You might have been excited to get your car tinted for the first time when you were 18 years old, but as with many things in life, the initial appeal wears off and you now want nothing more than getting rid of your tints. By and large, the durability of your tint film depends on its manufacturing quality, installation technique, and sunlight exposure.
As with anything, you get what you pay for. Car tints manufactured with inferior quality will rapidly deteriorate due to sun exposure and humidity, whereas top quality tinting products can last anywhere from 2-5 years+ when adequately maintained.
The greatest tell tale signs that indicate a need to remove or replace your tints will be your tints turning purple and/or signs of bubbling up. The purple hue comes as a result of non-metallic dyes in the film degrading, and any bubbling is indicative of the adhesive material degrading. The bubbles often begin with the presence of one small air packet, and this quickly leads way to many more.
Let's discuss some DIY techniques commonly used to remove your car's tint:
-Get hold of a fabric steamer, fill it with water, and begging steaming your car windows
-Several moments of steaming is all that is needed to melt the underlying adhesive, allowing the tint to easily peel off
-Make sure to continue steaming while you peel off the film. Finish up by wiping the remaining residue with a soft cloth and window cleaner
2. Soap, Newspaper, and Easy Off
-Using a sponge, apply detergent water to the window, and cover with a newspaper
-Leave this on for an hour, but as the paper begins to dry, reapply soapy water every so often to prolong the presence of moisture
-Use a flat edge to scrape off the top layer of the tint film with long strokes
-Continue repeating this process as long as necessary, and scrape off the tint with the flat head until every bit comes off

As entrepreneurs, we are always seeking ways to improve our business. The one step we can take that offers the greatest bang for your buck is installing window tints for your commercial space. Delaying to take action is detrimental for your business as well as your customers.
Protect your Equipment
Natural sun light has many mood boosting properties, but it poses a great risk to your furniture, flooring, as well as your pricy business equipment. It's all a matter of time before you begin noticing that your equipment appears faded and physically degraded when left near windows. When you have tints installed, you will never again have to worry about facing financial losses from damaged inventory or interiors.
Protect your Staff and Customers
As with physical products, us humans don't make out too well in the prolonged exposure to intense sunlight, which is linked to increased risk of skin cancer, age spots, etc. Provide your staff and customers with the comfort and well being required to keep your business humming. When your office is adequately cooled, your staff will begin to work at full productivity, and "customers" become happy lifelong repeat customers.
When your commercial space is adequately cooled, you will spend significantly less on your cooling expenses. This means lower cooling costs, as well as less wear and tear on your AC unit. Commercial window tinting is a wise investment which translates to increased operating revenue for your business.
Professionally tinted windows will provide a nice sleeker look to your windows- both inside and out. It goes without saying that tinting will preserve the appearance of your goods and equipment as well. Our tints come in a spectrum containing different shades of darkness, so if you prefer a more conservative look, we also have tints that do not darken your windows as well.
With all its advantages, it's hard to imagine any reason to not seek out professional commercial window tint. Although this will come at a cost, it will more than compensate for it in the long run.

We all enjoy the presence of natural light in our homes, but it is outweighed by a major pitfall: the UV ray. Not only does it damage our wood, frabric and leather furniture, it also increases our risk for skin cancer.
Well I'm delighted to inform you that you can have your cake and eat it too! That's right, you can enjoy natural sun light, while mitigating most of the harmful aspects of the harsh UV rays, by utilizing the services of a professional residential tinting service. Now that summer is in full swing, homeowners in the Yonkers area are using our window tinting services to keep their homes cool while also enjoying natural light.
Sunlight penetrates your home primarily through the window panes, which offers no filtration of the aforementioned damaging UV rays, which will eventually degrade your furniture, carpets and/or wooden floors, not to mention the increased risk of skin cancer. Residential window tinting reduces the amount of UV radiation by as much as 99%, which goes a long way in protecting your property value and your skin health.
The increased sunshine-driven heat may be an asset during the cooler months, but not so much during the dog days of summer, when the indoors can be unbearably hot unless you are prepared to pay up for increased cooling costs as your AC system struggles to compensate for all that heat. Residential tinting services will help cool your home in a very economic manner by blocking those pesky UV rays, thereby lowering your energy consumption.
Another disadvantage to having window panes with no tinting is the incredible amount of glare present when the sun is out, making it difficult to view your TV screen or your computer. Tinting helps remove the glare, allow you to enjoy using your devices in sun-lit rooms at any time of the day.
Today we've covered the major reasons- the energy savings, home interior protection, glare reduction, why our customers have opted to invest in our professional window tinting services. If you are seeking professional residential window tinting in the Yonkers area, we will be happy to serve you!
