Window Treatment Safety Tips
Above all else, as a Savannah homeowner, your top priority is the safety and well-being of everyone in your household, including guests. The highest at-risk group would be small children and pets.
Unfortunately, in many instances, your very own window blinds and treatments could be posing a serious threat. Learn important ways to help prevent this from happening so you can feel as though you are doing your due diligence to make your house a safe space for all.
How You Can Take Action & Responsibility
Prepare your home to be a safe environment for all, including taking care of your window treatments, with these important tips:
- Pay attention to the safety warnings and labels, they are there for a reason. Learn from the past mistakes of others so that you can avoid repeating the pattern that has inevitably lead to prior tragedy. Too many homeowners simply remove the tags without giving any of the included content a second thought.
- Modernize your window shades and blinds. The guidelines for manufacturers change over the years, in order to meet current mandatory safety regulations. Unfortunately, your outdated window treatments don't just look dated, they are likely to no longer meet modern day specifications. By simply updating your window coverings so that they are in line with today's safety stipulations, you could end up saving a life.
- When it comes to infants and toddlers, make it a point to ensure that their sleeping accommodations are nowhere near the windows. You should still make it a point to select child-friendly window treatment options but reduce the risk even more so by making certain that their crib or bed is not near a window.
Above all else, take this opportunity to go cordless. The bottom line is that there is no acceptable reason to continue to have something in your home that could act as a noose to your children or pets, especially with the option to switch to a cordless system!
