Use Window Film to Protect Your Salt Lake City Home from Fading

Use Window Film to Protect Your Salt Lake City Home from Fading

Furnishing a home is expensive. Because of the increased demand for building materials, prices for furniture have gone up in 2021. The last thing you want is to buy a bunch of expensive furniture, rugs, and artwork and watch them get damaged by the sun.

By installing window film for your Salt Lake City home, you can prevent fading and keep your interior in “like new” condition.

Below, we’ve discussed the benefits of fade prevention window film and its unique UV blocking ability.

How Fading Occurs in Furniture

You would think that because your furniture is indoors and there’s a roof over it, it’s safe from the sun. But this actually is far from true. Fading still happens in interior spaces. This is because sunlight gets through the windows and is still able to reach furniture and floors.

Both UVA and UVB rays are responsible for fading. UVB rays are considered to be more damaging because they’re more carcinogenic, but the number of UVA rays in the sun far exceeds UVB. Just like with our skin, when these rays of light come into contact with dyes, floors, and furniture, they cause major damage. Fading is a result of this exposure.

Protect Your Home with UV Blocking Window Film

Especially in a sunny place like Salt Lake City, it’s important to be aware of UV rays and to take steps to protect yourself and your home from sun exposure. One of the best ways to do this is by installing UV blocking window film.

UV blocking window film stops ultraviolet radiation from getting through windows, preventing it from reaching furniture, flooring, and interior spaces. And, best of all, it provides this protection without blocking natural light.

It’s a great way to protect:

  • wall art and rugs
  • books and antiques
  • wood floors
  • carpets
  • clothing
  • sofas and lounge chairs
  • leather and fabric
