Did you know that window film with UV protection can protect items and people inside your home and office from harmful sun damage? For instance, the 3M™ Sun Control Window Films, Night Vision™ Series significantly blocks the sun’s harmful UV rays from coming inside your home or office, reducing glare on human eyes and protecting skin. In fact, 3M™ Sun Control Window Film blocks UV rays so well that it received the Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation. It accomplishes all of this while letting in natural light and allowing you to see outside both during the day and at night.
In addition to guarding your skin, window film with UV protection can help preserve all the items in your home from the sun’s UV rays. You may not have thought about this before, but the sun’s rays can damage items inside your home for which you’ve invested a lot of money – like expensive artwork, furniture, draperies and flooring. The sun can also damage possessions that have sentimental value that you can’t assign a price to or easily replace—like old photos of cherished loved ones.
UV radiation from sunlight is one of the greatest source of damage to home interiors, followed by harm from heat, humidity, and artificial light.
What Kind of Damage Do UV Rays Cause?
When any type of home furnishing receives sunlight exposure for an extended period of time, the sun’s UV rays will cause fading, discoloration and in some cases, deterioration. Hardwood flooring, for example, is very vulnerable to sun damage. Some types of wood will turn dark when damaged by the sun, while other types will turn light. But only the areas of the floor exposed to the sun will discolor, making the floors look patchy.
Window film with UV protection extends the life of wood flooring and furniture, as well as all your home and office furnishings so you don’t have to replace them as often. This saves you money in the long run. It can also help to preserve your precious mementos so they’ll be around for generations to come.
