You might be wondering about how to clean your neon sign. It’s quite simple. LED neon, like traditional neon, is made up of hundreds of light-emitting diodes, (LEDs), tiny lights, enclosed in synthetic polymer tubes. You can bend this tubing and make any design you want. This tube is so easy to clean that it’s much easier than the traditional neon lights, which are made out of glass and can heat up quickly. The best part about keeping your LED sign looking great is that you can do it yourself. You’d need to hire a professional electrician to clean your traditional neon sign.
Here’s how you can clean and maintain your neon signs.

This will prevent it from being damaged by passing vehicles or inclement weather. Keep your LED neon signs cleaner for longer by not hanging them directly below an air conditioner. There, condensation can collect dust and ruin its appearance.
