Window Film Helping PTSD and TBI

Window Film Helping With PTSD

Women coping with PTSDWhat is PTSD and how does window film help with PTSD? PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) is a mental health condition that people can develop after experiencing or perhaps just witnessing a life-threatening event. This event can include but is not limited to a car accident, natural disaster, combat or sexual assault.

Symptoms of PTSD

There are four basic types of symptoms. Please keep in mind that everyone is different. People experience symptoms in their own way.

  1. Reliving the event. Sometimes referred to as flashbacks. This is where you feel like your experiencing the event all over again. You might even have nightmares of the event.
  2. Avoiding situations that remind you of the event. This can include situations or people that might trigger memories of the event.
  3. Having more negative beliefs and feelings. You might find that the way you think about yourself or others has changed because of the trauma. You also might lose interest in activities you once enjoyed. You might find yourself feeling numb, or find it hard to feel happy.
  4. Feeling keyed up. You feel jittery, alert, on the lookout all the time. You can have a hard time concentrating or sleeping.

For a more comprehensive list, please visit the PTSD official website.

Window Film Can Help People With PTSD

before and after residential window tintingThere are different treatments out there for PTSD. Let me make it very clear that window film does not treat PTSD but rather it helps with some of the symptoms. That being said, how does window film help with PTSD?

One of the symptoms is hypersensitivity to light accompanied by severe anxiety. Solar control window film helps relieve the discomfort that’s caused by intense sunlight and glare. The best thing to do is match the right window film with each persons needs.

Each window film offers differing percentages of light and/or glare blockage. So depending on the severity of light sensitivity, the person with PTSD would need either a lighter or darker film.

If you live in the Denver area and would like a free quote on solar control window film, give us a call today at 303-278-3456. Or go to our website and submit an on-line request.

High UV Index | What It Means For You

What A High UV Index Means For You

I’m not sure if you have noticed but the UV index here in Denver has been in the High range for the last several days. A lot of people don’t pay attention to this, however, today I will tell you why it’s a good idea to.

The UV scale measures how high the ultra-violet rays are at any given time. Ultra-violet rays is the damaging rays coming from the sun. UV rays can cause skin cancer and cataracts, if you’re not fully protected. The scale ranges from 0 to 11+. Here are the measurements for each category:

  • 0-2: Low
  • 3-5: Moderate
  • 6-7: High
  • 8-10: Very High
  • 11+: Extreme

In Denver the UV index has been at 9, which means we are in the Very High range and are at high risk of harm for unprotected eyes and skin. A couple of things to keep in mind in the Very High range is; try to stay inside between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. If you need to be outdoors try and stay in the shade and wear protective clothing such as a wide brimmed hat and UV blocking sunglasses. There are a lot of clothing now that has SPF in the material. Be sure to apply broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every 2 hours. If you’re swimming reapply after you have dried off, even if it hasn’t been 2 hours.

Some people think because you can’t see UV rays it won’t hurt you, unfortunately that’s just not the case. Be kind to your skin, you only get one set of skin and believe me when I tell you, you’ll thank yourself as you get older.

To read more about the ranges on the UV index go to the United States Environmental Protection Agency website.

What You Need To Know About Skin Cancer

May is the national skin cancer detection and prevention month. That being the case I thought we would focus on skin cancer and what you need to know.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States and melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. How do we get skin cancer?

The main cause of skin cancer comes from Ultraviolet UV radiation from the sun. It can also come from tanning booths or sunlamps. The good news is, when skin cancer is detected and treated early, it’s almost always curable. 

What You Can Do To Prevent Skin Cancer

We have all heard it many times, when you’re going to be outside, put sunscreen on. Well I don’t mean to beat a dead horse but, applying sunscreen is the best defence against skin cancer. Something most people don’t think about though is, you don’t have to be outside to get UV exposure. UV rays comes through our windows and into our cars and homes. That is why one of the new trends is to install window film on all your windows, home windows and your car windows. 

vista home window tint by llumar window tintVista window film is an excellent option for your home windows. It will block 99.9% of UV rays coming into your home and has one of the best warranties on the market. If you live in the Denver area, then you really need to consider window film as an option.

Window Washing In Lakewood Colorado

Tired of looking out dirty windows? Then you need to call Precision Window Washing!

Our residential window cleaning services has consistently maintained a reputation for honesty, dependability and loyalty. We not only clean your windows we also clean your screens and window tracks. All this and it’s included in our already low price. Just to make things better still, we use Pure Water Technology.

What is Pure Water Technology? Prior to cleaning your windows we run the water through a system of 3 filters and a de-ionizer. We then pump the water through a small hose and a soft bristle brush to scrub the window and window frame. Finally we rinse the window again with the pure water.
Why is this important? Because our tap water has chemicals in it and it has a certain level of hardness. The chemicals are good because it allows us to drink the water, however, these 2 factors create water deposits or a film on your windows. So if they are cleaned with regular tap water, there will still be a film or residue on the window which will cause dust, pollen & pollution to cling to the window, which means your windows will get dirtier faster.

Well here is where I tell you to step out of the old-age window film thinking and step into the new-age window film.

Got Hot Spots in Your Home?

Eliminate Hot Spots in Your Home

Home Window tinting denver

Make your home more comfortable with window tint.

Do you find that one room in your home or office is too cold or too hot and another room is just the opposite? If you’re struggling with this problem, then you have what are called hot spots in your home. This can be caused by different things and there can be different solutions to this problem. Sometimes it can take multiple solutions to solve the problem, depending on what’s causing these hot spots.

Today let’s focus on the hot spots that are caused by direct sunlight coming into your home and making one area or room too hot while the rest of your house is either too cold because of the A/C running or pretty comfortable. What is a solution for this situation?

Home Window Tint

Having window tint installed on your home’s windows can greatly reduce these hot spots. Window tint will prevent a percentage of the heat coming from the sun, from entering through your windows and causing the problem area of your home to get too hot.

There are several different window films to choose from, depending on what you would like to accomplish. If you have a severe problem we have window tint that can block up 75% of the heat. If your problem is not so severe, we have window films that will block only about 35% of the heat. Our window tints range from totally see through all the way to being completely mirrored.

Not only will window tint help reduce hot spots but it will help you save money because your A/C won’t be running as much.

If you live in the Denver area and would like a free in-home consultation, please give us a call at 303-278-3456. We look forward to hearing from you!
