Science Magazine issued a report on the ozone that indicates for the first time since the 1980’s, the hole in the ozone is actually starting to close. That’s the good news, the bad news is it won’t be completely closed until at least 2050. So until that happens we are all still at risk of exposure to the dangerous affects of UV rays. One example of this is skin cancer, skin cancer rates are higher now than they have ever been.
So how can we fight against these harmful UV rays? If you’re going outside be sure to apply sun screen. But what if you’re inside? Did you know that UV rays can cause much damage to your skin and eyes even while you’re inside your home or car? To help combat these harmful rays the International Window Film Association recommends you getting home window tint installed and automotive window tint installed.
Benefits of Window Tint
Window tint usually rejects about 99% of UV rays coming in through your windows. In addition to this, window film helps save energy used in your home, eliminates hot spots, cuts down on glare and protects your furniture, artwork and hardwood floors from fading. Window tint also offers a quick return on investment as well.
