How to Clean Tinted Car Windows
Here at The Best Detail, one of the most common reasons of detailing damage we hear about is improper DIY projects. That isn’t to say that cleaning your car yourself is not recommended or that it’s a bad idea. In fact, that’s far from the truth.
It is certainly important to maintain your car throughout the year, even between the times you have it professionally detailed. That will ensure that you are caring for your care to the highest degree possible, which will result in a longer life expectancy, increased car value, and great aesthetics. Since we regard cleaning education as one of the most helpful services we provide, we have decided to share our knowledge on our site so that it may be available for a much wider audience.
For this online resource we would like to cover the recommended way to clean tinted car windows. If you have any questions or are interested in us covering a specific topic, definitely get in touch with us at (702) 494-8097 and we will be more than happy to help.
The Recommended Way to Clean Tinted Car Windows
If you live in Las Vegas then you likely know how easy it is for your tinted windows to become covered in dust and debris. But did you know that many general cleaners, tinting solutions, and cleaning techniques can actually further damage your darkened glass? Did you know that most tinted window damage is not apparent at first, but it sets in over time?
In order to understand the exact type of cleaning that darkened windows require, we must first consider how these windows are made. Tinted windows use a Mylar film, which is essentially plastic, to cover regular glass and provide a much higher degree of privacy and protection from the bright sun. While this material has great features for privacy, it doesn’t have the best features for durability. Mylar is easily scratched, and it can even tear and fade over time. To avoid fading is best accomplished by not using ammonia-cleaning products on tinted windows and regularly cleaning your car.
Intermittent or improper tinted window cleaning will lead to tint becoming a purple color, weakening, becoming brittle, and even cracking off. Furthermore, many types of tinted car window sprays utilize chemicals that are harmful when breathed in. When you’re cleaning your car it’s important that you look out for your car, as well as for your own health. It’s not worth damaging either or because of ignorance or rushing into a project without the right tools.
Here at The Best Detail, in addition to making sure that your car and our technicians are properly taken care of, we also look out for protecting the environment. We accomplish this by making sure that all of our employees are extensively background and credential checked. This gives us and you the peace of mind that you deserve, knowing that a professional you can trust is working on your car with the right tools, solutions, and techniques. We also have an in-house training program that guarantees all of our technicians work together as one team, and they provide the same consistent results every-time. They are also trained in safe cleaning measures, both for their own health and for preventing run-off into nearby drains, streams, and other sources of drinking water for our community and animals.
Avoid These Things While Cleaning Tinted Car Windows
While cleaning your windows you should avoid using soap on them, no matter if they’re tinted or not. Unless if your soap is specially designed for your type of window, it will leave residue and soap stains on your windows. Or, at the very least, it will create ten times the workload for your DIY cleaning because you’ll have to spend so much extra time on rinsing your car.
Another thing you should avoid is using a cloth that isn’t brand new. Cloths that have already been used to clean the exterior or windows of cars can be full of other chemicals, debris, and dust that you do not want to rub into your window tint film. Essentially, it’s a great idea to avoid any type of cleaning cloth that is not made out of a microfiber material.
