How To Clean Window Film

If you have recently had window film installed or are considering installing window film, you may be wondering how to clean your film and maintain it. Window Tint LA is here to help. We can answer your questions to help you maintain the quality and beauty of your window film.

The Curing Process

The curing process is the drying time for your window film. When your film is installed, the installer will use a squeegee to remove as much of the solution as possible. It is nearly impossible to remove it all; therefore your film goes through the curing process.

After your installation is complete, keep in mind it can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks for your film to fully cure. It is perfectly normal to see small water bubbles or hazing during this time. Be sure that you do not attempt to burst or poke the water bubbles during this time, as this will damage your film. The bubbles and cloudy appearance will eventually disappear.

Cleaning Your Film

It is recommended that you wait at least 30 days before cleaning your film. This will allow the film to cure properly. When cleaning use a clean soft cloth, clean synthetic sponge, or soft paper towel. Be sure not to scrub the film aggressively and do not use abrasive cleaning tools.

Normal glass cleaning products are safe to use on your film. Do not use solutions that have harsh materials such baking soda and ammonia-based products like Windex. These products can ruin the colors and adhesion of your film.

How Often You Should Clean Your Film

Window film is virtually maintenance free, unlike curtains or drapes. You only need to clean your film occasionally to prevent build up of dust. If you have children, pets, or if the window is low to the ground you may need to clean the film more often.
