The most important thing a client can do to help lengthen the longevity of their new sign is regular cleaning maintenance. Though not a difficult thing to do most people tend to overlook the fact that signs, especially wood, need to be cleaned to help protect your business property and image. We recommend cleaning with mild soap and water once in the spring and again in the late fall just before the winter season. Over the winter months dust, dirt and especially salt build up on the sign surface and starts to break down the bond between the paint and substrate. During the warmer months you’d want to quickly inspect the sign and help rid any bugs and nests that might build up along the corners.
Since starting our business back in 1992, we are always pleased when we see one of our earlier projects looking as good as the day it did when we first installed it. This can only happen with regular inspections and cleaning. A service is offered to clients who have purchased a sand-blasted sign from us in the past to potentially refurbish a worn or damaged sign.
This service is based on a per-project availability dependent on condition of the sign and replacement costs towards a new sign. If you’re interested in this service please do not hesistate to contact us directly at 607-748-3986.
