How to Clean Fluorescent Light Fixtures with Plastic/Glass Lenses and Diffusers

This method utilizes a bucket and sponge or trigger sprayer and sponge. An all-purpose detergent such as Unitex Daily Clean is the most common cleaner; however, if there is a lot of grease and oil present, a stronger degreaser may be needed.

Directions:

  1. Remove furniture and/or cover with drop cloths.
  2. Dilute Unitex Daily Clean at 2 oz per gallon of water. If using a trigger sprayer, place diluted solution into spray bottle.
  3. Sweep the ceiling and hanging fixtures of cobwebs and dirt.
  4. Remove the diffuser/lens cover from the fixture. Replace any lamps that have burned out.
  5. With the trigger sprayer or a damp dry cleaning sponge wash the metal parts of the fixture, then wipe dry.
    BE SURE THE ELECTRIC CURRENT IS SHUT OFF to this fixture.
  6. Clean the diffuser/lens cover by spraying it with the trigger sprayer or wash it with solution from the bucket. Be careful of any sharp edges.
  7. Replace the covers.
  8. When the entire bank of light fixtures has been cleaned, turn the bank on to see if all lights are working
