How do you remove UV Film from Glass Windows?
Removing UV Film from glass windows is not as easy as it looks.
The main problem is the age of the film and the fact that the film was applied to reduce UV rays coming into your home, hence it is normally only applied to your North, East and West windows that are getting the most UV sun rays.
And since glass is porous the UV film over time will bake itself into your glass windows.
The film does do it’s job, as in preventing UV rays from damaging your carpet, furniture or paintings and most UV films will last 10 years, however as time goes on you may find that mildew or mould is starting to appear on your windows that have the UV film on it.
The dilemma you now have is the mould is actually between the film and your windows and doesn’t matter how hard you try to clean your windows you won’t be able to remove the mould or mildew.
Hence you now need to remove the UV Film from your windows so you can clean the mould from your windows.
