Child-safe options for window treatments

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: InteriorWindows

Children and window cords don’t mix. When window cords are accessible to small children, these seemingly harmless products may become strangulation hazards. In fact, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, corded window coverings are among the top five hidden hazards in American homes. This is especially important to keep in mind when dealing with older window coverings that may not meet the latest national standard for window cord safety.

It is vital that you check your window coverings for exposed or dangling cords and retrofit or replace them with today’s safer products. Safety experts recommend using only cordless window coverings in homes with young children.

Safety precautions you can take include:

• Keeping all window cords out of the reach of children
• Making sure that tasseled pull cords are as short as possible
• Replacing older corded window blinds, shades and draperies with today’s safer products

Pacific Islands window fashions, designed with safety in mind, take these precautions into account while also serving as beautiful additions to your home’s decor.
