Upkeep of tinted windows in your office and home

If you recently invested in top quality window tinting for your office or home, you would most likely want to ensure it stays in perfect condition. Follow the below-mentioned steps to keep your home and office cool and UV resistant.

Always use a soft material like a cloth to clean the dirt and dust from tinted windows. If you can get a microfiber cloth to clean the surface, it will gather all the dust and dirt from the window without leaving any scratch. Coarse objects like steel sponges or plastic sponges can leave an immense amount of scratches on your home and office tinted windows.

Other than the cleaning object, it is also important to understand which cleansing material you are using for your tinted windows. Products like baking soda can prove to be very harsh on the window surface. To ensure the safety of the tinting film, use simple soapy water and rubber squeegees, but check properly that there are no edgy metallic points in the squeegee. Otherwise, you may unintentionally harm the tinted film on the window.

Some of the safest substitutions to soapy water are a mixture of vinegar and water, and non-abrasive cleansing solutions. Even cleaning chemicals and paper towels available in the market can be harmful to the tinted windows.

Never try to clean a wet tinted film. Wait for the film to dry, before you start cleaning the window. Window tint films are too vulnerable.

Even if you are good at maintaining your window tints, sometimes it is better to take professional help. Generally, a tinted window can give proper service for about 10-15 years.  However, many manufacturers only give warranty up to 5 years. Before you select any manufacturer,  make sure they provide you with a lifetime warranty for window film maintenance.
