Is the window frosting film install on the inside or the outside of the glass? We prefer to apply it on the inside but the film is designed for indoor and outdoor use. Please Note: Applying the film to the outside will greatly reduce the life of the film.
How do I clean the film after installation? The window frosting needs to cure for one (1) week before you can use any window cleaner on it. Small air bubbles will disappear automatically after a certain period of time. The window frosting is a soft material, therefore the maintenance shall only be executed with non-scouring cleaning agents, without strong solvents or corrosive ingredients and we advise you not to clean with a high-pressure cleaner. Window lean or dish-wash liquid in water with a soft cloth should be sufficient.
What is the life expectancy and guarantee on the window frosting? 4-5 Years with a two week workmanship guarantee.
Does your window frosted film block UV rays, to stop fading my furniture, carpet, etc. ? To some extent, yes. The film is primarily for decoration and privacy purposes. It is important to understand there are multiple causes for fading, UV rays, visible light, infrared rays, heat, and our films do reduce all of them to some extent depending on which film is selected.
Will window frosted film give me privacy during the day, as well as the night? Yes, the decorative films will give you privacy day and night, however if you have the light on inside at night and you walk by the window, people outside might be able to see your silhouette.
