When the lights of the holidays come down, what do you do with all those beautiful LED floor lamps, lamp tables and beside tables? It can be difficult to know how best to store them while they are out of use. But it's important to make sure you follow some storage tips in order to keep your festive floor lamps in tip-top shape for years to come! Here are our top tips for maintaining and storing LED lights after the holidays:
1. Clean thoroughly before storage - Before packing away your floor lamp, it is important to give it a good clean. This will help remove any dust or dirt that may have built up on the bulb during its time being used as well as making sure there is no residue from the holiday decorations.
2. Unplug and wrap the wires - Be sure to unplug the floor lamp before packing away. Then, take extra care when wrapping up the wires so that they don't get tangled or damaged in storage.
3. Store floor lamps in a cool dry place - To help protect your floor lamps from condensation or dampness, store them in a cool, dry location like an attic or garage.
4. Store lamp tables and beside tables upright – Lamp tables and beside tables should be stored upright with their wiring facing down to prevent any damage due to heat generated by the lights themselves. This will also help prevent any dust accumulation on the wiring as well as avoiding accidental trips or falls if the floor lamp is knocked over.
By following these simple steps, you can be sure that your floor lamps, lamp tables and beside tables will be safe and in good condition for the next time you are ready to light up the holidays! With a little bit of love and care, your festive floor lamps will bring cheer year after year. Happy storing!
