How to Care for Newly-Tinted Windows From Our New Orleans Audio Shop



Don’t Ruin Your Window Tint Installation; Protect Your Investment


Window tinting is one of the most popular upgrades at our New Orleans audio shop because of the style and sleekness it adds to a ride.


On top of the look, window tinting in New Orleans actually has practical benefits that drivers will appreciate! These benefits include:

  • Reduce UV radiation and heat - Window tinting is an added protection on your window that helps protect everyone inside and keep them comfortable. Excessive UV rays can be harmful to skin, even in the car, so window tint helps block those rays. Think of window tinting as your sunscreen while in the car.

  • Limit Glare - Visibility is everything while driving, so a bright glare from the sun or oncoming headlights can be dangerous. When you opt for a window tinting installation, your tint will work to block too much light from getting inside your vehicle.

  • Prevent Shattering - Window tinting binds the window under the film, so in the event of an accident or other emergency situation, your window will be much less likely to shatter and cause further injury.


To keep these benefits for the life of your window tinting, there are steps to take after window tint installation to protect it. Let's explore how you can maximize your window tint installation investment.


1. Don’t Roll Windows Down Until It’s Time

As soon as your window tint installation is complete, you can enjoy the benefits of your darker, sleeker, more useful windows. However, it does take a little bit of time for the adhesive on the tint to dry and permanently seal to the window glass. In some cases it can take up to four days for this to complete, so be sure to keep the windows up for at least that long. Rolling your windows down prematurely can be detrimental to your new window tint, resulting in peeling and poor bonding of the adhesive.


2. Give Early Flaws Time To Settle

New Orleans window tinting installation with the pros is an investment for drivers, so we understand that high quality will be expected. There are some cases that windows will be hazy after installation, or even have some water bubbles forming underneath. This is completely normal and temporary, so don’t worry or attempt to fix it yourself. Be patient and give your window tinting up to a month to fully settle for the best long-term results. And because Mobile One Auto Sound guarantees our work, if you spot ongoing issues, we’re happy to help.


3. Don’t Clean Windows Too Soon

Washing windows is another way to prematurely damage your professional window tinting. It can take up to four days for your windows to be fully bonded, so give your windows at least that long before immersing them in water at a car wash or hosing them down at home.


Use a microfiber cloth to wipe your windows if needed in the meantime. Dry is the best approach, but if you must use a cleaner, DO NOT use one that includes ammonia - even after curing is complete.


4. Be Smart and Don’t Push Limits

Window tinting isn’t invincible. A professional window tint installation should have some durability and scratch resistance against everyday force, but don’t push it.


Intentionally scratching or manipulating your window tint with a sharp object or other tools is a quick way to ruin it and flush your money down the drain. Be careful when loading and unloading objects with sharp edges as well. Just be smart and use common sense to protect your new window tinting installation.
