The sun is one of the most important natural sources of Vitamin D; however, too much exposure might lead to something you would never want to happen. Usually left unnoticed, a window reflected by sunlight can actually cost you your life.
It is like your science experiment in grade school, in which you use sun reflection through a magnifying glass to burn leaves.Your windows, when left as it is, can result in both minor and major issues. Here are some of the dangers caused by window reflected by sunlight:
Window Glare Can Fade Your Fabrics
Fabrics fade with ultraviolet and visible lights combined with heat and humidity - mainly caused by window glare. When neglected, the fabric becomes thinner and discolored. That faded part would eventually become a hole that would also affect whatever is underneath the cloth.
Even the most powerful detergent invented might be challenged to remove the stain caused by the heat. The mark it leaves on the cloth penetrates each fiber.
Thermal Reflection Can Cause Vinyl Distortion
Many homeowners have already reported melting vinyl caused by their neighbor’s unprotected glass windows. The stories are almost the same: vinyl siding seemed to be the target of a window reflected by sunlight causing the alteration.Such incidents usually occur during summer when heat waves are at their peak.
Sunlight Can Cause Fire
There are only isolated cases of fire caused by sunlight; however, they are enough to alarm everyone. Fire is triggered when the sun reflects on a window that intensifies the heat onto light materials such as curtains and papers. Millions of money were lost when a house in the United Kingdom was taken down just because of the rays of the sun. It took six firefighters to quench the fire.
