The sign you choose or design and install for your business represents your company. It’s an investment, so we know how important it is that you take care of that investment. It’s one of the first things that potential customers see when they pass by your storefront, so they develop a first impression of your company before they even meet you or your employees. This is why maintaining your sign should be a priority!

So, how should you maintain your sign and keep it looking perfect? Here are a few tips:

  1. Clean your electrical signage. Inspect it regularly and have it cleaned out as frequently as possible. Both the interior and exterior should be kept clean. If you don’t know how to clean your electrical sign, hire somehow who knows how! A professional can open up your sign and inspect the interior before they clean it.
  2. Put shade over your sign. This will protect your sign from the elements like sun, rain, snow, and debris. You may even plant a tree near it for some natural shade. Buying something to shade your sign might seem like another investment, but it’s important to do so in order to protect your sign from damage.
  3. Take precautionary methods to protect your sign even more. You might coat your signs, which will prevent damage. You might also inspect the brackets that your sign is attached to. If the brackets seem loose or damaged, replace them as soon as possible. Hire a signage company if you’re worried about doing any of these things incorrectly.
  4. Replace the lettering on your sign. Whether you have an electrical sign or a traditional one, if the public can’t see the lettering on it, your sign is pointless. As soon as you notice your lettering is fading, replace it. The sooner the better. Possible future customers might not be interested in your business if they can’t read your sign!

These simple but effective measures will increase the longevity of your sign. We’re happy to help you however we can – let us do the heavy lifting for you.
