Have you ever stopped to take a closer look at your area rug or couch? Have you noticed some signs of fading, especially where the sunlight hits these items? Everything — from your couch to the artwork on your walls — can be damaged by the sun. Here’s what you need to know about why this fading happens, and what you can do to prevent it.
What Causes Sun Fading?
The warm, cozy sunlight flowing through your home’s windows contains a surprising danger — radiation. UVA and UVB rays as well as infrared radiation are all damaging to the furnishings, flooring and art in your home, and these easily enter in through your windows. In fact, the main culprits, UVA and UVB rays, are responsible for about 45 percent of the damage you see in your home.
This information is not a surprise to a number of people. In fact, all of the research and information available about skin cancer risks has caused more and more people to be aware of the problems with UV radiation. However, UVA and UVB radiation are only responsible for less than half of the fading to your furnishings. Another problem is infrared heat radiation. A full quarter of the fading you notice may be due to seemingly harmless heat from the sunlight filtering in through your windows. For this reason, you need a solution that addresses both types of danger.
How UV Window Film Can Help Prevent Sun Damage
If you’re concerned about sun damage to your valuable belongings, then it’s time to consider residential window tinting as a solution. Modern window tint products can reduce UV ray exposure and help provide heat control, tackling two of the major reasons for fading to your belongings. Whether you’re looking for furniture protection or wood floor protection, Rayno has you covered!
The first way window tint helps is by blocking UV radiation. Many products claim to do this, but some will only block a portion of the UV rays. Rayno Window Film’s architectural window tint blocks 99 percent of UV radiation, including both UVA and UVB rays, helping to protect everything and everyone inside your home.
Second, our window film can help reduce the amount of heat gained from the sunlight streaming through your windows, as well as heat loss from heat energy escaping through the windows. This combination helps keep your home comfortable while reducing the damage to your furniture caused by heat and infrared radiation. You are left with beautiful, natural light, and no fear of damage to your belongings.
