Tips for Removing Bubbles from Vehicle Window Tinting
Vehicle window tinting is a low-cost upgrade that most Valley drivers wouldn’t even think to question–that is, until a bubble forms! Not only is bubbled tint annoying to look at, but it interferes with visibility as well, making it dangerous and illegal according to state law. Below, we’ve put together a few tips for removing bubbles from your car’s window tint.
How Bubbles Form in Automotive Window Tint
Bubbles form in your vehicle window tinting for several reasons. Water droplets, dirt, debris, and air bubbles become trapped in your car’s window tint during application. Additionally, the adhesive of old tint fails and begin to bubble.
Water droplets evaporate within 2 weeks of tint application, unless the tint has been poorly installed. A qualified professional also avoids air bubbles and cleans the window before installation.
Preventing and Removing Tint Bubbles
Choosing a high-quality vehicle window tinting results in fewer bubbles, as does opting for professional installation and cleaning your windows with an ammonia- and vinegar-free cleaner.
You can personally remove tint bubbles, which is tedious process, and one that is not generally recommended. If you damage the tint while trying to remove the bubbles yourself, it could make it difficult to replace in the future. A poor tint removal job makes it difficult to install new window tint correctly.
Generally, the best option is to contact an expert, like Smartfilm. We will assess the condition of your tint and help you determine the best option for remedying the situation. If it’s determined that the tint cannot be salvaged, we will be happy to remove it (at cost) and install a new window tint in its place.
