Dallas is notorious for its hot, humid summers. Most days are sunny, which means you have to be careful about UV rays. But even in your home, UV rays still pose a considerable risk since they can infiltrate your interior by entering your windows. That’s why now is a good time to install UV blocking window film for your Dallas home, before summertime arrives.
Why Is UV Protection Important Indoors?
Often people assume that they only need UV protection when they go outside. They put on sunblock on days when they plan on spending a lot of time outdoors. But what they don’t realize is that UV rays are just as serious when you’re indoors.
UV radiation is carried by the sun. It gets into your home through your windows. So unless you’re slathering on sunscreen every day, you still need UV protection when you’re inside.
What’s more, UV rays are not only a risk to you but also to your home furnishings. They break down dyes at the molecular level, causing carpets, decor, and flooring to fade.
How UV Blocking Window Film for Your Dallas Home Can Help
One of the best ways to limit your exposure to UV rays is with window film. Installing UV blocking window film for your Dallas home can reduce the presence of UV rays indoors by up to 99%.
Using spectrally selective technology, UV blocking film rejects ultraviolet radiation while allowing visible light to pass through. In this way, it keeps your home bright and sunny while reducing your risk of UV radiation exposure.
UV rays are present year round, but during the summer, they’re an even greater risk because people are spending more time outside. The more you’re exposed, the more likely you are to develop eye problems, skin disease, and systemic health issues. That’s why now is a good time to install UV blocking film, before the long, sunny days of summer arrive.
