Window Tinting Maintenance

Drying Period: Your new Tint Pros tint will take about 3-5 days to fully dry and cure – sometimes up to 2 weeks depending on the vehicle, tint type, and weather conditions. During this time, your newly tinted windows may appear hazy or lumpy with water bubbles. Please do not roll your tinted windows down or try to push the water out until it is dry!

Cleaning: Do not use ammonia, scrapers, scrubber pads, or other various chemicals to clean window film. We recommend any cleaning spray clearly labeled “safe for tinted windows” or soap and water and a soft microfiber towel.

Black Dots: Most cars have a black, dotted, ceramic edge on the rear window. These black ceramic dots are thick and prevent the window film from sticking to the area between the dots.

Window Tinting Warranty

  • Tint Pros LLC proudly warranties window film against fading to purple, bubbling peeling, cracking, delaminating, oxidation, and corrosion.

  • Tint Pros LLC does not cover any scratches, nicks, cuts to the window film or if the window was broken. While we strive for perfection in our installations, due to the nature of the product, some degree of dust contamination and/or minor imperfections are present in every window film application. Pre-existing flaws, scratches, or metal deposits on the glass of your windows are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted.

  • If warranty work needed please leave the window tint as is for us to properly remove and replace the window film. Warranty will be voided if consumer removes any window film from window unless specified by Tint Pros Specialist.

Vehicle Wrap Maintenance

How often should I wash my vehicle wrap?
We recommend that you wash your wrap once a week or more often if your vehicle is exposed to a lot of dirt or pollutants. You should hand wash it using one of the following:

  • 3M® Car Wash Soap 39000

  • Meguiar’s NXT Generation® Car Wash

  • Meguiar’s Deep Crystal® Car Wash.

  • 3M Quick Detailer Spray Wax

  • Meguiar’s Ultimate Quik Wax.

Dry with a clean microfiber cloth.

Can I take my wrapped vehicle into a drive-through car wash?

You can bring your wrapped vehicle to an automated brushless car wash, though hand washing is safer andmore thorough. Brush car washes may be too rough on the film, degrading it and causing peeling and lifted edges. If a car wash uses water spray and no brushes, it should be safe for most wraps.
