Child Proof Your Window Treatments in Time for the Holidays

The holidays are well underway!  It’s a time of enjoyment and fun for all parties involved. For those who are hosting friends and family, and don’t typically have young children in your home, there’s some precautions that you should consider before your visitors come over.

Add Cord Cleats to Windows With Strings

Cord Cleats

If you happen to have corded window coverings, ensure that you hang up cord cleats to wrap the shade’s string around them to prevent potential entanglement. This will reduce the risk for children, if you’ve purchased shades from us before and still are under our warranty, just give us a call and we will send you out a new set of cord cleats!

Consider New Window Treatments for Rooms Where the Children are Sleeping In

If there’s a room or area of your home where you are planning to leave small children in alone, consider removing or replacing the window treatments. Even if the cords are tightened up with cord cleats, you still don’t want to risk having the strings become entangled.

If you plan on purchasing a set of new window treatments, always go cordless, this is the only 100% child proof window treatment available on the open market.  For some purchasing a new set of window treatments to accommodate traveling family might not be financially feasible. If this is the case, then you can temporarily remove the window treatments all together.
