Ambiente Luce lighting products are extremely durable, virtually maintenance-free, and require nothing more than occasional cleaning in order to retain their attractive appearance and provide many years of reliable service. Outdoor lights such as wall-mounted, pillar-mounted, pole-mounted and hanging lanterns, benefit from being sprayed with a hosepipe and, if necessary, washed from time to time to remove corrosive air-borne deposits such as industrial contaminants, bird droppings and salt. Standard Ambiente Luce lanterns are made from mild steel which is hot-dip galvanized to prevent rust and finished by way of an attractive hand-painted colour. Outside lights can also, on request, be produced in aluminium rather than mild steel.
Applying a little Vaseline or Q20 (spray-on oil) to the metal screw on the light bulbs helps to prevent corrosion and the bulb becoming bonded to the socket and consequently difficult to remove. Indoor lights such as chandeliers, feature lights and wall sconces require occasional dusting and a wipe with a damp cloth. Crystals can be washed in soapy water and then rinsed in clean water to keep their sparkle.
