All About Exterior Solar Shades

Exterior solar shades are really useful, practical, and great looking! They are the perfect upgrade to your current setup or they make an excellent choice when building a new home from the ground up. No matter the climate or the location, exterior solar shades can help you take your shade game to the next level. Let?s learn a little more about them, shall we? What Are Exterior Solar Shades ? These are specialized shades that are affixed to the outside of our house that help create a semi enclosed indoor-outdoor living area like a screened in porch, or patio, or balcony. They allow you to relax in your furnished outdoor area without having to suffer direct sunlight and they help prevent bugs and reduce wind. All in all, they are a perfect addition to your backyard, balcony, or patio! What Do They Do? They do so much! They help to reduce incoming heat from the sun, block harsh sunlight, cut energy costs, and grant privacy in all of your semi-outdoor areas. Solar shades also help to extend the life of your furniture and decorations by blocking the sun?s harmful UV rays. They accomplish all of this while still allowing you to keep your original view of the great outdoors. You get all of the benefits of relaxing outside but none of the drawbacks. Try some out on your home today. Three Great Options For Your Screens! The first type is called a Zip Screen. This is best for outdoor room enclosures and helps prevent color fade on furniture by blocking up to 90% of the sun?s harmful heat and glare. They also provide fantastic insect protection. The last thing you want is a bunch of little flying critters trying to land in your food or drinks while relaxing out on your beautiful patio! The second type is called a Self Storing Solar Screen which helps to filter out harmful UV rays and conveniently retracts into a self-storing cassette style hood. They provide the full outdoor experience when you want it and can be deployed at a moment?s notice for when you don?t. The third we want to showcase is the Corradi USA Exterior Solar Screen system. These solve virtually every outdoor and indoor sun protection need. These are perfect for residential or commercial needs including offices, restaurants, hotels, or home patios. Conclusion This is a great time of year to invest in your happiness by upgrading your exterior shade experience. You will appreciate just how nice and inviting your backyard dining area will look afterwards! Looking for a great deal or promotion on blinds or window coverings?

Businesses can even install blinds on the sides of each Kubo module so that you can have the look and feel of ?walls? while still remaining outside. The key is customization and automation. The Pergotenda is there to fit your needs as a business owner that best serves your customer and your bottom line. Invest in your business?s future with a Kubo Pergotenda by Corradi.

Spring Cleaning Your Blinds

We can get so caught up in spring cleaning craziness that we often forget to clean that which is right in front of us: our blinds and window treatments. They are often overlooked or put off until later when doing annual spring cleaning, which is a shame because clean and dust free blinds look so great! So, here is your annual public service announcement: don?t forget to clean your blinds and window coverings this year while spring cleaning! Now that that is on your to-do list, let?s go over some great ways in which you can maximize your cleaning potential when it comes to blinds. Blinds Cleaning Method #1: Sock It To Me! Don?t have a blind cleaning attachment on your vacuum? Don?t worry! We?ve got you covered. Take an old (clean) sock and place it over your hand and then spray it with one or two spritzes of warm water and start cleaning! Wipe from side to side with the blinds fully closed at first, and then reverse the direction of the blinds and wipe the other side. Finish by going over them with a completely dry sock or microfiber cloth to get the last little bits of dust and debris. Don?t forget to sweep or vacuum afterwards because cleaning several sets of dusty blinds can put a lot of dust particles in the air and they will settle on the ground and make a mess on the floor after a while. Method # 2: How To Clean Cellular & Honeycomb Shades To clean your cellular and honeycomb shades, you will need a few different items that you may have lying around the house or they can be picked up at your local big box store. You will need a microfiber cloth, a can of compressed air (like for cleaning computer keyboards etc.), a bowl of lukewarm water with about 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and a vacuum with a brush attachment. Once you have those things, then follow these cleaning steps. Step 1. Dusting your cellular shades. Take your microfiber cloth and gently wipe the front and back of your shades from top to bottom. You may have to take the cloth outside a few times to shake the dust out. Use the can of compressed air to blow out any dust or debris within the honeycomb pockets. You will probably want to vacuum or sweep the floor afterwards as it will kick up a lot of dust. Step 2. Spot cleaning Now take your microfiber cloth and get it wet in the soapy water dish. Use the cloth to spot clean any apparent dirt patches or stains on the shades. You may have to scrub each area a few times to get stuck on grime out. Don?t be too harsh though, as that can ruin or misshape the fabric. Step 3. Vacuuming Once you have finished spot cleaning, take your vacuum with the brush attachment to the shades again starting from top to bottom. Use the lowest suction setting if possible. Once you have vacuumed both sides, then you should be done! Enjoy your new clean shades! Conclusion This is a great time of year to break out the cleaning supplies and give your window coverings, especially blinds, a good spring cleaning to keep them looking fresh and beautiful for months to come. You will appreciate just how fresh and clean your home will look afterwards! Of course, now that your home is all clean, it?s time to plan a party to show it off.

Proud BSU Home Team Sponsor

Nothing beats a brisk fall afternoon tailgating with friends and family at a BSU football game. With a warm plate of food (or two!) and a cold beverage in hand, celebrating our hometown heroes at the blue turf is something of a tradition and rite of passage around here. We love our team and whether they win, lose, or draw, the night ends the same: we?re proud to see our Broncos play. Well, we went ahead and brought our celebration up to the next level, so to speak. Recently, Blind Appeal made a donation in support of BSU in order to become an official Home Team Sponsor. We were so happy and proud to see our name up there along with our boys on the blue turf. Boise State University. A Shining Jewel In Boise?s Crown. Founded in 1932 by the Episcopal Church, Boise State University (or Boise Junior College as it was originally known) has been an integral part of Boise itself for almost 100 years. Today, there are over 70,000 living alumni in the U.S. and around the world. There are on average 24,000 students enrolled at BSU at any one time and graduates around 4,000 students each year. BSU is classified as a school of ?high research activity? as scored by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education which means that it is in a short but distinguished group of learning institutions in the U.S. that produces a significant amount of groundbreaking research each year. What Does Sponsoring Mean? How Does It Help? Being a Home Team Sponsor means so much more than having the distinct honor of being showcased among other local and national brands during a BSU Broncos football game. It means that we are an official part of the BSU history. Our donation and donations like ours help to support the current players and to pave the way for future Broncos. Donating to the BSU program means we are doing our part to ensure that future generations of Broncos and Bronco fans can enjoy the sport we so dearly love. When it comes to being a fan, becoming a Home Team Sponsor is truly putting your money where your mouth is, and we couldn?t be more proud to be a part of any other franchise. Conclusion It?s easy to see why BSU is home to not only excellence in athletics but academics as well, therefore it is no surprise that BSU?s official motto is Splendor sine Occasu , which means Splendour Without Diminishment .
