Checklist for exterior building signs maintenance:
To ensure that your detergent doesn’t leave behind any residue or damage, rinse the sign well. To prevent water spots, dry the sign as soon as possible. You should also inspect the base, sign face, and letters for any damage. You can schedule an appointment with a technician from S & S Signs to repair any damage.
Your sign may be damaged by power washers that exceed 200 psi. Water should not be heated above 180 degrees. Avoid harsh chemicals, scrapers, and newspapers. These can scratch or pit your sign and cause it to become dull.
You need to choose the best location for interior signs. Signs should not be exposed to direct sunlight as this can cause discoloration, warping, and fading. Blinds can be used to filter direct sunlight through windows and doors if you need to place signs. Signage maintenance in interior buildings is easier than outside maintenance because of the weather.
You still have to clean them and inspect them often. You should inspect them for any splatters or spills, fingerprints, and other unsightly debris. If you own a convenience shop, for example, you must wipe down the signs at the food counters and soda fountains.
Interior signs are used to indicate which direction is in the doctor’s office. Every business should examine its customer flow and add signs as needed. Use warm water, mild dish soap, and soft cloths to clean acrylic or metal signs. Avoid commercial cleaners and glass cleaners as they can damage your signage and weaken sealants.
Turn off the power to your LED signs when they are not being used. This will extend their useful life and conserve energy.
