10 COMMON HIMALAYAN SALT LAMP PROBLEMS and HOW TO FIX THEM

Right away, here are ten normal issues you may insight with your Himalayan salt light and how you can fix these issues. 

1. MY LAMP SWEATS AND IT’S STARTING TO MELT ALL OVER THE TABLE. HOW Might I GET IT TO STOP? 

Himalayan pink salt lights eliminate foreign substances from the air by engrossing the minuscule water beads which convey them. The hot salt precious stone then, at that point vanishes clear water back out into its environmental factors while keeping any retained particulate caught inside. This cycle – called hygroscopy – implies that occasionally a Himalayan salt light will perspire. 

In drier environments, this perspiring impact will happen without a doubt, seldom if by any means. (Mine still can’t seem to do it… *knock on wood*) However, on the off chance that you live in an extremely damp region, your light will assimilate more dampness from the air and the precious stone will ooze a more prominent volume of water (potentially to the detriment of your furnishings.) 

One potential arrangement is to leave your light turned on every minute of every day. Salt lights don’t utilize a lot of energy, so you will not need to stress over running your electric bill up or harming the climate thusly. 

In the event that you as of now leave your salt light running the entire day consistently, check whether you can track down a less damp area in your home where the light can live. Keep it as distant as conceivable from wet regions like the shower, kitchen and clothing. 

You may likewise need to have a go at utilizing a higher-wattage bulb which will produce more warmth and help the water caught inside the precious stone to vanish quicker. Simply recall not to surpass the maker’s determinations for most extreme bulb strength which ought to be stepped someplace on the bulb lodging. 

2. I’VE TRIED EVERYTHING, BUT THE LAMP IS STILL SWEATING. HELP? 

On the off chance that you and your Himalayan salt light live in an environment that is just sticky enough that the salt precious stone will consistently perspire, there several means which you will need to take to both protract the existence of your light and forestall any mishaps which may happen because of the exorbitant dampness. 

To start with, save your furniture by utilizing keeping a napkin or saucer under your light. (These silicone liners turn out incredible for most lights.) 

Likewise, you’ll need to leave the light running all day, every day to dissipate however much of the water from inside the precious stone as could reasonably be expected. 

Utilize a dry, build-up-free material to wipe the salt precious stone off at whatever point you notice a huge development of dampness outwardly. 

Likewise, watch out for glimmering as this may demonstrate that the bulb lodging has taken on dampness or has gotten harmed. In the event that you notice the bulb has begun to glimmer or in any case breakdown, turn off the light and let it cool down, then, at that point eliminate the bulb lodging and test the bulb to ensure it’s anything but too hot to even consider contacting. Cautiously, eliminate the bulb and investigate the entirety of the parts for consumption, free contacts, or some other noticeable harm. On the off chance that you either can’t discover or can’t fix the issue with the bulb lodging, you may just have to supplant the string together. 

3. I DON’T WANT TO TURN MY LAMP OFF AT NIGHT BECAUSE IT WILL SWEAT, BUT THE LIGHT IS TOO BRIGHT TO SLEEP WITH IT ON. 

In the event that you need to keep your Himalayan pink salt light in the room, however, it’s excessively brilliant for you to lay down with the light on, here are a couple of alternatives that may work for you: 

Accepting that your light didn’t accompany a dimmer switch, you might need to buy one of these and trade it out for the old non-dimmable rope to get together. (Then again, assuming you haven’t bought your salt light at this point, you might need to buy a salt light that accompanies the ability to diminish the light, like this one) 

On the off chance that the light is still excessively splendid in any event when completely diminished, you could take a stab at moving it’s anything but a nearby storeroom or some other region that would conceal the light without eliminating the light from your nearby area. 

In the event that the initial two choices appear to be an issue, the simplest arrangement is to keep the light on a napkin, however, feel free to turn it off while you rest. Should a great deal of dampness develop on its surface, you can generally wipe the salt gem off with a build-up-free material toward the beginning of the day when you awaken. 

4. I GOT MY LAMP, BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE AFFECTING THE AIR QUALITY IN MY HOME. 

In the event that you have issues with allergens and your new light doesn’t appear to help by any means, there are two or three purposes behind which this may happen. 

On the off chance that the allergens are inside your home’s ventilation framework, even an exceptionally huge Himalayan pink salt light probably will not be sufficient to balance the consistent stream of particulate streaming out of your air conduits. Consider having your air framework examined and cleaned if important. 

Something else, HPS lights have a particular precious stone to room size proportion for how much air they can filter under ordinary conditions. Here are some broad measuring rules for picking the right light: 

For the normal room, a more modest light like this 5-8 lb light ought to give sufficient inclusion. 

For open spaces like a parlor or lair, you’ll need to utilize a bigger light like this 8-11 lb light. 

By and large, your light should have 1 pound of a salt gem per 16 square feet of floor space to appropriately purify the air in a room. 

On the off chance that you can’t track down an enormous enough light for your planned area, recollect that you can utilize different lights spread out around the space to accomplish a similar impact. 

5. MY LAMP IS STARTING TO LOOK DIRTY. HOW Might I CLEAN IT WITHOUT MELTING THE SALT? 

In the event that your Himalayan salt light has been drawing in residue and it’s beginning to look somewhat shabby, no concerns! Cleaning a Himalayan salt gem is simple. 

Mood killer your light, unplug it, and permit the salt to chill off to room temperature. Then, at that point basically saturate a fabric or wipe so the material is soggy, yet not wet. (A decent broad standard is to press out as much water as possible prior to contacting fabric or wipe to salt.) Gently wipe away garbage from the outside of the gem and wipe it off with a build-up-free material. Then, at that point put your light in a difficult spot in its home, plugin, and turn it on. When completely warmed, the revived salt precious stone will normally dissipate off any water leftover from its shower. 

6. I TURNED MY LAMP ON, BUT THE LIGHT WON’T COME ON. Supplanting THE BULB DOESN’T WORK. 

This is in all likelihood an instance of broken wiring or contacts somewhere inside the rope. Tragically, your lovely light involves a major substantial lump of emptied out precious stone controlled by a minuscule fiber inside a delicate globe of glass on the finish of some shaky strands of copper wire sheathed in delicate plastic. Should any of these materials get into a fight (as can happen when the light is moved around)… Let’s simply say that in a round of Rock-Power Cord-Light Bulb, rock consistently wins. 

Luckily, the line gathering is not difficult to supplant. You can arrange one here in the event that you need a substitution (or request them here in the event that you like to have substitution and an extra.) 

7. THE BULB IN MY LAMP BURNS OUT TOO FREQUENTLY. 

On the off chance that you’ve had a constant flow of wore out bulbs over too short a timeframe, here are some investigating pointers to assist you with distinguishing the issue: 

Ensure that the lights you are utilizing don’t surpass the most extreme wattage for your light. (As displayed in the above picture, this can be discovered stepped someplace on the bulb lodging.) 

On the off chance that your incessant worn-out bulbs have a smokey white appearance when you eliminate them, verify that the following bulb you introduce doesn’t contact within the surface of the salt precious stone (because of the wrong size or length). In the event that water from the gem runs down onto the hot bulb, it can make the glass break and the fiber inside oxidize which causes the white smoke to impact the glass. 

In the event that you move your light around frequently, it is conceivable that the bulb is getting jarred around and broken against within the light. Once more, this could bring about broken glass, an oxidized fiber, and a white smokey appearance on the worn-out bulb. 

Saltrado International accompanies two extra bulbs, simply in the event that the bulb wears out. 

8. MY LAMP FLICKERS ON AND OFF WHILE RUNNING. 

In case you’re seeing a ton of glinting, this might be an instance of a loosened-up wire or contact someplace inside the line or bulb lodging. Turn your light off, let it cool down, then, at that point assess the electrical parts for harm. A wrecked association somewhere in the circuit is a potential fire danger, so you’ll need to trade out the line to get together with another one. 

In the event that the gleaming is joined by unnecessary perspiring, this might be characteristic of dampness develop or erosion inside the bulb lodging. For this situation, turn off the light and unplug it promptly to forestall conceivable electrical harm. When the light and bulb cool down, eliminate the bulb from the light, test the light to ensure it’s anything but still hot, then, at that point cautiously unscrew the bulb and review the electrical segments. On the off chance that you notice any water or harm inside the bulb lodging, you may have to move your light to a less-damp area or utilize a higher-wattage bulb to support quicker dissipation. Once more, you’ll need to supplant the rope gathering if there is any harm. 

In the event that you do expand the strength of your bulb, be certain not to surpass the maker rules for worthy bulb strength (which ought to be stepped inside the bulb lodging as can be found in the picture above.) 

Keep a nearby watch on your light. In the event that the gleaming and dampness develop proceed, unplug the light and cease use as this could show a potential fire peril. 

9. I’VE LOOKED EVERYWHERE AND CAN’T FIND REPLACEMENT BULBS FOR MY LAMP. 

No concerns. You’re in good company. The cylindrical light that accompanied your light likely isn’t one of the normal shapes/sizes supplied by most large box superstores. While most salt lights are viable with a standard little 15 to 40-watt brilliant candelabra (E12) base bulb, we’ll remove the mystery from chasing for the right bulb at your local retailer.

10. I’VE HAD IT WITH THIS SALT LAMP! IT WON’T STOP SWEATING AND I’M TIRED OF BUYING NEW LIGHT BULBS! 

OK, so this one isn’t accurately a utilization or care tip, and considering it a security tip may be somewhat of a stretch. 

(Except if you’ve become so baffled that your pink salt light is at risk of becoming flawless dusk tinted shot, in which case: security tip!) 

While we might be infatuated with our assortment of Himalayan salt lights, we comprehend that not every person will concur with us. Thus, on the off chance that you’ve attempted them and you like the manner in which the lights look, yet you’ve had so numerous issues that you can’t tolerate it any longer, there is one more arrangement. Attempt a Himalayan salt tea light holder all things considered. They’re similarly just about as beautiful as light and brag the entirety of similar advantages (yet on a more limited size), however without the issues innate to electrical parts in a possibly wet climate. 

Simply recall that if your light would in general perspiration because of mugginess, a tea light holder will presumably do likewise. You’ll in any case need to keep a saucer under it to ensure your furnishings!
