Window Tint

When cleaning, we suggest using a soft microfiber cloth or squeegee with an alcohol-based window cleaner.


  • Do NOT roll windows down for 2-3 days in hot weather, 3-5 in cold weather

  • Do NOT clean, or touch windows on the inside for the first week

  • Do NOT use tape, stickers, suction cups, etc. on the film, as this will damage it when removed.

  • Do NOT push, poke, or press on bubbles, they will evaporate after a week or two.

  • Do NOT use cleaners that contain Ammonia or Vinegar. (NO WINDEX)

  • Do NOT use newspaper or other abrasive materials to clean your windows.

Ceramic Coating


  • Do NOT wash with soap or chemicals during the first 7 days.

  • Do NOT use abrasive materials to wash and clean, use a soft microfiber cloth instead.

  • Hand-wash regularly with CARPRO ReSet or IronX.

  • Avoid using automatic carwashes as the acidic soaps will wear away the coating.

  • Remove bird droppings & other debris ASAP to avoid damage to the coating.

  • Apply ReLoad 2x a year for maintenance and a shine boost!

Make your own cleaner:

  1. 2 drops of soap (Dawn Original Dish Soap or Johnson & Johnson is what we use)
  2. 4-5 caps full of 70% isopropyl alcohol
  3. 16oz of water.

After care instructions For Commercial & Residential Tinting

The best thing to do is to not pay attention to the film for (5) days.

Film normally takes about 4 – 7 days to appear clear. Depending on the specific product used, how much pressure was put on the squeegee during application, and how much direct solar energy it receives, the complete cure time is 30 – 45 days. (V-Kool can take up to 7 months.)

During the curing process the excess moisture left under the film pools into little pockets first; then evaporates. These pockets should not exceed the size of a dime. Please call us ASAP should you notice anything larger than a quarter.

Sometimes the film appears hazy or blotchy during cure time. You will know the film has cured when the film looks crystal clear again.

Sometimes squeegee marks are left on the film from soap in the application solution. We generally do not clean the film after installation and neither should the customer. Wet film can shift when wiped down firmly. Wait at least one week to clean the window film.

Never use any product that contains ammonia or vinegar to clean your film. Over time these chemicals will break down the adhesive on the film. DO NOT USE WINDEX, as it is the most common culprit. Products that are safe to use include Hi-Sheen (which we carry at our three locations), Sprayway,Glass Plus, Sparkle, or just a damp cloth.

We recommend using a cleaning mixture of:

2 Drops of Dawn dish detergent
16 oz of water

The warranty for the window film covers everything except for scratches. Please be careful with objects made of metal or that have sharp corners.

When painting or varnishing, use only 3M Scotch Safe Release tape. (White in color and can be found at your local hardware store.)
