How to Protect Your Furnishings and Your Health with 3M Window Film

Have you ever noticed that a piece of furniture of your flooring has begun to fade by being exposed to the sun through a nearby window? Many of us love the open feeling that windows without curtains, shades or blinds offer, but that open feeling comes at a cost. The UV rays from the sun that stream through the windows are a major contributor to the fading you have noticed. Not only that, those same UV rays can also be harmful to your health. While most of us wouldn’t think of spending a significant amount of time in the sun without some form of protection, we often spend hours near windows without giving it a thought. The answer is 3M Window Film.

3M Window Films will filter over 99% of the UV rays from coming through your windows which will help extend the life of your furnishings and also protect your skin. In fact, 3M Window Films have earned The Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. If you don’t think this is a problem to take seriously, here is what Perry Robins, MD, President of The Skin Cancer Foundation has to say on this issue;

“To see the damage that untreated glass can do, take a close look at the furnishings in your home that are hit by direct sunlight. If the sun has faded the color of your sofa, it can just as easily damage your skin when you sit there.”
