When it comes to investing in property improvements, it’s always a good idea to do your own research. This helps you make the most informed decision for anything you purchase. Many homeowners and business owners are turning to window film for solving property concerns. Due to the cost-effectiveness and exclusive benefits available, window film is a great option for a wide variety of property types. However, for those with houseplants, they may be concerned with this investment. One of our most frequently asked questions is– does window film kill houseplants in Austin properties?
The Benefits of Window Film for Your Austin Property’s Houseplants
Since many window film options are designed to block solar heat gain and UV rays, property owners have raised concerns in regards to their houseplants. However, these window film products only block UVA and UVB rays while maintaining the blue and red light needed by houseplants to thrive. Window film can actually be beneficial for most houseplants since it maintains the light they need, blocks UV radiation which can sometimes damage plants, and prevents solar heat gain in windows from impacting houseplants. Window film installation can help lower-light plants thrive as well. Some plants will need a few days to adjust after window film installation. If you’re concerned with how your plants will react, you can always move them to a lower light area for an experiment. This is only required if you are investing in tinted films– optically-clear window film will not impact light transmissions for your plants.
