It is essential to ensure that you are properly caring and cleaning your window film after you have made the wise investment to have the windows of your home or office tinted with the right type of window films.
Taking care of residential/commercial window films
The new window film takes about 30 days to cure. Some water pockets and possibly a slight hazy appearance on the window film is witnessed by many homeowners/corporate individuals during the first 30 days of installing window film on the internal surface of the glass windows of your home or office.
The hazy appearance is caused by the residual water left from the installation of window film on the surface of the glass window. It (hazy appearance of the window film) effectively disappears once the moisture dries out. Windows under lanais or in shady areas will dry slower as compared to windows in direct sunlight (windows facing sunlight will dry faster).
