Think of the worst sunburn you’ve ever had.
I’m betting you received that sunburn by the pool, maybe the beach, maybe during a round of golf. Maybe it was at a baseball game, or maybe, like me, you just fell asleep at the park. Regardless, one thing is likely true for all of us: those sunburns came during the summer.
Unfortunately, this correlation leads most of us to equate sunburns with heat—even the word itself, sunburn, implies that there is a very hot element involved in the process, but this is not true. UV radiation is responsible for the damage to your skin and the resulting pain, and UV rays are present, hot or not.
You’ve probably never had a winter sunburn, but you’re probably not cavorting on the snowy, muddy, frozen beach in your Speedo either. You are wrapped up in a jacket and hood with nary an inch of skin exposed to the elements. Since experts suggest one of the best ways to combat UV rays is to simply wear a hat, your winter wardrobe likely has you covered.
But you’re not the only thing that takes damage from UV radiation. Your home furnishings are constantly suffering a similar fate.
UV light fades your carpets. It fades your furniture. It fades your otherwise bright home.
The fact is that fresh snow-covered ground reflects around 80% of UV light, which sounds positive, but this doesn’t mean it is just bounced away into space. UV reflection off of snow can double your exposure. Snow crystals do not disperse UV evenly, and even if they did, the northern hemisphere suffers from a bad case of indirect sunlight in the winter months—and those long winter shadows also mean shallow angles of UV reflection, often right into the windows of your home.
This UV radiation can irreversibly damage your possessions, leaving once vibrant rooms looking dull over time. Product regulations in recent years have moved industry standards in upholstery coloration toward more eco-friendly dyes. This is good for the environment, of course, but bad for your wallet, as these dyes bleach and fade faster than older solvent dyes.
So what are your options? You probably don’t want to ruin the environment, but you probably don’t want your home furnishings to all turn some shade of bone grey, like fossilized versions of what you once excitedly purchased.
