Business signage and graphics are likely to experience wear and tear as well as “brand dating” without regular updates and maintenance. Signs can not only get weathered and eroded but may also have outdated font types, imagery, and faded coloring. However, routine and frequent maintenance is a great way to ensure that your signage remains intact and reflects your business’s brand.
Focus on electrical signage for new bulbs and cleaning
Electrical signage for businesses require a good amount of attention to ensure that you are maximizing visibility of your sign. Make sure you are changing out bulbs, checking wires, inspecting power and outlets for damage, and frequently cleaning the sign on top of this.
Frequent inspections are the best way to check for any other electrical signage issues or deterioration, especially when your business operates in a setting that has seasonal weather like snow or rain.
Frequent weekly cleaning and deep cleanings both keep signs looking fresh
Clean your signage weekly to avoid the build up from dust, dirt, pollens, and other particles that could accumulate on your signage. If signs are left unattended then it may cause permanent damage to your sign. Also use materials based on the damage, like graffiti cleaner for any unwanted graffiti drawn on or simple industry-grade soap and paper towels.
Deep cleanings once a month can also help your sign looking fresh for customers that walk in and out that help eliminate hard-to-remove materials that build up on your sign. Clean not only your images and lettering but also see if you need to re-paint or refurbish signage images and colors.
Be thorough but careful with window decals and vinyl lettering
Vinyl lettering and window decals, along with related graphics, require careful attention. Use mild and non-abrasive specialty cleaners so you can effectively clean signage but without wearing down the lettering. Hand wash any window graphics and lettering to avoid any adhesive materials from peeling off.
Upgrade any outdated or overly damaged signs by hiring a business signage professional
Businesses may need to upgrade or get a brand new sign if their current design is outdated or too damaged to properly fix by hand.
A new sign is sometimes the least frustrating and expensive option when trying to maintain any type of signage or graphics that are beyond repair. A significant storm, accident, or hazard may have deteriorated your signage beyond repair even if you take great care of it. When that happens, your best option is usually having an expert build you a new sign that reflects your core brand in a compelling way that is made from industry-grade materials.
