Why Your Dallas Home Furnishings Need Protection From UV Rays
Even here in Texas, where it almost never gets cold, you can tell that spring is here and people are excited about summer. The hot and bright days of summer are fast approaching and as a Texan, you likely love the sun–that is why you live here. That is a good thing too because we get plenty of it. However, as wonderful as the Texas sun is, it is pretty well known that the sun’s rays are anything but harmless–in fact, they are downright dangerous to human skin and home furnishings. That’s right, those sun rays pouring through your home windows have a pretty significant downside–the harmful UV rays and radiation they bring with them. They are severely detrimental to you and what’s more, for almost every item, big and small, in your Dallas home too. UV rays cause furniture, flooring, upholstery, and artwork to fade and deteriorate-quickly and forever. There simply is no fixing sun damage, so all those items you have worked so hard to furnish your home with are all but lost. However, there is something you can do to protect them because just like there is sunblock for your skin, there is a sunblock (of sorts) for your home furnishings too in the form of–window tinting.
How Window Film Works To Protect Your Dallas Home Furnishings From The Sun
Fading and discoloration are horrible and eventually lead to the deterioration of wood, fabric, or paint itself. This type of damage is conclusively linked directly to the effects of sunlight on your belongings. The three main components of sunlight that destroy your home furnishings and accessories are UVA rays, UVB rays, and infrared radiation. Even when it is overcast UV rays are actively working to harm your furnishings. This is why you need protection from the sun 24/7, all year long–especially in Texas where the sun never really goes away. The only and best solution to furniture fading and wood floors is window film. It blocks 99.9% of rays and radiation–Low-E windows only block about 85%. This is because Low E windows, while effective at keeping heat in, leave much to be desired when dealing with intense solar radiation i.e. UV, UVA, and UVB rays. The best part about using a quality window film like Vista, 3M or Llumar, to reject 99.9% of the sun’s harmful rays and protect your furnishings is there is never a loss of view or clarity. Actually, window film improves your view because it stops the glare that would normally make keeping the curtains open impossible.
