Proper care and maintenance of your window film can extend product longevity while ensuring you get the most out of this product. Residential and commercial window film have the same care requirements. Here are the most significant tips for how to take care of your window film:

Tips On How to Properly Maintain and Care for Window Film

  1. Once your window film is installed, don’t clean it and try to avoid touching the glass surface of your windows. This helps with the curing process. While unlikely, some individuals may notice a hazy look right after installation. This can be caused by trapped moisture but will dissipate on its own.
  2. Since window film is actually less porous than glass, it doesn’t need to be cleaned as often. We recommend using mild dishwashing detergent mixed with water. Commercial glass cleaner can also be used. Always use paper towels or soft cloths to clean your window film. Don’t use anything abrasive.
  3. Besides proper cleaning, your window film doesn’t require other maintenance. Interior films can utilize a silicone polish for better shine if you desire. Silicone polishes also add a protective layer for helping prevent scratches and other small damages.
