The Basics of Window Film Maintenance: What You Need to Know

So you’re thinking about upgrading your windows with window film? Congratulations, you’re well on your way to making a great investment for your home or business. Nothing improves window performance more than a powerful security or solar control window tint.

But now you’re wondering, what about maintenance? How do you take care of your new window tint? Fear not, we’re here to put your concerns to rest! In this article, we’ll provide you with all the information you need to know about window film maintenance in San Antonio.

How to Maintain Your Window Film After Installation

Sometime down the road after your window film has been installed, you’re going to want to clean your windows. Dust, fingerprints, and water spots have a way of accumulating on glass that’s not pretty to look at. When the time comes, it’s important to follow the basic guidelines for proper window film maintenance.

Tips for Taking Good Care of Your Window Film

Follow these tips to keep your window film in good condition and maximize its lifespan:

  • Don’t clean the film right away after the installation. Wait a few weeks. Normally, it takes window film about 30 days to dry and set.
  • Don’t use any hard brushes to clean the film. Instead, use a soft towel like a microfiber cloth.
  • Do remove dust and spots after the 30 day period. This will keep your film clean and beautiful.
  • Don’t install anything on top of the film that isn’t approved by the manufacturer. A lot of cheap decorative window clings and marketing materials aren’t compatible with architectural films.
  • Do remove the film once it becomes clear that it’s in poor condition. A 20 year old film with a bunch of scratches and rips isn’t going to anything for your energy efficiency.
