Every SCHONBEK® product is of heirloom quality and will last for generations. To ensure it retains its brilliance and splendor for years to come, proper care and regular cleaning are necessary.
It is recommended that SCHONBEK products, and particularly their crystal trim, be lightly dusted with a feather or lambswool duster, or soft brush every two months, or whenever it appears dull or dusty. A thorough cleaning should be completed every six months.
Before cleaning a SCHONBEK product, first locate the fixture’s trim diagram. This will assist in replacing the crystal trim in its proper location after cleaning. Should a replacement trim diagram be required, please call 800-836-1892 to speak with a SCHONBEK customer service representative, who can provide a new diagram.
SCHONBEK recommends several different cleaning methods, depending on the type of fixture. Some fixtures can be cleaned with limited removal of crystal, while others must be completely untrimmed.
Place a soft towel or blanket directly beneath the fixture to limit the damage to both the crystal and the surface below the fixture, should a piece of crystal be dislodged during the cleaning process.
Extreme care must be taken around any electrical fixture. For personal safety and the safety of the product, be sure that the fixture has been turned off. Never rotate or spin the fixture as this can cause the fixture to lose support and fall. Instead, move around the fixture while cleaning.
