How can I maintain my LED Grow Light?

To ensure that your LED Grow Light lasts as long as possible, it is important to keep your lamp clean and fresh. We recommend cleaning your lamp every two to three months. As a result, the LED grow light will work with maximum efficiency and it is also a good time to replace or repair any defects in a timely manner. Below we describe a number of methods to clean your lamp.

First of all, it is important to always handle the lamp with care. Especially when it comes to a lamp that is still under warranty. The most obvious rule, don't drop the lamp.

Below are a few more:

  • Do not disassemble the product. (unless outside warranty and with the necessary electronics knowledge)
  • Do not store any modules/circuit boards in a dusty environment.
  • Make sure no circuit boards bend and try not to touch the LED resin.
  • Handle the LEDs and the circuit boards with care, especially with sharp objects such as screwdrivers.
  • Do not touch the internal components while the lamp is in operation, you can get a serious shock to get. Also, do not pull any cables when the lamp is on, as this can destroy components.

Compressed air

After a few months you will see that dust/plant particles/insects have entered your lamp. Now LED grow lights will not attract very many insects, it is still disastrous for the operation of your lamp. You can easily get these particles out by using a can of compressed air. You can do this without taking the lamp apart, spray the air well through the lamp and also take the fans with you at the same time. Of course, first switch off the lamp and remove the plug from the socket.

Glass cleaner/all-purpose cleaner

If your LED Grow Light is equipped with glass lenses or a glass panel, you can clean them with glass cleaner or all-purpose cleaner. You clean the lamp with a cloth on which you have sprayed some glass cleaner. Wipe the dirt off the surface and allow it to dry before reconnecting the lamp. You can also clean the fixture in the same way, but make sure that you do not use any cleaning products that contain chlorethylene or acetone, as these ingredients cause the LEDs to deteriorate more quickly.

Checking your lamp is done quickly because with this checklist you can extend the life of your LED Grow Light.

  • Regularly check for dust particles and insects.
  • Do not use cleaning agents containing harmful substances. (such as chloroethylene or acetone)
  • Do not expose the lamp to water, always make sure that the lamp is completely dry when you switch on the lamp. (not sure? Leave the lamp off for a while so that any water can evaporate)
  • Do not hang any objects/tools on the lamp, as this may exceed the carrying capacity.
  • Always switch off the lamp and remove the plug from the socket before cleaning the lamp.

We hope that these cleaning tips will contribute to an even longer lifespan of our LED Grow Lights so that you can enjoy your plants even longer.
