One of the best things about owning your own home is being able to make it look exactly how you want it to. You get pick out all of the patterns and colors for your rugs, drapes, and upholstery. You get to choose what type of flooring you want, whether it’s super plush carpet or sleek, sophisticated hardwood. And you can fill it with exactly the right furniture to meet your needs.
That’s why it’s more than a bummer when the summer sun barges in and ruins everything in your home. Nothing causes colors to fade faster than the sun. You may have bought that leather sofa only a few months ago, but if you leave it by a window, before long, it’s going to look like it’s been there for years. Sunlight is notorious for causing fading and ruining furniture and floors.
But don’t worry, there’s an easy way you can prevent floors and carpet from fading. All you have to do is make a small adjustment to your windows.
Why Do Floors Fade?
Floors fade because of contact with the sun. The roof of your home only does so much to block the sun. Light still gets inside through the clear glass panes in your windows and doors. And with it comes uv radiation, flooring’s worst enemy. Uv rays suck the life out of flooring faster than you imagine. And you won’t even realize it’s happening…until you move the furniture. Once you see the big outline on the floor where your couch was covering it and protecting it from the sun, it will be too late.
What Is the Best Way to Prevent Fading?
Curtains and blinds only do so much to stop fading. When they’re open, uv rays can easily get into your home. And if you keep them closed, your home won’t get any sunlight at all. Truly, the best way to prevent fading is by installing window film. San Antonio homeowners can invest in an affordable uv protection film to protect their furniture, home, and family from the sun. Simply call your local window tinting contractor and schedule a consultation to get started. It’s that easy.
UV protection is just one of the many benefits that window film offers. For more information on window tinting products, you can contact our office and speak to a member of our San Antonio team directly.
