Although rare, you may notice some fogginess of haziness on your film immediately after installation. This often results from moisture under the film after it was installed. But this is a normal occurrence and shouldn’t be a major concern. Give it some time, and it’ll disappear on its own.


Cleaning Window Tint

One benefit of using window tint is that it doesn’t attract dirt as quickly as glass. Therefore, you won’t need to clean it regularly as you would with glass.

But if you notice dirt accumulation, clean with a solution of water and a mild dishwashing detergent. You can also use commercial products designed for cleaning glass. However, this isn’t always necessary.


Remember to wipe off the solution with soft cloths or paper towels. If you’ve hired janitorial services to clean your windows, make sure to inform them about this tip.

Maintaining Window Tint
Film requires little or no maintenance for peak performance. However, you can take several steps to increase the lifespan of your window film. Use a silicone polish on the surface of interior films. This helps prevent scratching and bruising on the film.


Removing Tape from the Film
If you have adhesive tape on your film, you should remove it. You only need to peel it off like you’d peel something out of a glass window. However, if dealing with residual residue, peeling will not be effective. Instead, use a soft cloth and mineral spirits or alcohol to remove it. For stubborn adhesive, use methyl ethyl ketone or acetone with a soft cloth.

Tips to Care for Window Films

Proper care and maintenance are essential for any product to last long and offer maximum benefits. Window films aren’t different. Here are some things to do to keep your film in good condition for many years:

  • Regularly Clean Your Windows- don’t use clean tools or harsh abrasive cleaners when cleaning your windows. Instead, use a soft sponge or a microfiber cloth and a mild cleaning solution. Ensure that you’re using an ammonia-free cleaning solution to prevent discoloration.
