Everything You Need to Know About Window Film Installation and Removal

If you want maximum comfort in your own home, you need to install high-quality window films. However, the quality of the films is only one part of ensuring that you and your home will be well-protected from the sun. You need to know how to install your product correctly so that the film will stay with you for as long as possible. With that said, here’s how you install and remove window tints:

The Installation Process
The first thing that you need to think about is the type of film that you want to make sure that you invest in one that offers the maximum benefits for the purpose that you’re looking for. For example, if you live in an area that is exposed to strong sun rays and has a high prevalence of storms, you may need a security film to help protect your window.

Once you have chosen the window tint that you need, the next thing you need to do is to measure the window so that you order the correct size of the film. You also need to make sure you clean the window of any dust, grime, and lint to ensure that the window is as clean as can be. This process will ensure both a better quality installation and a sleek, clean finished product.

Once the film arrives, the next thing that you will need to do is to take off the liner, exposing the adhesive which will then be placed onto the window. During this step, you need to spray the pulled liner with a soap solution to prevent it from sticking back onto the film. Once the liner has been completely removed, another adhesive-enhancing solution will then be sprayed onto the sticky side of the film before it’s laid on top of the glass surface. The film will then be placed on one corner and slowly pressed down towards the opposite side of the glass surface.

Once the entire film is attached to the window surface, you will need to squeegee out all the air bubbles that are trapped inside of the film before trimming the edges of the film to fit with the window perfectly. It’s important to remember that you shouldn’t wash your window for at least 30 days after the installation to ensure that the adhesive is cured properly.

How Long Does It Take?
A professional installation service can do 15 standard-sized windows in 2 hours, but that’s because they have all the expertise and tools to take care of the job proficiently. An amateur installer, however, may take up to half an hour to finish a single window. Therefore, if you’re in a time crunch, it’s always better to go with a professional service.

The Removal Process
The process of removing window tint is much easier compared to the installation. The tinted window will be sprayed down with an anti-adhesive solution which will make the film peel off slightly around the edges. Then, you will need a scraper to get the film off of the window. The solution will need to be sprayed as you go. Make sure that you don’t scrape too hard, as that can harm the surface of the window. Repeat this process until the entire film comes off.

A professional can get this done within minutes, but someone without experience will take a lot longer. Furthermore, you may also harm your window in the process.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
