance

  1. Replace defective light sources: Make sure to replace light sources that no longer work. This not only ensures consistently good light quality, but also prevents overloading the remaining light sources.
  2. Upgrade to LED: Consider upgrading to LED lights if you haven’t already done so. LED lights are more energy efficient and have a longer lifespan, reducing maintenance needs.
  3. Regular checks: Regularly check your lights to make sure they are working properly and are not flickering or changing colour temperature.

Electrical maintenance

  1. Safety check: Make sure to have a qualified electrician regularly check your store’s electrical systems, especially if you notice issues like flickering lights or switches that switch off.
  2. Clean switches and sockets: Dust and dirt can also build up on switches and sockets, which can lead to poor connections. Therefore, it’s a good idea to regularly clean these gently with a dry cloth.

Lighting planning

  1. Lighting plan: Consider having a lighting plan that takes into account natural light and how it changes throughout the day and seasons. This can help optimise the use of artificial lighting.
  2. Automation: Consider lighting control systems that automatically adjust brightness based on the time of day or the presence of people in the room. This can extend the life of your light sources and reduce energy consumption. You can also choose a solution where you can easily adjust the brightness and colour temperature of your store lighting yourself. This way you can quickly adjust the light to suit the mood you want to create.

By following these maintenance tips, you can ensure that your store lighting is always in top shape, contributing to a welcoming atmosphere and a positive customer experience.

Remember, well-maintained lighting is not only important for aesthetics, but also for the safety of your store.
