3 Tips For Taking Care of Your Neon Business Sign

If you have recently purchased a custom neon sign for your restaurant or retail store, it’s important that you know how to take care of it properly. A sign should always be neat, bright, and in good condition.

This way it will convey the high standards of your brand and attract more customers. A sign that is broken, old, or smudged, may do more damage than good.

Here are 3 simple tips for taking care of your neon business sign:

1. Keep It Out of Reach Of Your Customers

Many people are attracted to, and curious about, neon signs. So those signs that are hung low enough for customers to touch are in danger of becoming damaged. If enough people handle your business sign, then it is bound to break.

To keep your new custom neon business sign safe, talk to your Calgary lighting company about hanging it well out of reach of your customers.

2. Dust the Neon Tubes

Every month you should clean the dust off your neon sign. Cleaning it regularly will help to look bright and make any future cleanings quick and simple. To clean your sign you will need a:

  • Feather duster
  • A small and stiff paint brush
  • A vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment

ALWAYS TURN OFF THE SIGN when you begin cleaning. Brush each neon tube with the feather duster and use the paintbrush to get into the smaller cracks and crevices. Once the tubes are clean, carefully vacuum the sign.

3. Keep Your Sign Plugged in All The Time

While it may seem counter-intuitive, the truth is that it’s best for your neon sign if you leave it plugged in all the time. Why? The sign’s power transformation will wear out much sooner if your sign is continually turned on and off every day. Since neon signs use electrodes rather than heated filaments, they don’t get hot and won’t pose a fire danger.

Concerned about energy costs? Neon lights use very little power to operate and restarting their power transformer uses more electricity than lighting the sign for many hours.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
