At Signarama, we know that designing and installing your sign is only the first step. Regular sign maintenance is key to ensure your company’s signage investment keeps working for you as you always intended. Signs that are not properly illuminated or have damage send a negative message to potential customers. From replacing lights or burnt out tubes to repairing damage caused by the sun, dust, pollen, insects, grime, or pollution you can count on Signarama.
Below, we have broken down the most common types of damage and wear we see with outdoor signs as well as some steps you can take to make sure your sign continues to stand out to existing and potential customers.
- Burnt out bulbs or tubes typically, the first thing that happens to illuminated signage is a blown-out bulb or tube. While this is one of the easiest sign issues to spot, changing blown-out bulbs can be difficult for the average business owner. Finding the right bulbs, climbing a ladder or scaffold that is tall enough to reach the sign, determining which tools are needed, can be a difficult task to accomplish without the help of experienced sign experts. Be sure to have bulbs changed regularly to ensure this is done correctly and safely.
- Dirty signage from roadside grime and pollution to dust and residue, signage can become surprisingly filthy with time. Cleaning signage such as banner signs is fairly simple – a quick wipe down will do the trick. If your business has window or door graphics, show your attention to detail and take the time to clean these surfaces with a gentle cleaner on a daily basis, inside and outside. Other types of signs, like monument signs, may require more substantial cleaning such as pressure cleaning. If you have any questions about how to properly clean your signs or need to schedule a maintenance visit for your hard to reach signs, contact Signarama. Knowing how your business’s signage should be cleaned is important to ensure long-lasting signage.
- Dullness caused by sun damage. Sun damage is nearly impossible to avoid when the goal of outdoor signage is ultimate visibility. The extent of sun damage can be prevented by investing in signage that is protected with a UV laminate.
