Whether you have children, grandchildren, or nieces and nephews, having little ones in your home can be stressful. This is especially true if you haven’t child-proofed anything. It can be next to impossible to keep a constant eye on children, and all it takes is a few seconds for a little one to get in trouble. One of the first things you need to child-proof are your window treatments, especially if you have blinds. The pull cords on blinds often form loops that present a suffocation risk to children. At Arjay’s, we know just what it takes to make blinds child-safe, and we believe that you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for safety.

If you have outdated blinds, it’s probably in your best interest to invest in new ones with better safety systems. However, we would be happy to consult with you on ways to child-proof your current blinds if necessary. In general, your main goal is going to be to eliminate the risk presented by the blinds’ pull cord.  In our previous blog, we discussed the value of cord cleats and separate tassels. Today, we have a few more ways you can tackle the pull cord issue.
