ATLANTA, GA, January 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta tint professionals at The Tint Guy would like to take a moment to talk about proper window tint maintenance. Whether you have tint installed on the windows in your home or vehicle, knowing the right way to take care of it makes all the difference regarding its performance and longevity.
The Easy Way to Maintain Your Window Tint
Given that most window film is designed to be low-maintenance, you do not need to spend too much time keeping its quality intact. However, the buildup of dirt, dust and grime can lead to a number of issues, such as decreased energy efficiency and an overall lack of performance. Thus, to maximize your investment and keep your home or car looking at its finest all year, cleaning is key.
The rule of thumb when cleaning tinted windows is to use the same materials that you would on non-tinted ones. Just remember not to use an ammonia-based product, as this can cause the film to deteriorate more quickly. A 50/50 solution of water and vinegar is an excellent homemade alternative to commercial cleaners. Spray the film and wipe away gently with a soft cloth.
Also, it's important to wait 30 days to clean newly installed tint. To ensure that the curing process has given the adhesive enough time to stick to the glass, it is not recommended to clean window film for at least a month after being installed.
According to Chris Robinson, Owner of The Tint Guy, "Window tint does not require a lot of hands-on attention when it comes to upkeep. As long as you clean the film regularly, it will do its job."
