October Is Blind Safety Month Part 2

Continuing with your blog series this month, we are going to talk more about how you can take steps to make your home more safe for children especially when it comes to window coverings like blinds and drapes and shades. We’re going to go over some of the top safety tips that you can implement today as well as where you can find tons of other incredibly useful resources that will help keep your home safe for children in all areas beyond just window accessories.


Reduce Window Access

One of the easiest safety precautions you can do is to reduce a child’s access to the corded window covering area. Move furniture away from windows, including cribs, beds, toy chests, and tables. Make sure they are on a separate wall entirely if possible. Instruct your children to not play on or around windows or window sills and to not play with drapes or other accessories.  


Fix Dangling Cords

Next, you can go around your home and inspect your window coverings that have cords. Make sure that all dangling cords are up and securely out of the reach of children. Anchor your continuous loop cords securely to the floor and make sure that tassel cords are pulled as short as possible. 


Take The Quiz

For more safety information regarding childproofing your window areas and beyond (like the kitchen and bathroom) feel free to take about five minutes out of your day to complete the informative safety quiz provided by the Window Covering Safety Council. This quiz will help you to better childproof your home and the homes of your family and friends who will be caretakers of your children.
