What About Cleaning Or Maintenance?

To obtain maximum service life from your window film product, note the following instructions for proper care and maintenance. DO NOT CLEAN THE FILM FOR 30 DAYS AFTER INSTALLATION. This will help to secure proper curing of the adhesive system to the glass. Do not use ammonia solutions to clean any window film product. A good economical cleaning solution for window film is ½ ounce of liquid dish soap added to one quart of fresh water. A soft cloth or a clean synthetic sponge is recommended for washing the window film followed by another clean soft cloth or soft rubber squeegee for drying. Do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges, or any other cleaning materials that could scratch the film or that may have been contaminated with dirt particles, as is commonly the case when washing interior and exterior windows with the same cleaning materials. Some brands of paper towels are coarse enough to put fine scratches in the film, even films with a protective hard coat finish. While these scratches may be too thin to be seen at the beginning, they can damage the polished look of the film over time. Always use fresh clean soft materials to wash and dry your window film surfaces.
