I was called by a client in Santa Clarita, California. They were selling their home and moving to Colorado. After the Realtor checked each room of their beautiful home, she requested a huge laundry list of repairs that needed to be addressed immediately. This job was to clean up all the outside front yard deck lamps.
This post shows the seven steps to repairing and cleaning the lamps.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the lamp that needs to be cleaned. Fig.2 shows the lamp shade was removed.

Step 2: Fig.3 shows the lamp shade was removed for cleaning. This lamp should be washed using dish soap in the laundry or kitchen sink and dried using a lint free cloth. Fig.4 shows the lamp bulb was removed and will be replaced with a fluorescent bulb to save electrical energy.
