I Just Got My Windows Tinted And....
Window Film: Care & Cleaning
Your new window film will take about 3 to 5 days to fully dry, sometimes longer depending on film brand, type, and weather conditions. Until this time your tinted windows may appear hazy or lumpy, and may seem to have water bubbles. DO NOT ROLL YOUR WINDOWS DOWN UNTIL DRY!
Window film may be cleaned with a soft clean cloth and alcohol based cleaner or plain water. Products that contain ammonia should not be used. (Ammonia will destroy the Anti-Scratch Coating on the film)
Black Dotted Edges
Most cars have a black ceramic edge that is straight and flat, sometimes it will have a dotted edge. These black ceramic dots are quite thick on most cars and prevent the window film from sticking to the area between the dots.This results in a whitish looking strip trimming the glass. Typically this isn’t very noticeable, however some cars have a wide band of dots trimming the top of the rear window. This area is so wide that the whitish looking area created is more pronounced. Unfortunately, the effect is unavoidable.
Seat Belt Chips
Caution should be used when releasing seat belts. Small chips can be made in the window film due to the seat belt hitting the glass as it is released, THIS IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY.
Though we strive for perfection in our installations, due to the nature of the product, some degree of dust contamination and or minor imperfections are present in every window film application, also pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted.
Small silvery looking spots or ‘metal rubs’ on some windows are usually found in station wagons or other utility vehicles, and are caused by a metallic object (such as a baby stroller handle) rubbing against the inner surface of the glass during travel. This rubbing deposits metal onto the glass creating a silver or grey stain. Usually these metal rubs aren’t very noticeable and often aren’t noticed until the windows become tinted
Your windows have been tinted with the finest window film available. Minimal care will assure you years of trouble free benefits.
1) DO NOT wash or roll down windows for four (4) days from the date of installation. When rolling down windows for the first time, roll windows completely down, then raise to full height making sure weather-strip comes up with the window.
2) DO NOT wash with brushes, abrasive cleaners or cleaners containing ammonia. USE SOFT CLOTHS.
3) Water bubbles and haze will disappear during the drying period, although a few small particles or “points” may remain, they are generally only visible from the outside and are inherent to window film adhesives.
4) Bring your vehicle back or call, Should there be any questions or problems
