I suppose that means they will deteriorate more rapidly after theyre cleaned up
If you look on Utube there are a number of vids showing the cleaning or demisting of headlights as well as the application of a film to protect them thereafter. Most of the guys say that if you just check on them once or so a year you can redo them before they get too bad again.
