Here at Solar Art people frequently ask us if they can remove the window film themselves. The short and simple answer is yes, you can technically remove window film yourself, but we highly recommend that you don’t. The lining of window film has a sticky adhesive which is how it adheres to the glass. In order to remove the window film entirely, the adhesive needs to be removed as well. Adhesive left on the glass looks unsightly so you will want it fully removed, which can be a difficult task. Typically the longer the window film has been installed, the more difficult it is to get off. Our team of installers uses a scraper blade to get the window film and all of the adhesive removed from the glass. All of our installers have been professionally trained in not only how to install window film, but also how to remove window film. They have all been doing it for years and know how to properly remove window film without damaging the glass. Seeing as window film and the adhesive gets removed with a scraper blade, it is really easy to scratch the glass if not done properly. In addition to window film removal only jobs, Solar Art also services solar film, decorative window film, custom graphics, security window film, anti graffiti film, and exterior building wraps.
