What to Expect Before an Installation:
We ask our clients to clear the area where the window film application will be performed before we arrive. We ask that the client remove any furniture, valuables and electronics from the area of installation. Our installer(s) need to have at least 3 feet of work area in order to get close to the glass with room for a ladder or step stool if necessary. Specialty (custom) window coverings (i.e. cloth and silhouettes) and custom drapery treatments will need to be removed prior to the installation as well.
Once we arrive at your home or office, our installer(s) will review the area(s) to be treated. The installer(s) will use a drop cloth to cover the floor which manages over spray and drippings, then proceed to clean each piece of glass using a biodegradable soapy water solution that does not stain window areas or paint. The installer(s) will proceed to scrape the glass with a razor blade and squeegee from edge to edge for maximum particle removal results.
After each piece of glass has been properly cleaned, the installer(s) will wet the glass with the solution and proceed to apply the pre-cut window film to your glass. Once the window film has been applied, the installer(s) will then squeegee out the water, working from the middle of the glass out and down, securing the window film to the glass. The installer(s) will then complete a final trim if necessary, and finish by cleaning each piece of glass after each individual application has been completed. The installer(s) will then wipe down any over spray that may have occurred while preparing and installing your window film.
