Chandelier Cleaning Tips

When people discover our products, some of the first questions they ask is how easy is it to keep our chandeliers clean and if we have any chandelier cleaning tips, will the branches break during shipping or cleaning, and is a wood chandelier a fire hazard. Our answers to those questions are: cleaning couldn’t be easier, keep reading to learn more! Our fixtures are surprisingly sturdy and resilient and we take great care to ensure to branches or twigs will be damaged in shipping, and we have never had an issue with them breaking during cleaning. And of course our fixtures aren’t a fire hazard, we couldn’t sell them if they were (learn more about how our chandeliers become UL certified here)! At the end of the day, cleaning our fixtures if easier than many other types of chandeliers, such as crystal or brass!

First things first – how often do you clean your existing lighting? If you answered once or twice a year, then you’re spot on, as that is what most cleaning companies recommend. Cleaning anything once or twice a year isn’t a huge time commitment. And with our branch chandeliers, a vacuum, dust wand, or even canned air will easily remove dust from the branches. That’s a lot easier than having to individually wipe down and shine crystal pieces, or hand polish a brass or silver chandelier. And despite what you may think, the branches and twigs on our fixtures are very sturdy and do not break easily, so they can be cleaned just like any other light fixtures.

Please follow these chandelier cleaning tips to maintain our products’ original quality:

Dust Wand

Whether your Wish Designs piece is painted or natural hickory wood, a dust wand is a simple way to keep your lighting clean. Simply run the dust wand over, around, and through the branches to keep them looking as good as new.

Canned Air

While the twigs may look fragile, they are actually quite resilient. However, if you are still concerned about damaging a branch canned air is a gentle and effective option.


Another great way to clean your lighting is with an appropriate vacuum attachment, just be sure to navigate branches carefully.

What is a chandelier? A chandelier; also known as girandole, candelabra lamp, or least commonly suspended lights is a branched ornamental light fixture designed to be mounted on ceilings or walls. Chandeliers are often ornate, and normally use incandescent light bulbs, though some modern designs also use fluorescent lamps and recently LEDs.
