Removing Sacramento Window Tint Using Steamer Method
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most people would want to remove the tint on their windows by themselves rather than having a service provider remove it for them. There are some reasons why they want to do it themselves and the two most common reasons is first, it is much cheaper than hiring someone else to remove it and second, and it is easier if you know the right method to use.

Removing window tint using a steamer is one of the most affordable and easiest methods you can find. If you don't know how to use the steamer method, here are some steps to help you remove your Sacramento window tint.

First, purchase a fabric steamer which usually costs $30-$40. You can also use a clothing steamer or anything as long as they can produce steam. Just avoid using a boiling water to make a steam.

Once you have purchased a steamer, you need to fill it with water and turn it on. Make sure to apply steam equally to all of the window's surface area to make loosen the adhesives and make it easier to peel.

With enough steaming, the Sacramento tint films can now be easily removed with the use of your hands only. Make sure to remove the tint as careful as possible so that you can remove the tint as a whole.

Once you have the tint film removed, used an adhesive cleaner to remove the excess adhesives left on the window. If you don't have an adhesive cleaner, use a mixture of soap and water and wipe off the adhesives using a clean cloth.

If you want to remove the tint on all your windows, just follow all of the steps again until you have all the tints removed. Make sure to wash the windows after you have applied an adhesive cleaner.

If you think using a steamer method is not the right method for you, there are also other tint removal methods you can use. You can use the ammonia method, heat method or soak and scraping method. One of the risks involved in having the tints removed by yourself is that the windows can be damaged if the method you are going to use is not properly done.

If you don't want to take the risk of damaging your windows, you might want to consider hiring a professional Sacramento window tinting company to remove them for you. It can be quite expensive to hire one but you can be assured that your windows will not be damaged.
