Window Tint Care

With proper care, windows that have been tinted will last you a long time and the initial 48-72 hours following the tint job are critical in this regard.

DO NOT ROLL DOWN THE WINDOWS FOR 48 HOURS!!!

Enough said.

This will ruin your tint job! That’s why we put the tape over the window controls.

Window Film Curing

Keep in mind that tinted window films take several days to completely cure. Moisture that remains between the window film and the glass after installation can cause a hazy, streaky, or blotchy appearance. After this moisture has evaporated, your tinted windows should have excellent clarity. 

During the curing period, be extra careful about any physical contact with your window tinting film. Allow your window tinting to fully cure before washing or interacting with your windows.

Cleaning Tinted Windows

We recommend that you wait 3-5 days after window film has been installed before cleaning. Then use a window cleaner that is ammonia-free and a soft microfiber cloth. Dripping Auto Pros recommends cleaning with a foam cleanser, as they do not typically streak and are usually ammonia-free, or a mixture of 50% distilled water and 50% isopropyl alcohol. Never scrape window film with any type of blade or clean your tinted windows with anything harsh or abrasive. This will scratch the film. Using compatible cleaners with a microfiber cloth will ensure you do not accidentally damage your window tint during the cleaning process.
