Do  You Need Sun Protection For Your Home Furnishings?  The Answer Is ABSOLUTELY!

Summer in San Jose is approaching and that means one thing for people here–the hot, hot summer sun. While the sunshine is lovely and affords us many long days of things to do outside, this same sun on the windows of your San Jose home will get downright uncomfortable, hot and destructive. In fact, the sun shining all day, every day into your San Jose home has a pretty significant downside–the harmful UV rays and radiation the bring. You surely know that UV rays are bad for human skin but the sun also causes damage to every item in your home big and small. That’s right, UV rays cause furniture, flooring, upholstery, and artwork to fade and deteriorate fast. Thankfully, just like there is sunblock for your skin, there is an efficient and powerful way to block the sun from damaging your home called window tinting.

How Window Film Works To Protect Your San Jose Home Furnishings From The Sun

Fading, discoloration and the consistent destruction of wood, fabric, or paint itself are the direct results of sunlight beating down on your home furnishings. The three main components of sunlight at work here are UVA rays, UVB rays, and infrared radiation. You may think that sun damage is something that happens over a long period of time but sun bleaching happens fast and there is no remediation for floors or fabric. This is why you need protection from the sun that works 365 days a year here in San Jose. Luckily the installation of window film is a cost-effective way to protect yourself and the things you own from the sun. It blocks 99.9% of rays and radiation. (Low-E windows, for example, only block about 85%). The best part about using a quality window film like Vista, 3M or Llumar, is your view of the lovely bay area stays the same but with 99.9% protection from the sun’s rays. In fact, window film works to improves views because it stops the glare that would normally render these windows useless or force you to draw the curtains.
