Maintaining wrought iron chandeliers

There is one good reason for you to become a proud owner of wrought iron chandeliers - they are easy to clean and maintain. Occasionally, wrought iron chandeliers require detailed cleaning. All you need is a soft cloth, water and mild detergent solution. Dip the cloth in the solution, squeeze out the extra water and wipe it all around. Baking soda solution can also be used instead of detergent.


Once you are done cleaning with wet cloth, it should be wiped with a dry and soft cloth. Post cleaning, shield the iron part with liquid wax coat for extra protection. Do not hang wrought iron chandeliers in humid places as it causes oxidation of iron.


Though cleaning is an occasional affair, wrought iron chandeliers should be maintained on a regular basis. Once a week, dusting with a vacuum cleaner is sufficient to maintain your wrought iron chandeliers. Remove the bulbs before you embark on the cleaning. After dusting, you may need to wipe the chandelier fixtures with a lightly dampened lint-free cloth.

Wipe it free of moisture with another similar dry cloth. You can use clear wax to erase rust spots or small nicks. Use an Emory paper or sandpaper to remove the rust patches. These simple steps will retain the shine and spark of the chandeliers for the times to come.


Brass chandeliers

If you are eyeing a brass chandelier over a wrought iron one, you still have to follow the same check points, before purchase. But as for the cleaning never use detergents or solutions that may lead to corrosion. Brass chandeliers need an elaborate polish with the solution that is intended for brass.
