Keep Your Furniture Looking Like-New with UV Protection Window Film
As a homeowner, you take pride in the way your home looks. You’ve gone to great lengths to find the right furniture, artwork, and décor to show off your sense of style. But what happens when it starts to fade? You’re left with a house that looks unkempt and run down. The best way to protect the inside of your house is by installing UV protection window film throughout the home. Here’s how it works.
UV Rays Cause Your Fabrics to Fade
Believe it or not, standard window glass doesn’t do much to keep the sun’s rays out of your home. Instead, it refracts them, lessening the severity of the rays. But even lightly blocked rays can damage your furnishings quickly. Instead of the rich colors you love, you’ll notice faded materials in a matter of months.
When the sun’s UV rays hit your colorful upholstery and furniture, it creates a reaction with the dyes in the materials. Think of it as a liquid-free bleach. The rays cause the dye to lose its color and starts to fade it away. The longer the fabric is exposed to the rays, the more the color starts to leech out. But UV rays aren’t the only cause of fading. You also need to worry about the heat coming through the windows.
Heat loosens the bond between the dyes and the upholstery, fabric, and even your carpet fibers. The result is less vibrant colors. And when combined with significant UV exposure, the colors will fade quickly.
UV Protection Window Film Keeps Reduces Noticeable Fade
UV protection window film blocks up to 99 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays and even helps keep the residual heat outside where it belongs. You’ll still get the natural light you love inside. But that natural light won’t cause your upholstery and artwork to fade as quickly. And the less your home furnishings fade, the less often you’ll need to replace them with new versions.
Keep in mind that protection film won’t prevent fade completely. It’s a natural part of the wear and tear your home will see. But the right film can significantly extend the life of your home décor.
Is It Worth It?
Ultimately, Installing UV protection window film will preserve the look of your furnishings, artwork, carpets, and upholstery. And because it helps keep the heat outdoors, you’ll extend the lifespan of your furnishings. Let SmartFIlm install high-quality UV protection window film on your Phoenix-area home.
