For a professional and workable workspace, the lighting system must be in good working order.
Every business needs a maintenance manager or another competent worker who will ensure the correct maintenance and upkeep of your business lighting system. This is vital to every business that operates on a medium to large scale. If you run your business from home, then it is obvious that you can change the occasional light bulb when necessary. T&D Electrical service homes, small businesses and large corporations’ lighting needs.
CHECK THE LIGHT BULBS FIRST
The most obvious first point of action is the light bulbs. Whenever you have a lighting issue such as the light being very dim or flashing or not coming on, then you should check the light bulbs first. Check to see if the light bulb is blown or loose. This is most often the case. Most people are capable of changing a light bulb but if this does not resolve the issue, it’s best to call a professional electrician. There may be wiring that has come loose or burnt and will need replacing. T&D Electrical has certified professional electricians on standby ready to assist.
APPROPRIATE LIGHT BULBS
T&D Electrical has professional, certified electricians who can assist with all your lighting requirements. When it comes to changing a light bulb, it is quite simple, however, some light fixtures require professional assistance. LED bulbs are the most efficient and are longer lasting than regular light bulbs. It is not always a simple installation when it comes to fitting LED bulbs because you have to ensure that the fittings are suitable and line up with the LED bulb. The lighting fixture needs to be compatible with the LED bulb so call T&D Electrical to ensure that you have a safe and reliable lighting connection.
ANNUAL CLEANING OF LIGHT FIXTURES
It is important to clean your business light fixtures at least once a year if not more, depending on your business type. For example, if you owned a restaurant you may want to clean the light fixtures more regularly than other businesses because you have customers on your premises daily and they will notice the dirty light fixtures which can severely damage your business. A dirty or unkept business premise tells your customers that you don’t care about cleanliness, health issues, and customer service, it’s just the bottom line that you are concerned with. This will surely damage the future of your business. A dirty light fixture can also damage the light fixture and cause failure to the lighting system due to the build-up of dust and grime. Use a dry cloth to clean the inside of the light fixture and the surrounding area.
ANNUAL PERFORMANCE CHECKS
Lighting maintenance includes checking the performance of your lights annually. This is more than just making sure they work; this includes checking the transformers and drivers to prevent issues in the future. This is helpful to ensure that you can replace any faulty parts before they become serious or create a power failure or hazardous spark which could lead to a fire.
BUSINESS LIGHTING REPAIRS AND REPLACEMENTS
Maintaining your business lighting requires immediate repair or replacement of faulty or compromised lighting system components. Using an annual checklist will prevent major issues and continuous lighting in your business. It is always a good idea to have spare bulbs and certain fixtures available in case you need a quick fix and to avoid business interruptions.
