Every chandelier is different. Without seeing a picture or video of your chandelier we cannot truly understand what is involved in cleaning or working on it. Please text or email us a pic or vid of your chandelier(s). Please go to our contact page for more details.
What area do you service?
Any city in the following Southern California counties: Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Diego County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, Santa Barbara County & Ventura County. And we have and will service out-of-state projects if the price and timing is right.
How would you clean my chandelier?
Every chandelier is different. Some chandeliers should be cleaned in place, others should be partially taken apart and cleaned. Some chandeliers can be cleaned with a good amount of moisture, some cannot have but a few drops. Some soaps are appropriate for certain glass surfaces but not for others. Beware of companies that tout direct spraying as the way to clean all chandeliers or, conversely, that every chandelier piece needs to be taken apart (perhaps needlessly bending the metal pins that hold the crystals to the frame) in order to achieve a thorough clean. Infrequently, full spraying might be beneficial, as might complete disassembly (as with many Murano glass chandeliers)- but these instances would be exceptions. The spectrum of decorative lighting's shapes and materials is becoming more varied everyday- and so are the methods for cleaning. A competent company will first assess your particular chandelier's construction and then lay out the best course of cleaning action. The process must be affective, but also safe for one's employees and for you and your chandelier.
How often should I have my chandelier cleaned?
One has to consider how often his or her windows and/or doors are open, how often one cooks, which room the light fixture is located in, and how dirty or salty the air around one's house or building is. All that being said, in our experience, most frequencies should land somewhere near semi-annual to annual for residences and hotels and quarterly to semi annual for restaurants, retail shops, and salons (open doors and heavy foot traffic).
Do you only clean and work on light fixtures?
Sometimes our chandelier customers will ask us to polish a metal art piece or a metal faucet handle or to change a ceiling light bulb, but yes, light fixture work is the only type of work we advertise for. We clean chandeliers, we repair them, we crate them, we install and remove them. We do not sell chandeliers or chandelier products as we are only on the service side (though we have great contacts in fabrication, manufacturing, sales, etc.). We do not clean windows or mirrors or ceilings or ducts. Many window cleaning, maid, and janitorial companies will attempt to clean easy chandeliers and turn away hard-to-access or hard-to-clean fixtures, and yet these "easy" light fixtures may get them in over their heads. Even small chandeliers can be tricky and expensive to repair. Added to that is the fact that many cleaning companies have a high turn-over rate. Thus, the person they send out will likely have relatively little experience and will not know how to clean a chandelier safely (which is most important). We clean chandeliers day in and day out (year round) and on high access equipment. Our team has cleaned more chandeliers than most people have ever even seen.
Yes! We have worker's compensation to cover employee injury and we have liability insurance to cover damage to your property. This is one important reason why hotels and HOA's trust us to work on their expensive decorative lighting. We are properly insured. Many cleaning companies (such as maids, window cleaners and construction cleanup companies) have a form of insurance, but often their insurance will not cover work on expensive chandeliers. Note, too, that not all worker's compensation policies will cover high ladder work. You can rest easy knowing that Witherspoon is fully and correctly insured.
