it annoys some homeowners but first thing we do is flick on all lights and open curtains and blinds.
it’s amazing how many spots are revealed this way
I went into a home once and turned the lights on where we would be working. Went to the truck to get the tools and came back to rooms where the lights were off. Presprayed and then went to the truck again. Came back to find lights off and ceiling fans on high. I went and explained to the customer that we needed to keep the ceiling fans off until after we cleaned and the lights on and that we would turn the lights off when we got done with a room. I could tell she was just itching to turn the lights off and the fans on. She said that she wanted to leave the fans on so that it would dry fast. I told her that it would be fine to do after we were finished but leave the fans off until AFTER we get done!
i just go back through and turn lights back on lol
Lol, they do this to me all the time.
My biggest issue with lights is figuring out which breaker turns them off. About half my accounts being commercial don't use light switches, they want the lights off when I'm done but don't mark the right breakers and the chart in the panel is often wrong.
Lol flip all the mains. Fug-em! Too cheap to put contactors in. One switch can kill them all.
It gets really confusing when you get into places like supermarkets that have been remodeled a half dozen times. The panel for parking lot lights is in the produce room, panel for the produce room in in the electrical room, bakery panel is in the receiving bay, half the lights turn off via switches in the store manager's office, 1/4 of the lights turns off via breaker switches in the break room, 1/4 turn off via breakers in the meat room. The meat saw breaker is in the compactor room, the meat grinder breaker is in the dair hallway. And for some reason the beer coolers can be turned off via a light switch in the employee bathroom.... It took me 5 years working that place to figure out where everything was.
Yesss, this is the only issue I have with lights, some people are like vampires! Lol. We need all the lights on especially when we’re doing marble polishing jobs!
Exactly, apartments around here were built with lamp idea in bedrooms, fall and winter I'd have to carry lights. Sucks. I do rentals end of most my days.
Yep me too mate
Lind Lighting has some incredible options for you guys. LED, battery operated, and 360-degree lighting so you can plop it in one spot and light the entire area. You can even get a smexy little case for it, too. They sell on Amazon. Not the cheapest in the world, but oh are they nice. I got to play with some at Herc Rentals, and you practically need sunglasses.
I'm going to look those up, might be nice to have for a number of reasons. I've used the battery powered LED studio lights my wife uses for her photography before. But shhh, she doesn't know I used them
I have a bunch of those!!
That’s what I was talking about tripod light. Except mines old school halogen.
