Did you know window treatment cords can pose a strangulation hazard to children?

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission calls corded window coverings one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes, with infants and children accidentally becoming entangled in window cords. It is important to put cord safety at the top of your child proofing checklist.

Gotcha Covered has launched an initiative to help consumers become aware of the dangers of window cords and help them keep their children safe. Our program is directed at both Realtors® and consumers via printed materials, website articles and more.

Making Windows Safe For Our Kids

Gotcha Covered is working with our Franchise Owners to raise awareness within the community. Ideally, parents and caregivers should replace older corded window coverings with today’s safer products. However, if replacing older window treatments is not an option, the instructions for retrofitting can be found on the Window Covering Safety Council’s website: windowcoverings.org/retrofit-your-windows/

This is just one of the many ways Gotcha Covered is partnering with our Franchise Owners to establish them as a trusted resource in the community.
