Cleaning BROKIS lights
As with all products, BROKIS lights require periodic cleaning. Dust, grease, and filminess affect the visual quality of any item made of glass.
It is in the interest of the user to maintain the singular appearance of the lights.
This can only be achieved through regular cleaning. When neglected, the cleaning process becomes unnecessarily time consuming. The cleaning interval depends on the environment the lights are installed in and is primarily influenced by humidity levels, temperature stability, and the amount of dust in the air.
BROKIS applies the highest possible quality standards in manufacturing its lights.
Prior to shipping, each light undergoes several quality controls and stages of cleaning. Lights may require additional cleaning as a result of transportation, storage, and the amount of time that passes between packing in our plant and subsequent unpacking by the client. Therefore, we recommend cleaning the lights prior to installation.
Recommended cleaning methods
When cleaning lights from any of our collections, we recommend first uninstalling them according to the instructions in the installation manual and then securing the glass components against mechanical damage.
The glass must first be rinsed in hot water, with a dilution of a dish-detergent or a de-greaser (such as ammonia or vinegar) used to remove all foreign particles, dust, and grease. The glass must then be thoroughly rinsed with running hot water. Eventually repeat this basic treatment, if necessary. The glass is then thoroughly dried with a paper towel.
Do not use mineral spirits, highly concentrated thinners, or other substances not intended for use on glass surfaces. Also: do not use products, containing silicones – since they will rapidly attract more dust and grease.
