Mobile window tinting provides a lot of benefits. As such, there are some preps that need to be done prior to the installation of the car window tinting. It is best that you leave the tinting of your car windows to the professionals, so you get the results that you expect.
There are three things you need to do before the start of your mobile window tinting.
Make the Choice
Once you have decided to have mobile window tinting, the very first thing you need to do is determine how many windows you intend to get tinted and how dark. Do you only want to tint the rear windows or the windshield and the back window as well?
Having determined the number of windows to be tinted, you can now search for the right car window tinting service to install your car window tints. You should also be able to request for a quote.
Ask the Questions
It will be beneficial for you and the tinting service to have all your questions answered prior to installation of your car window tints. This will give you a clear picture of the expected results and to avoid any miscommunication. Here are the items that need to be settled prior to installation.
- How dark can the window tints go? Each state has its own set of laws governing the darkness of car window tints. It is best that you follow the installers’ suggestion to avoid any inconvenience should you decide on a car window tint that is darker than what is allowed by the law.
- How long will it take to install the tints? The length of time to complete the installation depends on how many windows need to be tinted, the type of vehicle and the type of car window tint. The load of work of the car window tint service is also another factor to consider.
- When can the windows be rolled down? Most car owners would like to know, in advance, how long after car window tint installation their cars can get back to “normal.”
Rolling down your car’s windows before the curing period is completed can cause some damage to your newly-installed car window tints. Your installer will advise you on when you can start rolling down your windows.
You should follow what the installer says. Not doing so may forfeit the warranty of your newly-installed auto window tints.
Prepare the Car
The car window tinting service will do some basic cleaning on your car prior to installation. It is best that you do the cleaning yourself to make sure it is thoroughly done.
- Wash your car thoroughly at least 1-2 days before the tint installation date.
- Vacuum your car 2-3 days prior to the installation date.
Cleaning your car properly prior to tinting will ensure that as much as possible no contaminations will get into contact with the tinting film while it is being installed.
Preparing your car by yourself for mobile window tinting will ensure the smooth flow of the tinting process.
