Cleaning Instructions & Maintenance
Do Not Clean the Film until 30 Days after Installation
FILM DRY-OUT TIME
During the installation process our installers will remove as much of the mounting solution as possible, although a small amount will remain. Trapped installation moisture can cause small water bubbles and/or a slightly cloudy look. This is normal and should be expected. Do not attempt to pierce a water bubble during the dry-out time. Water bubbles and the cloudy look will eventually dissipate. Attempting to pierce a water bubble in an effort to drain moisture will damage your film and is not covered by warranty.
CLIMATE CONDITIONS & DRY-OUT TIME
Certain climate conditions can extend the dry-out time for as long as 30 to 60 days after installation. Cold and non-sunny weather conditions can lengthen the dry-out time while warm weather and direct sun light exposure will shorten it. The dry-out time for metallized high performance films will always take longer than conventional non-reflective films. If slow drying occurs, do not become alarmed. The trapped moisture will dry out completely.
Do not clean the film until 30 days after installation. This will help secure proper curing of the special mounting adhesive to the glass.
A good cleaning solution for window film is 15mL of liquid detergent added to 1L of water. Alternatively, use of Methylated Spirits either diluted with water or as concentrate is also recommended (with the exception of printed films and or vinyls). Ammonia based products can be harmful.
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. To avoid scratching the film, do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges or any cleaning materials that may have been contaminated with dirt particles, as is commonly the case when washing interior or 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.
