Once you have made the investment in home solar tint and have been enjoying the many benefits involved, the last thing you want to do is damage it or shorten its life through improper cleaning and maintenance. The good news is that you’ll find it easy to care for your new window tint and may even enjoy it more than you did keeping up with untreated windows. It can vary depending on the brand of home solar tint you have, and your installer will be your best source for specific information, but here are a few tips that are generally the case.

Home Solar Tint

First, don’t be concerned if you notice less than clear results in the initial few days. It is common to experience some haziness due to the installation process. It is caused by moisture that will disappear before too long.

The next thing you’ll notice is that your home solar tint won’t accumulate dirt as quickly as the window glass did. That is because glass is more porous than you might think so it collects dirt fairly readily. Tint, on the other hand, isn’t as porous so you won’t have to clean it as often.

Another benefit you’ll enjoy is that you won’t need to use a glass cleaning product. You generally can if you wish, but it won’t be necessary. A soft cloth or paper towel is all that is needed along with a simple solution of water and a mild dishwashing liquid. The use of a window squeegee can also make quick work of window cleaning. If you use a glass cleaning product, make sure you don’t use anything with ammonia.  Innovative Solar Control Inc. has the very latest in window cleaning products available for purchase!

As far as maintenance goes, most home solar tint doesn’t need you to do anything to enjoy continued benefits from the tint. Some will suggest using a silicone polish on an interior home solar tint to keep it looking new.
