Top Safety Tips for Blinds in Tacoma

(Window Coverings, Home Improvement and Decor) Permanent link   All Posts

Before installing your Tacoma blinds, you need to make sure you’re using them properly. There are many safety issues with different types of blinds. While many involve children and pets, there are other safety issues that will affect the whole family. Here are the top four safety tips for using blinds in Tacoma.

Opt for Cordless Blinds

This links to when you first buy the blinds. Make sure you choose the cordless options that will keep your whole family safe. While you may not imagine your children getting caught in the cords on blinds, it can happen. There are many stories of this happening online.

Don’t even give your children or pets chance to get caught in the blinds. They won’t know what to do to get out of the cords. Just opt for the ever-so-slightly more expensive cordless blinds.

Always Follow the Manufacturers’ Instructions

Whoever has made the blinds will have instructions for installation. Make sure you follow them. They are there for your own safety, as well as to make it easier to get your blinds up in your home. Use all the items provided to make sure your blinds don’t fall down in the middle of the night and potentially hurt someone sleeping under them.

There will be some suggestions for placement. You’ll likely see warnings for your blinds in Tacoma to help avoid various risks in the house. They include placement of other furniture, use of candles, and tips for keeping children safe. Read the warnings and follow any suggestions that you can.

Attach the Cord to the Wall

If you’ve already bought corded window coverings, you can take steps to avoid an accident. One of the best options is to securely tight the cord to the wall. You need it completely out of reach from your children, so there is no chance that they can get caught. Once out of reach, most children will also ignore that it’s there: out of sight, out of mind.

There are a few ways that you can attach the cord to the wall. Some companies even offer fasteners knowing how dangerous the cords are for families.

Keep All Furniture Away

If you do have corded Tacoma blinds, make sure all furniture is out of the way. It’s actually best to keep furniture out of the way of any blind, but the corded ones are most important. Children will climb on the furniture and will attempt to reach up for the cords. They don’t understand the danger.

When any loops or knots form, unfasten them right away. Many parents will cut the loops in cords to prevent unnecessary accidents.

Put your family first. The manufacturers will include safety and installation instructions for all Tacoma blinds. This is to keep your family safe and ensure there are no accidents at later dates. Many companies and manufacturers are now also moving into cordless-only blinds. Look out for these companies so you can find only the best blinds for your home.
