Step-by-step guide for installing window insulation film
Here are a few quick and easy steps that will make installing window insulation films seem like a piece of cake!
Step 1 – Cleaning The Window Surface
Begin by cleaning the surface of the window. This is important to ensure that the surface does not give a blurry vision after the film has been installed.
Step 2 – Make The Window Surface Wet
To make sure that the insulation film sticks firmly to the window surface, you will have to make it wet. You can use a simple soap or some shampoo mixed with water to make the surface wet.
Step 3 – Cut Insulation Film to Fit Window Size
Now you will need to measure the window size and cut the insulation firm to fit well on to the window size. Measurement is the key to make sure you do not trim the film smaller or bigger. Use a paper cutter, knife or scissor to cut the film.
Step 4 – Start Applying Insulation Film On Window
You can now start applying the film over the window. Start by slowly exposing the film as you continue to attach it on the window surface at the same time. Reveal the film slowly so that it sticks well and firmly over the surface.
Step 5 – Use A Scraper to Remove Any Air Bubbles from Window
The small scraper that is used to scrap ice in the refrigerator is what you should use to smooth out the insulation film surface. After application you might notice that small air bubbles appear on the surface. Use a scraper to immediately remove the air bubbles or else they become permanent.
Step 6 – Trim The Edges
Even though you must have already cut the insulation film according to your window measurements to make it fit well over the window surface – once you are done applying you will see that the film will need trimming from the edges. This is only so that the film appears smooth and even. You can trim the edges using a paper cutter or a small scissor.
Step 7 – Give It a Quick Last Clean-Up Touch
Once the process is all done and completed and you feel that the insulation film is sitting perfectly over the window surface – give it a quick last touch-up. Never use a wet or damp cloth/towel on the insulation film. Just dab off the surface with a dry cloth to remove any dust or dirt particles from it and even out the surface.
