Did you know that compact fluorescent light bulbs use at least two-thirds less energy than standard incandescent bulbs, to provide the same amount of light, at last up to ten times longer than standard bulbs? If you replace one regular light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb, you will save at least thirty dollars in energy costs over the life of the bulb.
But did you also know that fluorescent light illuminates brighter than incandescent light? With that said, a fluorescent bulb will only be as good as it is clean. Meaning, if the light is dirty, it won't illuminate as well. Follow these simple cleaning tips when cleaning your fluorescent lights to make sure that they are lighting your way the best they can.
Since lighting attracts bugs, dirt, and dust, they need to be cleaned often. Most people never think to clean their light bulbs when they clean house, but it is a good idea to schedule regular light bulb cleaning into your housecleaning schedule. Here are some tips:
Replace the bulbs and then replace the bowls or light covers. If the covers have water spots after you wash them, wipe them to crystal clarity with Windex and a soft cloth. Make sure you tighten the holding screws sufficiently, but do not over tighten since doing so may crack the glass covers.
