What if you could keep your home bathed in sunlight without the sacrifice of fading floors & furniture?
Imagine pouring your heart and wallet into creating your dream home, only to see it slowly fade under the sun’s relentless gaze. Harsh reality, right? The remodeling boom might be cooling, but the sun’s attack on your flooring and furnishings is as hot as ever. It poses a hidden threat to your precious investment by causing fading floors and furnishings. That’s nobody’s dream!
Sure, we all crave light-filled havens with stunning views. But those very windows can become gateways for the sun’s fading power. Don’t resign yourself to gloomy curtains or living in a cave! There’s a smarter way to protect your investment while keeping your home bright and breezy.
So, what’s the secret weapon against the sun’s sneak attack?
The Sun’s Not So Subtle Strike on Your Stuff: Fight Back with Window Film!
One of the best ways to attack the primary causes of sun damage and fading is with window film. Here, we will examine exactly what causes the fading and damage to occur and how window film is a great solution to consider.
What Causes Fading Floors, Furnishings & Sun Damage?
Ever wonder why your once vibrant furniture looks washed out, or your pristine floors seem dull? The culprit is more than just the sun itself, it’s a triple threat! Sunlight isn’t just one big bad ray, it’s a combo of UV rays, heat, and visible light, each contributing to the fade in different ways.
Here’s the breakdown on what causes fading:
- UV Rays: The big kahuna, making up 40% of the fading force. Window film sends them packing!
- Heat: 25% of the problem, and window film cools things down, literally!
- Visible light: Another 25%, and window film can filter it without making your home gloomy.
- The “other” Guys: Humidity, interior lighting, etc., contribute the remaining 10%. While film can’t control everything, it tackles the big hitters!
The best takeaway from this explanation and the chart is that you cannot “stop” fading completely unless the item you want to protect in a dark, climate controlled room. In real life, the most you can do is attack the major contributors of fading in a significant enough way to slow down the process. By slowing the process, you extend the life of your floors or furnishings.
Why Is Window Film a Good Solution?
The information above might have you thinking you have to block all your windows to protect your furnishings. Forget living in a batcave though! The key is to fight fire with… film. Window film acts like a superhero’s shield, blocking up to 99% of harmful UV rays, significantly reducing heat, and even filtering up to 60% of visible light without dimming your home. This triple block weakens the sun’s assault, dramatically slowing down fading and protecting your precious floors and furniture.
The best part? You get to keep the natural light and open feel of your home, while your floors and furniture stay vibrant for years to come. So ditch the blackout curtains and embrace the sunshine, protected by the invisible shield of window film!
