Did you know that the recommended lighting level for outdoor activities and safety is 45 lumens per square yard? For reference, that’s the same level as a bright dining room. A typical entranceway lighting fixture is bright enough to read an address, but not to read a book.
Dust, dirt, and bugs can reduce light output by more than half if allowed to build up. Regular cleaning is needed to maintain brightness. Some lighting systems have lenses that need special care.
Materials such as plastic and acrylic scratch easily and can yellow. On top of that, you are probably doing your cleaning on a high ladder. If you are wondering how to clean outdoor light fixtures for your San Diego home, here are a few tips.
