Does your family suffer from the annoying glare of the sun beaming through the windows of your home? Does your furniture look faded? Do employees at your business complain that the heat and glare affects their productivity?

Window Film Installation Process

206061_347615385310786_776109416_nInstalling a window tint in your home or business is not a task for beginners. While some do-it-yourself projects give individuals the satisfaction of a job-well-done while cutting expenses, applying window film should not be a DIY project; you need quality product installed by professionals with the expertise and professional skills to do the job right the first time.

When installing a home window film, installers move furniture, cover carpet and flooring. They thoroughly clean each window, making sure the window is free of dirt and debris and then use a squeegee to properly dry each window. Each window is carefully measured before applying the window film that you selected, after which, the installer cuts the tinted film for each window, allowing about 1/16 to 3/4 of an inch of extra film. This allows for glass expanding and contracting.

Installers use a spray bottle of soapy water to lightly wet the window once again. They also spray soapy water on the film itself to help reduce any static electricity that can potentially affect the installation process. Using a squeegee, the tint is carefully applied, and installers go over the entire window with the squeegee again, working out any air or water bubbles. The tinted film is then trimmed to ensure the best-possible professionally installed window tint on each window of your home or business.

Window Film Maintenance

Tinted film is only a few millimeters thick so there is no effect on ability to see out of your windows. This window film will, however, provide you with extra privacy and protection against other people having the ability to see clearly into the windows of your home or business.

Providing proper maintenance to your professionally installed window film gives you the opportunity to enjoy the valued benefits of properly-installed window tinting for years to come.

  • You should not start cleaning your windows immediately after window film installation. You have to allow time for all moisture to evaporate before cleaning tinted windows.
  • After about 30 days, you can clean your tinted windows. Use a soft cloth and gentle product that you use on regular windows.
  • Do not use any type of abrasive cleaning products or tools. Avoiding abrasive cleaners or tools helps prevent damage to your newly-tinted windows. If you’re unsure of what products you should use, speak with your window film installer.
