Temperatures are climbing higher here in Houston. Already, we’ve seen a number of days this year when the high’s have reached into the low to mid 90’s. You know what that means – summer has arrived! Summer means spending time hanging out by the pool, going to the park, and enjoying outdoor activities. Since you’ll be spending more time in the sun, it’s important to take steps to protect your health and limit your exposure to UV rays. UV blocking window film for your Houston home can provide the comprehensive protection you need to stay healthy and enjoy the sun.
Why Should I Worry About UV Rays in My Home?
It’s a common misconception that UV rays are only something to be worried about when we’re outside. We’re told over and over again how important it is to wear sunblock. Yet almost no one talks about the risk of UV exposure indoors! Contrary to popular belief, being inside doesn’t protect you from UV radiation. UV light is still able to enter your home through your windows. Excessive contact with UV rays can cause a number of issues such as:
- Depletes colors and causing carpet and wood floors to fade fast
- Gives furniture a white, bleached look from fading
- Makes the paint on your walls fade quickly
- Causes damage to your skin, hair, and eyes
- Interferes with your immune system
- May lead to aggressive skin cancer
How to Limit Your UV Exposure with Window Film
One of the best ways to limit your exposure to these harmful rays of light is to install UV blocking window film for your Houston home. Window tint acts like a UV shield for your home. It’s able to detect the different types of light and block out the ones you don’t want. UV light bounces off its surface, away from your home, keeping you, your loved ones, and your belongings safe.
