How to Prevent Furniture Fading

As the grey skies start to break up and we work our way further towards spring, the extra sunshine will be a welcome sight. Unfortunately, with added brightness comes potential for fading materials inside your home. Damaging UV rays can fade fabrics, furniture, carpets, rugs, drapes, artwork, and even your hardwood flooring.

To protect your home’s interiors against harmful rays and still allow good light inside, consider adding a layer of protective window film onto your existing glass. While fading cannot be fully prevented, adding window film can significantly increase the life of your belongings and drastically reduce the damaging impacts of sunlight.

Even if your room doesn’t get a lot of direct sunlight doesn’t mean it’s not being exposed to harmful UV light. UV rays are reflected all around us and are present even when windows aren’t being hit directly by sunlight. In fact, even on cloudy or rainy days there’s a significant amount of UV light hitting your home and possessions.

You don’t have to live in the dark to protect your possessions, either. While the rule of thumb is the darker your window film is, the better it’ll guard against UV light, but most window films won’t even noticeably darken your room. Drawing the blinds or drapes will still result in fading – not to mention result in a dark, dour feeling in your home during the day.
