Here at Innovative Solar Control Inc., we specialize in window tinting of all kinds. Over the years, we have encountered many myths and misconceptions about window tinting, and we want to do our part to set the record straight. In this article, we will go over a few common myths about window tinting and correct them with accurate information to ensure you can make an informed decision on the matter.

Common Myths About Window Tinting

•  Myth: Window tinting makes your space too dark. The idea that window tinting makes the interior of a space too dark is likely based on early window films, which did tend to block too much light and make spaces look gloomy. However, modern window tinting films are designed to block UV rays rather than visible light, and if they block visible light at all, it will only be to reduce harsh glare on your screens. Otherwise, your home, office building, or car will remain just as light as ever.

•  Myth: Tinted windows are harder to clean. Windows treated with our window tinting films can be cleaned just as easily as any other window. However, we do recommend that you use a microfiber cloth and avoid using ammonia-based cleaners on your tinted windows in order to keep the films in the best possible condition.

•  Myth: Window tinting films eventually bubble and crack. Any bubbles you may have seen in window tinting films are likely the result of improper installation, rather than age. Our team can install your tinting films so that adhere perfectly to the windows and blend in with the glass of the panes.
