Safety First: Preparing the Work Area: Before you begin replacing lights in your conservatory ceiling, prioritize safety.

It’s also advisable to have a sturdy step ladder or platform to access the ceiling safely. Consider wearing protective eyewear and gloves to shield yourself from potential debris or sharp edges.
Assess the Painted Ceiling: Take a close look at the freshly painted ceiling to identify any areas where the light fixtures were previously installed. Carefully inspect the surface for any paint drips or excess paint that may obstruct the proper fitting of the lights. Use a soft cloth or sponge to gently remove any paint residues, ensuring a clean and smooth surface.
Reattach the Light Fixtures: Now that the ceiling is prepared, carefully reattach the light fixtures. Align the fixtures with their corresponding mounting brackets or position on the ceiling. Depending on the type of fixture, you may need to twist them clockwise or tighten screws to secure them in place. With our lights, you simply clip them in and make sure they are secure remembering to connect the power supply. Ensure that each light is level and firmly attached to the ceiling.
Restore Power and Test the Lights: Once all the light fixtures are reinstalled and the covers are securely in place, restore power to the lights at the circuit breaker. Flip the corresponding switch to turn the lights on and test each fixture to ensure they are functioning properly. If any issues are detected, double-check the connections and consult an electrician if necessary.
