Window Coverings Are NOT Supposed To Be Dangerous!

However, many Window Coverings are.

Window coverings were primarily designed to be a benefit to a household’s living conditions! They create privacy, block heat, and even are used as an aesthetic addition to the look of one’s home.

So, they were not meant to be a danger to children and pets! Even so, many window treatments were once manufactured to include a cord or chain loop. These materials have become a hazard that can potentially cause a nightmare scenario.

In fact, corded window coverings are one of the top 5 hidden dangers in American homes. In fact, children have unfortunately died from cord loop strangulation.
