Faded Floors in Your West Virginia Home: What Can Be Done?

If you want to save your furniture from damage due to UV rays, having residential window tinting film is an easy way. It can prevent the fading or cracking of furnishings, works of art and drapes by filtering out harmful UV rays. Furniture, rugs, drapes and carpets are susceptible to the extra light entering your home, and even if you aren’t letting in direct sunlight, UV rays can still have devastating effects. With the high elevations, and trendiness of large open windows, fading furniture, floors, and decor is becoming more and more common in West Virginia homes.


Sun Damage to Furniture and Flooring


You can check whether sunlight has caused damage to your interior, by taking a picture from the wall and observe whether the decorative color under the picture is more vibrant than the surrounding wall. Alternatively, if you have wood floors, lift an area rug to see if the wood underneath is darker than the surrounding wood tone.


Visible light, solar heat, and ultraviolet rays all contribute to damaging furnishings by causing fading. The breakdown of damage caused by this sunlight is:

  • Ultraviolet rays – 40 percent

  • Solar heat – 25 percent

  • Visible light – 25 percent

  • Other – 10 percent

Blocking Sunlight

One way to protect your furniture and flooring from fading is to add heavy blinds, drapes, or curtains. While this helps prevent damage, many don’t like how it darkens up the home. Many homeowners often face the conundrum of wanting to enjoy natural light, but want to protect their home from UV damage. Window film lets you enjoy natural light and the lovely views of West Virginia you love from your home windows–all while greatly reducing the risk of fading to your hardwood flooring and furniture.
