Is your commercial sign looking a bit lackluster after a few years of wear and tear? Broken or unattractive signs aren’t going to bring in business. A bit of maintenance can make a huge difference to the state of your sign. If you notice your sign’s quality is dwindling and could use a makeover, Springfield Sign has a few maintenance tips to make your sign look like new again.
Every sign will need general repairs every few years to ensure a long operational life. If you notice any screws or loose bolts, or even fading text to repair any problems as they come. The best time to complete repairs is during hours your business is slow or closed, so you don’t lose potential foot traffic to your business.
Change Any Burnt Out Bulbs
Neon signs can really make a business stand out, especially during the nighttime hours. A sign with lights can’t do much business, however, if any of the lights are burnt out. Not only is it harder to convey your message, but your sign will make your business seem unprofessional if you don’t bother to change the lights. Always keep a few spare lights on hand just in case your sign was to go out unexpectedly. If you’re unable to change the bulbs yourself, call a trusted sign maintenance company to help you make repairs.
Rain or shine, weather will take its toll on your sign. Leaves and twigs can get lodged into your sign’s framework along with dirt, mud, and grime. A dirty sign doesn’t give off a good message to your customers. Sometimes all a sign needs is a bit of a powerwash or a wipedown. If your sign is electric, be sure to clean everything by hand to avoid damaging any electrical wiring or cables.
As the times change, your brand may need to readjust to keep up with current trends. Signs designed over 50 years ago may not cut it in today’s marketing. If your sign is looking a little lackluster and needs some improvements, why not try a redesign? Redesigning your company sign can give your brand a whole new look and attract customers that may not have looked twice at your business before.
Certain signs like electronic message boards are programmed to showcase specific messages or phrases during the day. Schools or stadiums may use these to advertise dates and times of events or exclusive product promotions. Eventually, these messages may expire and need to be updated. Any old or outdated content on your sign should be repurposed to make the message relevant again.
