Getting your windows tinted is a great investment. They not only give your windows a sleek, modern look but it also saves you money on bills and protects your home from harsh UV rays. You want to make sure that your window film lasts as long as possible. Here is how to increase the lifespan of your tinted windows.
Install The Right Tint
It is important that you consult a professional and choose the right tints for your windows. There are a variety of different types and you want to invest in the best quality for your money. A professional will help you choose and install tinted windows that are durable, fade-resistant, and offer great UV filtering. You also want window tints that have long lasting color.
You do not want to clean your tinted windows immediately after you get them done. Instead, wait for them to set which can take anywhere from seven to thirty days, depending on the weather. You want to use either a rubber squeegee or cotton cloth to clean the windows. Choose a cleaner that is specifically designed for window film because other window cleaners may contain harsh chemicals that could cause damage. Typically, though, soap and water will do the trick. You want to use the cleaner or soap and water and simply wipe the window down with the cotton cloth. Once it’s clean, spray some more onto the surface and use the rubber squeegee to stroke the glass until dry.
Do’s & Don’ts
- Use a cleaner that clearly states it can be used for window film
- Use soft cloths
- Ask a professional what cleaning product is best to use
- Clean the windows right after they are installed
- Use razor blades, scrapers, or harsh products to clean windows
