With over 300 days of sunshine a year, damage from the sun is a real concern for Colorado residents. Don’t think you are immune, check your bright rooms for damage! Open wooden cabinet doors and see if the door has left a shadow, lift up rugs and check the flooring below, look behind drapes and blinds for discoloration or deterioration. If you don’t see signs, then you’re not too late!
Protect Yourself From UV Rays
When people think of the sun’s damaging UV rays, they usually think about sun damaged skin or protecting themselves from sunburns with UVA and UVB sunscreen or UV blocking clothing, or wearing UV sunglasses to protect their eyes when they go outside. Until there is a noticeable problem of sun damage in your home, you typically don’t think about protecting yourself indoors.
Protect Your Home and Everything In It
Sun damage shows up in your home in many ways, discoloration, fading, and degradation of furnishing, fabrics, flooring and artwork. If you spend a lot of time in sunny areas of your home, you are also exposing your skin to the damaging UV rays.
Our window films have the exclusive endorsement from the Skin Cancer Foundation because they block 99.9% of the damaging ultraviolet light. Skin cancer is preventable and installing window film is one of the easiest ways to mitigate your risks indoors. Eliminating UV rays from your home protects your skin and your belongings.
The Fading Is Happening Right Now
We have seen it time and time again, the sun’s fading damage to expensive furniture and beautiful flooring. The most frustrating part is that it is not just in older homes that have had long exposure to the intense sun – we see it in relatively new homes, on new furniture or recently replaced floors.
Residential UV Window Film Stops Fading
Unfortunately the outcome is not good, all things fade in the sunlight, both direct and indirect sunlight, even the most color-fast fabrics. People who intentionally fade fabrics (their clothes) can accomplish noticeable results in 1 month or less. The sun’s ultraviolet light is working to fade your furnishings right now.
Stop the sun’s fading destruction by blocking 99.9% of the ultraviolet light that enters your home. The sun’s UV spectrum, invisible to the human eye, is what causes the damage. The amount of time it takes for the damage to become noticeable depends on the materials in your home. It is harder to notice sun damage and fading on lighter fabrics and hardwood flooring or cabinets. Darker materials show signs of fading much sooner. However, even though you may not visibly see the damage, unless you are blocking the UV, the damage is happening everyday.
