Once you’ve gone through the process of getting window tinting for car, you’ll most likely want to make sure you take good care of it. Knowing how to maintain your tinting will not only ensure that it remains effective for years to come, but this will also help to maintain the overall look of the tint, and that’s just as important.
Because your tinting comes with a scratch resistant coating, you might assume that it won’t really matter what type of cleaning materials you use, but this is a common mistake. Abrasive materials can still harm your tinting because the coating is only for normal wear and tear; it doesn’t protect against cleaning with steel sponges, for example. You might not be aware of it, but there are cleaning agents that can be just as abrasive as this material, including baking soda. Only ever use ordinary, soapy water to clean your tinting and you will save yourself the trouble of having to have your tinting reinstalled.
When you’re picking out your cloth, make sure that it is soft, and you might want to invest in a rubber squeegee to help you dry the glass quickly and easily; this is easy to do and it will prevent the cleaning agent from streaking your windows. Be sure not to use a squeegee that contains a sharp metal edge, or this could end up gouging into the film.
Use Microfiber Cloths
If you have ever used a microfiber cloth to clean your vehicle, for instance, you’ll most likely be aware that these products are designed to pick up dust and dirt without scratching the surface of the car. Putting this type of product to use on your tinted windows might actually be a great idea, particularly if you don’t want to spend hours trying to polish your windows afterwards. With this product, you will require little more than water to maintain your tinting, and when it comes to these types of jobs, the simplest way is always the best option.
