There’s a lot of effort involved with furnishing a home. You spend hours browsing different options online and in-store, trying to find the perfect furniture. Perhaps you’ve even spent money on an interior decorator or design consultant. The last thing you want is for your beautiful furniture to be ruined by the sun. Fade prevention window film offers San Antonio homeowners a way to protect their furniture from the sun and prevent fading.


What Causes Furniture to Fade?

Before we go any further, let’s talk a little bit about why fading happens in the first place. In short, fading is a direct result of contact with ultraviolet radiation. You know that being in the sun too long can damage your skin and give you a sunburn. Well, the same concept applies to your furniture.

Furniture that is exposed to UV light that comes in through the windows of your home is at risk of fading. Once UV rays come into contact with furniture, they destroy the dyes (natural and man-made) that produce color. In the scientific world, this process is referred to as “photodegradation.”


How Fade Prevention Window Film Protects San Antonio Homes

If you want to prevent fading in your home, you need to protect your furniture from UV rays. Of course, this is easier said than done. UV light is all around us. And unless you block out every window and turn your home into a bat cave, it’s still going to get inside.

That’s why you need UV blocking window film for your San Antonio home. UV blocking window tint creates a shield for your home that protects it from fade-causing radiation. UV rays are kept out, but visible light is not, so you don’t have to worry about it making your home dark.
