If you ever notice that your window tints are dirty, you must clean them right away because allowing dirt and filth to remain on your windows will damage your tint and will ruin its quality. Cleaning your window tint is very important but knowing how to clean it is equally as important because doing it right will make a very big difference. It is a task that needs to be done carefully; otherwise, you may ruin your tint.
The first step is to ensure you have all of the right tools, so make sure you are prepared. This needs to be done before you begin washing your window tint so that you have everything you need for a smooth process. You will need cleaning products, including ammonia-free soap and microfibre towels. This type of soap is the best product to use when cleaning your window tint because it will prevent it from becoming damaged. Cheap soap and other chemical cleaners can lead to problems, so you need to use the right products. Paper towels or abrasive cottons should also be avoided because these, too, can damage the tint, so stick to microfibre towels because they are soft and they absorb a lot of water. Ideally, you should have two towels so that you can use one for washing and the other for drying.
Once you have everything you need, you can go ahead and apply your ammonia-free soap to the outside and inside of your windows with your microfibre cloth. Cover your entire window and dry it immediately unless you are dealing with stubborn grime, which may require a second application. When drying your window, fold your cloth so that you can reach all of the surfaces, even the smaller ones. Try to move the cloth in the same direction as the way the soap was applied and use the right amount of pressure when wiping it down because this will help your window tint dry faster and better.
These simple steps above will help you clean your window tint and this is very important to do if you want to maintain it. Cleaning it regularly will extend the lifespan of your tint so that you can enjoy it for many years and will prevent dirt from accumulating. Do not try any shortcuts when cleaning and never apply a product you’re unfamiliar with because you can damage your tint and negatively affect its quality. It is recommended that you clean your window tint every week so that you maintain the quality of your windows and this is especially important to do after a snowstorm or heavy rain.
