It doesn’t feel good seeing your tint in bad conditions after a short period of time. High-quality tints should last about thirty years whether it be in your car or in your home. Here are 3 tips to maintain your window tints.
A common misconception is that you can’t clean windows that have film on them. In actuality, cleaning your windows can help preserve your tint, in the right way. First, try gently wiping your windows with water and soap on a soft microfiber cloth. This should clean off any visible filth. Next use a cleaning solution that does not contain ammonia, alcohol, vinegar, or grainy substance– all of these contain corrosive properties that can harm your tint– to clean off small particles from your windows.
Although it is slightly more expensive, investing in a higher quality tint will be better in the long run. You will not be able to maintain the quality of the tint if the tint itself is of poor quality. Perhaps two tints look the same to you, but the properties within each tint are different. At Pelicar, we offer 3M window film– one of the best in comparison to other films. Remember, window tints are not only for looks. Make sure you know what you are valuing when getting window tints.
A mistake many people make is touching, cleaning, and moving their window tint. These actions can hurt your film and limit their longevity. After applying the film to your windows, you should wait about a week for them to completely dry. Avoid rolling down your windows, cleaning them, and touching them. The initial stages of your window tint are the most important. If they do not cure correctly, it could lead to discoloration, peeling, blotching, and streaking. Let those windows cure to maintain those window tints!
Following these steps will ensure that your tints last for a while. Tints are an investment that will benefit someone their whole lives, so keeping them in good condition is essential. Clean your tints correctly, invest in the right tint, and have patience after application for your tints to look great.
