FLs and incandescent lamps can break easily so you have to take absolute care in installing and cleaning them. LED lights fixtures do not use glass no filaments no vacuum seals and dont have gases or chemicals like the FLs. They are purely made of Solid State Light construction which eliminates moving or breakable parts.
If the fixture includes glass shades or crystals inspect these items for cracks chips and other damage. However keep in mind that in some instances you may be able to repair or replace the damaged portion. A missing crystal teardrop from an antique chandelier can often easily be replaced with a little bit of shopping around for the right piece. Finally dont forget that the electrical wiring of a piece can be replaced to ensure the fixture is safe for reuse.
In recent years all things reclaimed have become super trendy. Those who follow the trends may purchase items such as reclaimed barn wood furniture pieces antique display items and so forth; but few consider the prospect of reclaimed lights. When looking to update the lighting in your home why not consider using a reclaimed fixture?
Keep in mind that reclaimed does not necessarily translate into antique. True antiques are at least 100 years old and the term reclaimed simply means it was found or salvaged from elsewhere and is being offered for reuse. You may find reclaimed lights from offices and retailers that have gone out of business in the last couple of years translating into a relatively new light.
