According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), corded window coverings are one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes, with infants and children dying each year from accidental strangling, is window cords. Since these blind and curtain cords are a serious risk for our children, Corvias Military Living wants to remind you and your family on the proper steps to staying safe. Be sure to keep all window cords out of the reach of children. This includes ensuring that all furniture and toys are away from windows and if possible, moved to another wall. Examine all shades and blinds in the home. If your home does not have the cordless blind style, make sure there are no accessible cords on the front, side, or back of the product. Do not place cribs, beds, and furniture close to the windows because children can climb on them and gain access to the cords. Make loose cords inaccessible. If the window shade has looped bead chains or nylon cords, install tension devices to keep the cord taut.
Following these tips will help keep you and your family safe from this hidden hazard. More information can be found by visiting the Window Safety Cord Council’s website windowcoverings.org.
