With the increasing awareness regarding the hazards of exposure to UV radiation, many people are looking for ways to protect themselves and their loved ones from the oh-so-warm yet harmful sun rays. Typically, a person is exposed to the sun when they go out or if they sit close by a window at home. Of course, there could be other ways of exposure, but those two are the most common. As far as going out is concerned, they can put on sunscreen and tint their car windows. But slathering sunscreen when at home can be too much of a hassle, so the only way left to block out the perilous sun is by installing UV films over the windows just like in an automobile. Although that seems to be such an easy and straightforward solution, many people don't use it because of the baseless myths circulating.
Sadly, gullible homeowners often fall prey to the misinformation spread by naysayers and stay exposed to the sun needlessly. Considering the impact of misconceptions about UV films, we decided to enlighten you and separate fact from fiction. Hence, here are the top myths about sunscreens that are groundless and absolutely preposterous!
UV Screens Make Homes Dark.
When people look at cars with tinted shades and are unable to spot the passengers, they start to think that that's how all UV films must be. And because window sunscreens are a relatively recent phenomenon, they are wrongly perceived due to the similarity. But the fact is that UV films, whether for a car or home, come with varying shades; you can choose the one that suits your preference. They can appear pitch black or virtually transparent based on what you decide.
UV Films Damage Windows
As mentioned earlier, UV sheets are fairly recent, so misunderstandings about them are well expected. This is yet another misconception that most likely surfaced because people didn't know much about UV window films. If you hire a reputable company with expert craftspeople, you will get sleek sunscreens over your windows that could last a lifetime. But the key here is choosing the right techs. If you hire an unprofessional team, the chances are your window screens will not last more than a few months.
UV Films Cannot Be Cleaned
Since sunscreens are pasted over windows, people assume cleaning them will lead to peeling. While it may be true in some cases, it's not so always. The few instances in which a window film might begin to come off will most likely have a lousy team behind the installation. As long as your sunscreen techs are professionals and masters of their craft, your UV films will not peel off, well, unless you scrub them like a stain on your carpet. You need to be gentle with the cleaning and follow the instructions provided by your contractor.
Prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to skin cancer and many other dermatological issues; therefore, do your best to stay safe and not let false rumors misguide you. Hire professional service providers and get your windows covered with sunscreens today.
