WHY YOU SHOULD PROTECT YOUR HOUSE FROM UV SUN RAYS?
Ultraviolet rays also popularly known as UV rays are an invisible form of rays that are reflected onto the surface of Earth from the Sun. The proportion of these rays being reflected onto the surface of the Earth has risen manifolds over the years.
While these rays are responsible for many beneficial tasks such as producing Vitamin D and treating certain skin conditions, excessive exposure to the UV rays can have many adverse effects on life and sustenance.
In this article, we will discuss why we should protect our house from UV sun rays with shade sails.
1. CAUSES FADING TO THE FLOORING OF THE HOUSE:
This happens especially in the case of wooden flooring. The sun’s rays are so strong that the constant exposure of the wood to the sunlight and the UV rays reflected from it can damage the texture of the wood and can cause extirpation of the wood shred by shred.
Due to this, the expected life of the flooring is reduced by a wide margin.
Apart from this, a lot of expenditure is done in order to get a wooden flooring done, therefore, it becomes a lose-lose situation for the owner of the house.
The return on the money invested on such expensive items is not good and it ultimately makes the house look dull.
To prevent the light from directly entering the house one can go for shade sails, these are devices that extend the roof of the house and cause the shade to the area that is very exposed to the sunlight.
2. CAUSES DAMAGE TO THE CARPETS:
While the floor can be damaged to a wide level due to its exposure to the sunlight, people often try to protect the floor with the help of mats and carpets.
Buying good carpets and mats is also not very pocket friendly when one knows that ultimately the UV rays from the sunlight will also cause damage and premature fading to the carpets.
One should not buy very expensive carpets for their house when they know that a particular area where the carpet is going to be put will receive enormous amounts of sunlight.
One can invest in low-cost carpets, which can be replaced within a short period and can protect the floor from getting damaged.
Shade sails are a good option to protect excess light entering the house and protecting the carpets from premature damage.
3. DAMAGES HOME DECOR, ESPECIALLY THE PAINTINGS AND ART PIECES:
Another drawback of the harmful UV rays is that they also damage and fade the art pieces that we keep at home for decoration purposes.
The UV rays dull and suck the color from the vibrant showpieces and make them look lifeless.
Unless UV protection films are not used over the glasses of framed photographs or UV conservational acrylic glass is not used on the pieces, the pieces run a high risk of losing their color due to fading of it.
The strands of other decoration materials may weaken and lose strength due to their constant exposure to a high content of UV rays present in the sunlight.
Apart from this, one can opt for shade sails, it will not let the extra light seep in through the windows of the house and prevent damaging the artwork of the house.
4. THE EXTERIOR OF THE HOME IS THE MOST EXPOSED PORTION:
It becomes very important to protect the external area of our house as well from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
This is because the harmful UV rays radiate such waves that when it is absorbed by materials, they may damage the texture of the materials, can alter the chemical bonds of the materials, it may cause cracking and weakening of the material.
It becomes of extreme importance to take care of the walls and the foundation of the house so that the walls do not absorb the harmful rays of the sun and get damaged.
To protect the walls of the house from the UV rays, one can invest in good quality paint for the house and can go for a multiple layered polishing post painting to ensure double protection of the house.
Investing in shade sails will help the household in protecting almost every internal portion of the house and will protect the walls of the house from sunlight to a wide extent.
Excessive exposure to UV rays is very harmful to life. It is one of the biggest causes of the formation of cancer-forming cells, therefore, one must try to prevent exposure to it as much as possible.
UV protection coatings should be used on the surface of the house to ensure protection from the UV rays and other preventive measures should be adopted to prevent the UV rays as much as possible.
