We want your home to be a safe place for family and friends alike. As we usher in warmer weather, and the opening of windows, let’s review some potential window hazards and solutions.
Many newer models of window shades are cordless, as they are now incorporated into the design. If you have any shades with cords, make sure they are not a temptation to smaller children that may want to pull or try to swing from them. You could use a cord wind-up device to keep dangling cords out of reach or cut the cords so they do not reach to the base of the window. Cord cleats, which allow you to wrap the cord in a figure eight manner are also a great option to keep excess cords out of the way.
