The sun is the center of our solar system, and brings light to our lives and greets us each morning. But its life-giving rays can also cause a good deal of damage. The sun emits many kinds of invisible and visible light, including X-rays, ultraviolet, and infrared. It’s many of those light forms combined that can cause damage to your home and even your skin.


At Sun Control of Minnesota, we specialize in providing Twin Cities business and homeowners with high-performance residential and commercial window tinting. In this article, we’ll talk about how we can help you prevent sun damage using our 3M films.


Protecting Your Home or Business

At home or at the office, you can end up spending a good deal of your hard-earned money on your furnishings. Over time, however, exposure to the sun can damage your interior furnishings where light shines in through the windows.


This sun damage can manifest as either fading or discoloration, which is something you may have commonly noticed in your vehicle when the interior fades. In some materials, prolonged exposure can cause the quality of the material to degrade, as well. Just as the sun is damaging your furnishings, it’s also causing damage to your skin.


Here are a few things that can become damaged from sunlight:


●        Wallpaper

●        Hardwood flooring

●        Paneling

●        Drapes and curtains

●        Art

●        Upholstered furniture

●        Carpet and rugs


How 3M Film Protects Your Property

3M film is specially engineered to target the main causes of sun damage. It prevents many forms of sunlight from penetrating your windows and can be installed in your commercial business, home, or car. 3M film targets UV rays, visible sunlight, solar heat, and other forms of light.


This effectively controls the destruction of your property by filtering and blocking up to 99 percent of the sun’s most harmful UV rays. The result is a dramatic slow in the fading process, which means your furnishings and the people inside your car, home, or business enjoy greater protection from the sun.
