    Have a cleaning routine to do periodically. Just wiping dust away is enough for weekly cleaning. But every 2 to 3 months top you should do a deep cleaning. Removing all dirt and residues, while checking for signals of major damage or misfunctions. To do this, use a non-abrasive cotton cloth, a gentle brush for corners and reliefs, and proper soap. Since every sign is different. Ask your provider what is a suitable soap option.

    – Wet electronic components if it has them.
    – Brushing too hard, taking away paint, design, or braille lettering.

    – Use scrub brushes or steel wool.
    – Apply strong cleaning detergents.
    – Air dry or leave moisture.
    – Pressure wash or steam clean.
    – Leave detergent to dry on the sign.
  • While exhibiting, watch for:
    The location and conditions; optimal cleaning frequency will be closely related to sign location and area conditions.
    For instance, outside signs are exposed directly to weather and natural corrosive agents, like tree resins, animal droppings, and pollen. Therefore, they are crafted with the most resistant materials, and they require more frequent cleanings.
    On the other hand, the area’s conditions could have a huge impact on sign health. Capital cities’ signs may need more frequent cleaning due to air pollution. Or beachside signs might need sooner a restoration thanks to their high salt concentration environment. Make sure to talk about these details with your sign provider.
