Hi this is Abigail from Blinds.com, October is a very special month here because it's Window Covering Safety month. We love our kiddos all year long, but this is a great time to review some basic window covering safety tips to keep your family safe while your windows are looking great.
When considering window coverings for your home, especially in areas where children will be playing and sleeping (like nurseries, bedrooms and common areas) - you want to be as cordless as possible. We recommend products like cordless honeycomb shades, cordless roller shades, shutters, and draperies. We also offer some great upgrades that help your window treatments stay safer - including remote control options that are super convenient for you too!
If your home has older window treatments that do feature cords, be sure to use your cord cleats and wrap those window covering cords out of reach of little hands. Click the link below for more tips about how to retrofit existing window coverings. And be sure to visit www.windowcoverings.org to order retrofit kits that can help increase your window covering safety until you are able to replace them with safer cordless products.
This month, October of 2014, Blinds.com is offering a $2,500 cash giveaway to get your home in safer for kid shape. You can enter online at Blinds.com -- and learn much more about window covering safety. If you're tuning in a bit later, never fear we're always offering fun giveaways and great deals all the year round.
So to wrap it up, we think your kids are awfully cute and truly appreciate you being a Blinds.com customer. Stay safe and happy decorating!
