Maintenance and Care
Window tinting is an incredibly low maintenance way to enjoy the many benefits of UV protection, glare reduction, increased security, and more for years to come. While window tinting requires very little in the way of upkeep, there are a few things to keep in mind in order to keep it looking great and doing its job. First and foremost, the tinting must go through a curing period before it can be cleaned, which can range from a few days to a couple of weeks depending on the type of film used and local weather conditions. Once it’s ready for cleaning, use a soft, non-abrasive cloth and a mild soap or cleaning solution, avoiding ammonia-based products which can damage the tinting. Regular maintenance can help keep the tinting effective and help it last longer. With just a smidgen of care, your window tinting can look great and provide protection for many years to come
Immediately After Window Film Installation
- You May See a Slight Haze: It doesn’t happen often, but, sometimes window film may appear slightly hazy immediately after installation. This fogginess is due to a slight amount of moisture left under the film. This is normal and should disappear after a few days depending on the humidity levels where you live.
- You May See Tiny Bubbles: Immediately after installation, Trapped liquid behind the window film sometimes creates small water bubbles. This is also normal and to be expected. The important thing is that you do not pierce any of these water bubbles and leave the film alone until the full 30-day cure.
- Allow the Window Film to Cure: After window tinting is installed and the workers leave, it will not be fully dry. You should not clean or touch the film for at least 30 days before cleaning your window film. This gives time for the adhesives to set which adds up to a long life for your window tinting.
