You want your automobile to appear beautiful, but the sun can be harsh on both the inside and outside. The sun may cause the paint on your car to fade and even harm your dashboard and other electronics. Window tinting is an excellent technique to shield your vehicle from the sun’s damaging rays. Tinting your windows will keep your automobile appearing newer for longer while also keeping you comfortable in the summer heat. Does window tinting, in reality, last longer?
The Lifetime of Window Tinting.
Tinting your vehicle’s windows add style, security, and privacy. But how long does window tint truly last? Several variables influence the lifespan of window tint, including the film’s quality, exposure, application, and maintenance. If you invest in high-quality tinting film and maintain it regularly, you may enjoy tinted windows for many years.
After five years, most automotive window tinting fades from 99 percent to 70 percent. The quality of the cloth might influence the fading rate. Other factors that might influence fading include installation quality, maintenance, and frequency of usage.
What are the methods for cleaning window tint?
Window tinting will last longer if properly cared for and cleaned. Here are three methods for washing the automobile.
Using the Proper Cleaning Products
Window tint film is quickly destroyed by improper chemicals, which are regrettably the same chemicals that many people use to clean their automobile windows. Always use a window cleaner designed specifically for car window tint film for the best results.
Use the Two-Towel Approach
We recommend that you use the two-towel method. Wipe the window with one microfiber towel and buff away any residual cleaner or moisture with the second towel. Using microfiber towels will help avoid scratches and swirls in the tint film.
Some Tips for maintaining your tinted windows.
Allow time for the window tint to cure.
It is best to let the windows sit for a few days before washing them. If you wash your window tints before they have had time to cure fully, the water may cause the tints to lose their grip and create bubbles and other faults.
Limit abrasive cleaners.
Avoid using abrasive cleaners on the tinted surfaces of your windows. These compounds can degrade or discolor the window tint.
