How to Protect your Flooring, Area Rugs and Furnishings from UV Rays

I'm sure you have seen it before...you move the area rug and your hardwood floors are darker under the rug, the chairs over by the window are faded.
If you have redecorated, remodeled or just furnished your new home, you have spent some sizable dollars. One area that most home and condo owners neglect to consider is the protection of their investment. I advocate window film to cut down on UV damaging rays.
One product is Hüper Optik Fusion Films. They use a 'fusion technology' of performance, aesthetics, neutral tones, and sustainability: providing the advantages of affordability and high heat rejection. Fusion Films deliver privacy, comfort and energy efficiency year round: reducing high energy bills, preventing temperature variances, and hot spots, and rejecting infrared and ultraviolet light rays.
