How to Take Good Care of Your Window Film

There are so many great benefits that come along with installing window film for your property. Temperatures become much more tolerable, everyone’s happier, safer, and more productive, and it makes your space look stunning. But perhaps one of the greatest benefits of all is that there’s virtually no maintenance involved. All you have to do is keep it clean.

Cleaning Your Window Film

If you’ve just had your window film installed recently, it’s best to wait a few weeks before you do any cleaning. During the first 30 days, your window film is still drying and attaching itself to the glass. If you try to clean it during this time, you may move it out of place or damage the surface.

However, if you’ve decided to have your film installed with a high tech primer like C-Bond, you may not have to wait as long. If you’re not sure if your film is okay to clean, you may want to check with your tinting company first.

Steps for Easy Window Film Maintenance

Once the film has fully dried and set, it’s safe for cleaning. Follow this easy steps for proper window film maintenance:

  • 1. Find a soft cloth for cleaning. We recommend using a microfiber towel.
  • 2. Gently run the cloth along the surface of the film. Don’t press too hard or scrub the film. Try to avoid using harsh chemical cleaners.
  • 3. Clean the film when dust or fingerprints accumulate. After 10 years, check the condition of the film. It may need to be replaced. However, some films can last for up to fifteen years or longer.
