Most people are aware that they need some sort of uv protection like sunblock when plan on being outside for a while. But did you know that uv rays can cause just as much damage indoors? UV rays enter your home through your windows and can cause serious damage to your furniture and flooring and put your family’s health at risk. That’s why all Kansas City homes need window tint. Window tint can keep the people and things you love the most safe from the sun’s damaging rays.

A Closer Look at UV Damage

When it comes to understanding how uv rays cause damage to our skin and furniture, it’s important to know the science behind the matter. You see, there are many types of light which make up the electromagnetic spectrum and one of them is ultraviolet light. Though most uv light from the sun is absorbed by Earth’s atmosphere, some of it still manages to reach the surface of our planet.


When uv light comes into contact with our skin and eyes, it causes cellular damage which leads to mutations that result in diseases like melanoma and glaucoma. And your furniture and floors aren’t much safer. UV rays can still get into your home by entering your windows. When they come into contact with fabrics, paint, and flooring, they break down the molecular composition of the dyes responsible for color. This results in a bleached or whitish looking appearance.

Using Window Tint for UV Protection

With window tint, you can protect your home and family from uv damage without blocking out the sun. Window tint blocks out 99.9% of uv rays while still allowing for maximum visible light transmission. It’s so powerful that some studies indicate having your windows tinted is almost the same as applying SPF 1000. That’s the kind of protection you and your family can count on.
