Cleaning coated glass

Anyone out there know best ways to clean a hanging glass work that has been clear coated in case it breaks? Also if you know any cleaning services in the Seattle area that would be a bonus.

Thanks much.

Check with lighting contractors in your area. There used to be a lot of services that would have the ability to spray down hanging huge crystal chandeliers and that would clean them. It was used a lot for 6-12 foot chandeliers with many prisms that were in hotels and casinos. As I recall they would put down a large tarp and then have solutions that they sprayed the fixture and they came out brilliant.

Clear coated with what? I restore filthy dutch ovens - cast iron and clay ones by taking them up to 500 C in the annealer. Also removing labels from jars and bottles, burns away everything completely.
I imagine a coating like that would also burn off. Just a thought.

It was coated years ago by the previous owner, it was a clear rubbery stuff. Fumes put the previous owner of the glass shop in the ER. Way before my time.

clear and rubbery sounds a lot like silicon.
