It is well known that window films can help you preserve your furnishings and protect them from fading and sun damage. But what many don’t know is window film can also preserve the most important thing: your health.
When we spend long periods outside, especially in the summer, we take measures to protect ourselves. Sunscreen, sunglasses, sun hats, and more are efforts we make to guard against sun damage. What most people don’t know is that we are exposed to the same harmful rays inside that we are outside.
Ultraviolet rays (UV) are electromagnetic rays that are present in sunlight. UV rays are strong and can be damaging to you and your furnishings. It is the cause of conditions like sunburn, eye damage, melanoma, and skin cancer. UV rays can penetrate clouds and come into your home through the windows. In the U.S., more than 9,500 people are diagnosed with skin cancer daily. All of this can be resolved with a simple solution: investing in window film.
Window films can be a hefty investment, but it is ultimately worth it. Experts agree that the best way to prevent skin cancer or other harmful conditions is to guard yourself against radiation. UV rays can affect you in your home, but that doesn’t mean you have to take the measures you do outside. Wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, or sun hats inside seems a little ridiculous. That’s why installing window film is a great way to protect yourself and your family in the comfort of your home.
