When you are considering window blinds in Los Altos Hills, CA, one of the things that you should include in your selection process is the safety of your home, especially if you have small children – whether you’re parents or grandparents – and pets in your home.
Safety is one of your primary concerns in your home. You have doors with locks, windows with locks, and gates with locks as one of your safety measures around your home. Within your home, you also make sure that it is safe for everyone, including your little ones and your pets.
There are many hidden dangers within a home. We take great care to make sure we know the hidden dangers and we address them. We childproof our homes as soon as little ones make their appearance.
We take harmful chemicals out of lower cabinets or we install locking devices on these cabinet doors so they can’t easily be opened so that our kids don’t accidentally ingest poisonous substances.
We put protective covers over unused electrical outlets to prevent accidental electrocution. We have stovetops with locks that keep the burners from being turned on accidentally, which could either burn our little ones or start a fire, or both.
However, we don’t always think about the possible danger that the hanging cords from window blinds pose to our children and pets. However, on average, twenty-four children die each year because they became entangled in hanging cords from blinds.
The solution to getting rid of this serious safety risk is having cordless Hunter Douglas window blinds installed.
