Window film is a fantastic way to protect the interior of your home from fading and damage. Why does window film make such a difference?
Window Film 101
Window film is a thin material firmly attached to the glass in your residential or commercial building. It can serve a variety of purposes including preventing excess heat from entering the home, blocking out prying eyes with a deep tint, blurring the surface for increased privacy in the bathroom, or doing a combination of any of the above.
Residential Window Film Blocks UV Rays
Ultraviolet rays are not just dangerous for the health of your family, they are also dangerous for the longevity of your interior. Furniture and flooring can both undergo severe fading due to UV rays streaming inside. Residential window film will reflect ultraviolet rays back outside and stop them from ruining your interior. If you fail to protect the investment you’ve made in your hardwood flooring or carpet with window film, your floors might be structurally fine but very unappealing to look at.
Fading on Drapery
Aside from your flooring and furniture, did you realize that expensive drapery and curtains can be permanently faded and ruined due to the bright sunlight? Window treatments are significant investments that aren’t typically replaced very often, so it’s important to protect them the best that you can. Window tinting will ensure that they last significantly longer with less laundering and rotation. Without protection, streaks will become apparent and potentially ruin the fabric itself.
Protect Your Memories
Finally, window film also stops fading on personal items and sentimental objects like family heirlooms and photographs. Without blocking out the outdoor light, the UV rays will damage everything from books to paintings. The small investment you’ll make in window film will be returned multiple times over.
