Applying window film to glass doors and windows around your home can help reduce glare, block UV rays, and reduce energy costs by reducing solar heat gain. Follow these steps for application:
Clean the glass thoroughly, making sure you get in the corners and around the edges without leaving any lint on the surface.
Measure and cut the film about an inch larger than the dimensions of the glass you’re covering.
As you separate the film from the liner, spray it with a soap and water mixture. The glass should also be coated with this solution before you apply the film to the glass.
Use a small squeegee or old credit card to force out the liquid and air trapped beneath the film. Work your way from the center outward so the bubbles disappear at the edges.
Wrap the squeegee with a paper towel to dry the surface before cutting off the excess around the edges with a utility knife.
