Your home is your happy place, and you’ve worked hard to fill it with the people and things you love. While you consider the many different ways you can keep your home and family safe, don’t forget about the sun! The threat of harmful UV rays is real – your family and belongings are at risk for damage every day the sun shines. What can you do to prevent this? Read on!
The sun is relentless. While you’re enjoying a bright, warm, sun-drenched home… the sun is working silently to damage your furnishings. Your leather couch, wood floors, expensive artwork and more are constantly being blasted with harmful rays that can fade and discolor them. Don’t settle for bulky window treatments that darken the room, making you feel closed in… invest in window film! Window film will deflect heat, enhance your view, increase the efficiency of your windows and block up to 99.9% of the damaging UV rays plaguing your home as we speak. Ask your local Genie to explain his or her fading chart during your free estimate… Window Genie offers a variety of window film sure to fit your home’s needs and budget.
More importantly, in addition to harming your furnishings, the sun can damage your family’s skin! You may equate the term “carcinogens” to things like chemicals, pollutants or even fake sugar. But did you know, UV radiation from our very own sun is a proven human carcinogen? Fun in the sun? Yeah right! Sun damage is much more than early wrinkles and dry skin. The sun is the leading cause of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. So deadly in fact, that according to skincancer.org, one person dies of melanoma every hour. There are plenty of ways to protect yourself. Wearing protective clothing or a daily sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher significantly reduces sun damage… but you shouldn’t just think to protect yourself while you’re outdoors! The sun can damage your skin when you least expect it, like when you’re washing dishes in front of the kitchen window or reading a book in your four season porch.
UV rays make up only a marginal portion of the sun’s rays, which explains why sun exposure has dichotomous effects on the human body. You need sunlight for vitamin D and healthy skin, and yet it is a leading cause of skin cancer; how do you get the good without the bad? Window film can and will protect you and your family’s skin against harmful UV rays, blocking up to 99.9% of them in fact! Our window films keep you safe in a number of ways, yet are non-invasive. Our window film will not obstruct your favorite views in any way. Our glue-free adhesive system makes for a seamless film that will actually enhance your view as glare is reduced by up to 85%, minimizing eye strain. Our window film is easy to maintain, with our adhesive system tolerant of even the strongest cleaners, our film resistant to scratching, and your warranty keeping the coating in pristine condition for life on residential installations.
More importantly, Window Genie keeps your family safe and healthy indoors. Enjoy the warmth, nourishment, and illumination of natural indoor sunlight without the health risks, as our window films provide up to 99.9% UV protection. This will keep your pets, guests, and loved ones safe, even while it reduces the fading that flooring, furniture, and curtains will show if left in the sun over long periods of time. The importance of window film is only increasing as we spend more and more time indoors, bouncing between the office and the home every day.
Though it may have seemed like a stretch when you first read it, it should not be clear that Window Genie is an important ally to have in the fight against skin cancer. We are more than a residential and commercial pressure washing, window cleaning, and gutter maintenance company.
