October is National Window Covering Safety Month

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found corded window coverings as one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes, with infants and children accidentally becoming entangled in window cords.

The Window Covering Safety Council urges parents and caregivers to check their window coverings for exposed or dangling cords which can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children.

WCSC recommends that only cordless window coverings or window coverings with inaccessible cords be used in homes with young children.
