Do You Need to Clean Your Landscape Lights?

Posted on February 18th, 2016 by Jupiter Tequesta

Because landscape lighting is constantly exposed to the elements, it’s important that you clean your fixtures regularly. Tidying up your outdoor lights will help them shine brighter and keep them working their best.

Follow these tips to get your landscape lights sparkling again:

1. Shut off all power sources before washing electrical pieces

2. Give the bulbs time to cool before you begin

3. Clear away any dirt, leaves and debris

4. Bring any removable parts inside and wash them with a mild dish soap

5. Rinse away the suds with warm water

6. Dry with a soft cotton cloth or any other lint-free fabric

7. For lighting fixtures that can’t be removed, use a damp cloth to wipe away dust, dirt and debris

8. Again, dry with a soft, lint-free cloth

9. Dust off any interior areas

10. Use a soft bristled brush to remove grime from crevices in and around decorative accents

11. Polish metal elements to avoid rust or oxidation

Additional notes:

  • Follow manufacturer’s instructions for special light fixtures
  • Consider pruning back branches and boughs that may grow over your lighting over time
  • Inspect all cords for signs of deterioration, and fix all weak spots immediately
  • Call in the help of a professional if necessary
