Taking Care of Your Window Film

window tint film cleaningWindow films can be incredibly helpful in more than one situation, and if you happen to be the kind of person that’s been making use of these films than you need to understand how to care for them as well. If you don’t take the proper steps needed when it comes to cleaning these windows you’re going to notice that the film itself is going to break down. The window film tint that you’re using is obviously going to be of the highest quality, but understanding how to clean them properly is going to ensure that your windows look amazing for the near future. You should never clean your window film tint before a 30 day period has passed, because doing so would result in terrible consequences (obviously nothing too vicious, but it’s still something to worry about). Glass cleaners are the perfect kind of product that you can make sue of when you’re cleaning the window film tint itself, and the window film tinting process isn’t an easy one (which means you really shouldn’t want to go through it all a second time). Nobody is going to tell you that windows that have had some sort of film put on them need to be taken care of, it’s up to you to figure that out on your own.

You should always use fresh and soft cloths that haven’t been used before in order to actually wipe everything down, this will ensure that there are no streaks or water beads which could actually lead to damage. The film will dry out if it seems like you’ve gotten it too wet, so that’s something you need not worry about. The film itself is designed to completely dry out whenever it’s hit with liquids, so there’s no need to feel like you’re damaging the work itself.

If you don’t want to scratch the film you shouldn’t be using brushes that could be considered rough or brittle, that’s the quickest way you could go about damaging the film and making it  look out of place. Even if you think that paper towels are the right fit for the job you’re going to be pleasantly surprise (well, it wouldn’t be so pleasant in retrospect), because there are brands of paper towel on the market that can still put rather deep scratched into your window film tint project (and that’s a bad thing!).

Save on Energy Costs with Home Window Tinting

home-residential-window-tinting

These windows have a Western exposure, so the afternoon sun was brutal. We used a film that reduced the heat entering the home by 67% while still letting in plenty of natural light. It also blocked 99% of the UV rays that cause furnishings and artwork to fade. All of these benefits and a Lifetime Warranty!

You spend a lot of time and energy trying to keep your home looking nice. Getting plenty of natural light in your living space is important but too much direct sunlight can cause a wide range of issues. Think about: the sun could shine on your TV, making it difficult to see the screen. The direct sunlight can also fade everything from carpets to hardwood floors to furniture, which could cost thousands to replace! The real icing on the cake though is the added expense in cooling costs. All that sunlight causes your home to heat up, which means you’ll need to crank the AC. Thankfully, home window tinting offers a solution to all of these problems and more.

Your windows play an integral role in heat regulation in your home. Heat loss and heat accumulation through windows actually make up 50% of utility bill costs on average, according to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual. What a waste! Even if you’re not an environmentalist, the added expense ought to get your ire up.

Having your windows treated, however, can dramatically lower your heating and cooling bills. It works by preventing heat from the sun from penetrating into your home and affecting the temperature. Hot air stays out and cool air stays, or vice versa.

As we stated earlier, direct sunlight through windows can cause all sorts of damage to your flooring and furnishings. However, once you have residential window tinting installed, you can feel safe hanging a piece of artwork across from a window that gets the afternoon sun. In fact, this tint can block over 99% of UV rays. So, your treasured heirlooms, draperies, and everyday items stay like new and won’t experience any fading or discoloration. Not to mention, you won’t be put in direct sunlight while in your home either, reducing your risk of fine lines, wrinkles, and even skin cancer.

The only solution to this problem previously was to always keep the shades drawn or the blinds closed. However, you don’t have to do that anymore. By offering glare reduction, heat regulation, and UV ray blockage, tint allows you to see your neighborhood and let the sunshine in without all of the negative effects.

You should be comfortable in your own home and you shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to keep up with energy costs. Instead, invest in film for your windows and you’ll see a dramatic drop on monthly expenses and a dramatic increase in your quality of life.
