April showers have come and gone and summer has finally arrived. In Chicago, summertime means long, warm days spent on the banks of Lake Michigan, strolls through Millennial Park, festivals at Navy Pier, and lots of fun summer activities. It also means that you’ll be spending more time outside, making UV protection more important than ever. That’s why now is the perfect time to install UV blocking window film for your Chicago home. With window tint, you can enjoy the beauty and warmth of the summer sun without worrying about the consequences of UV exposure.


Why UV Protection Is Important for Your Health & Home

You’re well aware that you need UV protection when you go outside. If you don’t put on sunblock, you could wind up with a nasty sunburn. But what about when you’re indoors? UV rays are just as serious inside your home as they are outside. You may think you’re safe, but in reality UV radiation is still getting into your home through your windows.

UV exposure has serious consequences for both your home and your health. Excessive contact can result in issues like:

  • Damage to floors and furniture
  • Fading in colors, paint, and fabrics
  • Damage to your skin (i.e. sunspots, thin skin, etc.)
  • Eye disease (cataracts, glaucoma, etc.)
  • Immune system suppression
  • Cancer


How UV Blocking Window Film Keeps You Safe

Installing window film for your Chicago home is an effective way to reduce your exposure to ultraviolet radiation. UV blocking window film uses spectrally selective technology to detect UV rays upon contact. UV light is redirected away from your home, keeping your interior and those inside safe from the sun. Meanwhile, visible light is allowed to enter through the film, flooding your interior and keeping your home bright and beautiful.
