Upon initial installation of your new film, you may see some of the following conditions:

  • Small water bubbles
  • Streaks or somewhat off-color film
  • Hazy or milky appearance

Do not be alarmed by any of these temporary conditions, they are all part of the curing process and will
disappear within the 90-day curing period.

Please do not clean your windows within the first 90 days. The film needs to cure and properly adhere to
the glass before any cleaning is to be done.

There will be a thin light line around your film. This allows for expansion and is in line with proper
installation instructions. Also, on occasion, there may be a small grain of dust or lint captured under the
film that cannot be avoided. After the film has cured, it should not be easily noticed. If there are any
imperfections, such as scratches on the glass before the film is installed, they may be highlighted after the film is installed.


New window film can easily be cleaned by mixing a few drops of dish detergent (Dawn or Johnsons Baby
Shampoo) to a quart of water in a spray bottle. Use a soft cloth, sponge, or squeegee to clean the film.
Do not use anything harsh or abrasive on your new film, as it will leave scratches. Also, never use strong
chemicals such as alcohol, bleach, or ammonia on your film. Never use scrapers, knives, or anything sharp, as it will damage the film. It is never a good idea to put any kind of tape or adhesive on your film, but if this happens, you can mix 1tsp. of baking soda to a quart of water using a soft cloth or sponge to remove adhesive.

Note: Not following these careful instructions can (in most cases) void your warranty.
