How to Clean LED Grow Lights?

I’ve been using my light for 3 months. I can see some dust on it. How do I clean it?

Step 1: Please make sure it is unplugged until the light has cooled to room temperature before cleaning. Avoid touching a working light to prevent the burns and electric shocks that can occasionally happen.

Step 2: Wearing goggles is advised, even if it’s only a basic pair of inexpensive sunglasses. Your LED grow lights could contain a lot of dust that can irritate your eyes and respiratory system because you haven’t cleaned them in a while.

Step 3: Gently wash the diode with a microfiber cloth dipped in isopropyl alcohol or topical alcohol (or other cleaning tools). Applying little at first and more subsequently is recommended.

Step 4: A thorough wipe can be done if there is no negative reaction to the grow light. Particularly where the blur is hazy and unclear, wipe in a circular motion.

Step 5: Apply just light pressure, as excessive pressure can harm the diode. You can also clean the frame and driver at the same time.

Step 6: Wipe any areas you might have missed with a cotton swab.

Step 7: Apply window cleaner and wipe a soft cotton linen towel over the LED grow light’s glass cover.

Step 8: Reinstall them after allowing them to sit for 30 to 60 minutes to let any remaining moisture go.

Step 9: Inspect the fixture for any broken or loose screws or grommets before putting it back.
