Childproof Your Home with Child-safe Features for Window Treatments

When it comes to taking care of your little ones, there’s a lot to keep in mind. As a parent, you’re more than likely aware of all the danger your kids can get into. This is why you’ve taken the proper steps to make sure your home is childproofed. But what about your window treatments? October is safety awareness month, so we want to emphasize the importance of child-safe features for window treatments.

Don’t Put Safety On the Back Burner

While it’s scary to think of, accidents happen in the blink of an eye. When it comes to your kids, their curiosity and creativity can be dangerous in the wrong environment. The dangers of your home change as your kids grow. What was once just stopping them from putting things in their mouth changed into making sure they don’t accidentally play with something dangerous.
