Protect Your Home From Sun Fading 

Protect your home from sun fading

We love our windows and the natural light they let in, but sun exposure can cause serious damage to the appearance and life of our valuable possessions. Nothing ruins beautiful decor like sun fading. Softer materials like carpeting, wood flooring, rugs, curtains, leather furniture, and artwork are especially vulnerable. What's worse is that replacing items damaged by sun fading can be expensive, impractical, and even impossible.

What Causes Sun Fading?

The sun puts out more than just light. It also emits ultraviolet (UV) radiation. 50% of sun fading is from light and heat combined. But, just as UVA and UVB radiation burns our skin, it also contributes 40% to sun fading by bleaching the color out of our possessions, which causes them to fade. Sadly, fading is just the first sign of damage: UV radiation actually destroys vulnerable materials over time.

Ways to prevent sun fading 

How to prevent sun fading

If sun fading is becoming a serious issue for you, one way you can try and prevent it is by keeping your valuable belongings away from windows. While this might stop the sun fading, it will really limit the style and what you can do with the space. Another option is to put down rugs or hang curtains. This is a good temporary fix, but those will eventually fade too and need to be replaced. Installing curtains can block the sun, which ultimately means your view is compromised and the rooms is darkened.
