At the same time, with the economy in what seems to be a perpetual state of recession, you need to make money in any way possible. In this article, I will share with you how you can achieve both of those goals with the use of window privacy film.


How Window Privacy Film Can Protect Your Place Of Business From Crime

When I speak of an act of crime being perpetrated on a place of business, I am referring to an act of burglary, with someone breaking into the place and stealing valuable equipment. It might not have occurred to you yet, but window privacy film might be able to keep this from happening to you. Window privacy film works by keeping people on the outside from seeing inside your home or place of business. Most enterprising criminals will scout a place out before deciding to break into it. This will almost always involve looking through the windows to see if there is anything inside that is worth stealing. After all, why take the risk of jail time by breaking into a place, only to find nothing in there that’s worth taking? If you have privacy window film installed on the windows of your place of business, then a would-be burglar would have no idea as to what’s on the other side of the window. In this particular instance, he would be more likely to leave your place alone and search for a more promising target. Keep in mind that if the burglar is still determined to break into your place of business, then the film will not stop him from doing so. It will just make him less likely to do it.

Another benefit that comes with the use of many window privacy films is improved shatter resistance. Window films that are designed for this purpose will keep your window from shattering into flying shards that could seriously hurt you or your customers in the event of a violent storm or an act of vandalism. Note that the film will not prevent your windows from breaking, it will just keep the glass from shattering and flying everywhere.

Another benefit that your business can get with the use of window film privacy comes from the fact that you can get your film in many different colors with an infinite number of designs on it. If your window film has really loud colors with a very catchy design, then it might turn some heads and draw the attention of potential customers who drive by your business, or walk past it en route to somewhere else. You know as well as I do, that with most businesses, the hardest part is getting people in the door. In this respect, window privacy film can help you do that. By helping to bring more traffic into your business, window privacy film can help your business bring in more revenue, making it more profitable and successful.

How To Remove Old Or Damaged Window Film Privacy From Your Windows


You have some window film privacy that has been installed on your windows for quite some time. It’s starting to show some signs of wear and tear, such as scratching and discoloration due to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. It’s starting to look rather unsightly. On top of that, you’re thinking about changing the designs that are on the film. This means that you need to replace the privacy window film that is on your windows. In order to replace your film, the first thing that you have to do is to remove it from the windows. Depending on the type of window film that you have, this may be quite easy or rather difficult. In this article, I will outline a general procedure by which you can remove most types of window film privacy.


Removing Static Cling Privacy Window Film

If you have static cling window film on your windows right now, then you’re in luck. This is because most kinds of static cling window privacy film can be removed quite easily due to the fact that they rely solely on static electricity in order to stay on the window. No messy or cumbersome adhesives are involved. A lot of times, all that you have to do is to peel the film off of the window, starting at the corners and working diagonally across the window. You might need to use a sharp razor blade in order to get it started, but once it gets started, the film will usually come right off. If you do need to use a razor blade, then you need to be extremely careful that you don’t scratch the window. If the film comes off in one piece, then you can use it on another window if you want to, assuming that it is in good enough condition. If your window film is particularly stubborn, and the above procedure doesn’t work, then you can try wetting the film down with water from a spray bottle, or you can apply heat from a hairdryer. The heat will make the film pliable, which should help you get it off of the window.

Removing Privacy Window Films With Adhesives

If your privacy window film has adhesives on it, then your task will probably be a bit more difficult. In order to remove your film, you will need to get a spray bottle that is filled with an ammonia-based glass cleaning solution. You should also cover up any surfaces that are adjacent to the window in order to avoid spilling ammonia on them. You can do this with a sheet of plastic or cloth. You might even want to wear goggles and gloves while applying the ammonia.

However, before using any ammonia, you should first try to remove the film by peeling it at the corners and working diagonally across the window. You can use a razor blade to help you do this. Just don’t scratch the window with it. If there is still film left on your window after this, and there probably will be, then spray the ammonia on it, as well as where the film broke off when you were peeling it. Then, let the ammonia sit on the film for a while before doing anything else. This will allow the ammonia time to soak into the film and break down the adhesive that is keeping it on the window. You can let it sit for an hour or even longer to allow for this to happen. Some have even drenched their film with the ammonia and let it sit overnight.

After the ammonia-coated film has had time to sit, spray the film again with the ammonia and start trying to peel it off the window. It should come off a lot easier. You can use the razor blade here if you need to. Try to keep the blade on the film rather than on the window.


Once you get all of the film off, there will almost certainly be some residue left on your window from the adhesive. You can spray the window with the solution again, and that should take care of the residue, and make your window ready to go for your next sheet of window privacy film. If you haven’t considered it yet, then now would be the perfect time to consider using a static cling window film so that you won’t have to deal with any adhesive the next time you have to remove the film.

Now, you are armed with a procedure that will help you remove that old or damaged window film from your windows, so that you can put on something that is brand new and more visually appealing.


How To Repair Minor Cosmetic Issues On Your Privacy Window Film


After doing some careful research and talking with friends who have privacy window film installed on their windows, you made the decision to purchase and install some of your own window film. So far, you really like the way that it looks and you can’t wait until the benefits of owning the film really start to kick in. However, there are some minor cosmetic issues that you might encounter along the way. In this article, I will discuss three of the most commonly encountered cosmetic problems with privacy window film and how you can repair them so that your film will continue to look and function at its best.


Repairing Scratches On Your Privacy Window Film

Scratches constitute the most frequently encountered cosmetic problem with window privacy film. Plastic window film scratches quite easily, most often from people who brush up against it, or from things that are thrown against the window. If you have young children like me, then you can probably relate to that one. These scratches can really take away from the appearance of your window film and may even negate one of the biggest reasons why you installed it in the first place. The good news for you is that there is a neat way that you can repair these scratches so that you don’t ever see them again. If your film gets scratched, then apply some clear fingernail polish to the affected areas on the film. However, when using the polish, be very careful to confine it to the affected areas only. This technique has been found to work quite well on automotive window tinting films as well as on home privacy window film.

How To Deal With Peeling

After a while, you may notice that some of your film is beginning to peel away from the window, especially in the corners of the window. This can often be attributed to condensation or the loss of static charge in between the window and the film. One way in which you can resolve this problem is by wetting the peeling film down with a squirt bottle. Once you’ve done that, press the film back against the window and dry it off with a soft cloth. The rubbing from the drying of the film should generate enough of a static charge that will keep the film on the window so that it won’t peel anymore. If that won’t do the trick, then you can heat the film with a hairdryer. The heat will make the film tacky and pliable so that it will conform and adhere to the surface to which you apply it. Once the film becomes pliable and tacky, remove the heat and press the film against the window. Just be careful not to overheat the film. Otherwise, you might have to replace the entire sheet.


What To Do About Those Air Bubbles

Over time, you might start to notice the appearance of tiny air bubbles that crop up in between the film and the window. While some of these air bubbles might result from human error that takes place during installation, most of the smaller ones will result from either condensation or thermal expansion and contraction. The best way to deal with these tiny air bubbles is to pierce them with a sharp razor knife. Piercing the bubble will release the air within the bubble and pull the film back against the window where it belongs. The mark from the bubble and the puncturing will eventually disappear.

Scratches, air bubbles, and peeling are three of the most commonly encountered issues when dealing with window film privacy. However, now you are equipped to deal with these issues in the event that any of them arise.

Window Privacy Film



After reviewing the benefits of privacy window film elsewhere on this website, you have decided that you would like to know more about it, and possibly buy some of your own. In this article, I will discuss how you can determine what kind of window privacy film is best for you, how you can get good deals on it, and how to clean your window film after you’ve had it installed for a while.

So, Why Are You Buying Window Privacy Film?

The answer to this question may seem obvious, but there are other reasons why you might want to buy some window privacy film for your home or office. This is because many of the window films that are on the market today offer benefits that go way beyond just keeping people on the outside of your home from seeing inside. These benefits include protecting curtains and other interior items from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, heat rejection and heat retention capabilities that keep heat from traveling through your windows, glare reduction, room darkening, and decoration. If any of these benefits are important to you, then you need to select a window film that is going to give you those benefits, as no two window films are the same. So, when selecting a window film, deciding what benefits are the most important to you is the first step in the process.


Types Of Window Privacy Film

There are several different types of window privacy film that you can use on your home or in your office. Each type has its own unique set of advantages and disadvantages. Frosted window film gives your windows the appearance of frosted glass at just a fraction of the price. This type of film can give you 24-hour privacy, along with many of the other benefits discussed above. For this reason, it is also used on shower enclosures, often giving it the nickname of bathroom window privacy film. Frosted window privacy film is used quite often in decorative applications where the film may show neat designs like etched leaf patterns and floral designs. Perhaps, the main drawback to using this film is that while it keeps people on the outside from seeing inside, it also keeps you from seeing outside. The film comes in varying degrees of frost by which you can control how well you can see outside, but remember that that works the same way on the outside too.

Stained glass window film is another widely used form of decorative window film privacy. You can get stained glass window film in a wide variety of colors, with an infinite number of designs. One of the places where stained glass is most common is at the local church, where the multi-colored windows add color to any light that comes through. This film has the same effect on your windows without you having to buy expensive stained glass windows. The different colors and designs on the film can make it very difficult for someone on the outside of your home who is trying to see inside.


One way window privacy film, also known as mirrored window privacy film, gives you a clear view of the outside during the day, while those on the outside can’t see inside. On the outside, windows that are treated with one way window film look as if they are mirrors during the day. For this reason, one way film is also known as reflective window film. However, you need to keep in mind that at night, the mirroring effect reverses. If you have interior lights on at night, people on the outside will have an unobstructed view of the inside, while you can’t see anything on the outside, so if you need 24-hour privacy with this film, then you will need to get some curtains or blinds to go along with the film to give you plenty of nighttime privacy. The important thing to remember when dealing with this type of film is that it gives privacy to the side of the film that is darker.

In addition to the films that I have described above, there are also tinting films that you can buy that can provide a darkening effect to your rooms, giving you a measure of privacy. This is the same kind of film that is used in automotive window tinting applications. These films come in varying degrees of tint, so you need to decide how much tint is best for you.


Regardless of which film you use, I strongly recommend using a static cling window film, as the static cling films are much easier to install and remove. This is because the cling films rely solely on static electricity to stay on the windows. There is no messy adhesive involved. The ease of removal often gives static cling film the nickname of removable window privacy film. Also remember that any of these films that I described above can provide you with some of the benefits that I described earlier in the article. Just make sure before you buy that the film does in fact give you the benefits that you desire.

Keep Your Window Privacy Film Clean

Once you’ve purchased your window privacy film and installed it on your windows, you will want to keep it clean and looking at its best. Although you may be tempted to start cleaning the film right away, you need to check with the manufacturer before doing so. This is because many window privacy films require you to wait for at least 30 days before cleaning it, because most films require a certain amount of time for static electricity to build up between the film and the window. If you clean it too soon, you might pull it off of the window.

Once you’ve gotten the all-clear from the manufacturer, you will need to procure a squirt bottle that contains a light soapy water mixture, or a glass cleaning solution that is ammonia-free and abrasive-free. You will also need a soft cloth or a synthetic sponge. Using the bottle, squirt the cleaning solution onto the film and gently wipe with the cloth or sponge, removing any dirt, grease, and oil smudges that may have been left behind by someone touching the windows. Be careful not to apply too much pressure to the window when doing this, as you don’t want to scratch the film.

After doing this, you will need to dry the film with another soft cloth. Whatever you do, do not, under any circumstances, use paper towels or newspapers to dry the window, as these materials will scratch the film badly. For the same reason, don’t use too much pressure when drying the film. Also, be sure not to use the same cloth that you might have used to clean the window frame and the sill.

Now, you know a little bit more about the many different types of window privacy film available, how to select the best type for your needs, how to get the best deals on window film, and how to keep it clean once you’ve bought and installed it. So, let’s get to work!
