Children learn by exploring the world around them. However, many household items including window coverings can be potentially hazardous to them. That’s why child safety is a top priority at Blindsource. To keep infants and young children safe, we provide child safety options with all the window coverings we provide. In fact, we use a wide range of products that help to significantly reduce any risk of accidents by eliminating potentially hazardous cords.
From motorized systems to other cordless alternatives, Blindsource offers a wide variety of innovative operating systems designed with safety in mind. Depending on your taste and preference, the options we provide come in an abundant array of colors, materials, and styles that will complement your current décor.
At Blindsource Child Safety Is Our Priority
At Blindsource, we strive to provide you with products that not only beautify your home but also incorporate important child safety features. That’s why we encourage you to schedule a free in-home consultation with one of our qualified design professionals to learn more about our diverse collection of window coverings and the child safety options we offer.
Pet-Friendly Blinds & Window Coverings
Our qualified design professionals understand that pets are considered a part of your family. We also understand that window cords are one of the top hidden pet hazards in your home. This is because our furry friends sometimes mistake dangling cords for toys that can not only lead to broken window coverings but dangerous entanglements. That’s why we offer a wide variety of cordless and motorized window treatments to keep your pets safe while complementing the existing decor of your home with a streamlined, modern look.
Pay Attention To Safety Warnings
At Blindsource, the brands and manufacturers we use incorporate important warning tags, labels, and other methods to point out potential window covering safety hazards. These warnings communicate the important message that cords can become a potential strangulation hazard. That’s why we suggest families with small children choose from a variety of window covering products with inaccessible cords. Together with our partners, we encourage parents throughout the Treasure Valley to only install cordless window coverings in locations where infants and young children are typically located, especially where they eat, play, and sleep.
Prevention Is Key
- Never position cribs, playpens, cribs or other furniture near windows.
- Check your current window coverings for dangling, exposed cords. Move and tie cords to keep them out of reach of small children.
- If possible, replace corded window coverings with cordless or motorized options.
- Make sure to permanently anchor continuous-loop window coverings to the wall where young children can’t reach them.
