Cleaning Windows with Film, Is There a Difference?

Window film can be a great addition to any home or business. Providing privacy, UV protection, energy efficiency or security. However, cleaning windows with window film is a little different than traditional windows. As one of the most frequently asked questions, We’ll walk you through the best practices and expert tips for keeping your windows pristine while preserving the integrity of your window film.

– Avoid using abrasive cleaners or tools that could scratch the window film.
– When looking for the right cleaners, Abrasive cleaners contain minerals such as Silica, Quartz, and Calcite, which help scrub and polish surfaces by creating friction. On the other hand, non-abrasive cleaners do not contain these minerals and clean without relying on friction. Look for these options when shopping
– Never use ammonia-based cleaners, as they can cause the film to deteriorate over time.
– Clean your windows regularly to prevent dirt and grime buildup, which can be more challenging to remove if necessary.
– After initial installation, avoid cleaning for at least 2 weeks to ensure film is fully applied.
