Keeping Kids And Pets Safe Around Windows

Blindsgalore is seriously committed to ensure that our customers have safe window treatments. This month is Window Covering Safety Month and we are reminding you of these important rules.

Move all furniture, cribs, beds and climbable surfaces away from windows.

Keep all window cords well out of the reach of children.

Install only cordless window coverings in homes with young children.

Make sure tasseled pull cords are as short as possible. Continuous-loop pull cords on draperies and vertical blinds should be pulled tight and anchored to the floor or wall.

Be sure cord stops are properly installed and adjusted to limit inner-cord movement.

The Window Coverings Safety Council also provides free retrofit kits for older corded window coverings.  Click here to order one today.

While we’re on the subject, check out this video from the Window Covering Safety Council in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission:

Please keep the safety of your loved ones in mind by checking the cords on your window treatments or replacing older treatments with cordless shades.  Blindsgalore wants you all safe at home.
