Window Treatment Wednesday: Installation Safety

safe window treatments

LiteRise, motorized and cordless window treatments are designed with safety in mind.

When you’re installing your beautiful new window coverings, we want to make sure that you’re careful and staying safe. Did you know that falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury in the U.S.? They cause about 8 million visits to the emergency room every year. June is National Safety Month, and we don’t want you to be in that number!

When you’re installing your window treatments, please start by thoroughly reading the directions. Most of the window coverings at Hirshfield’s are professionally installed, but at times homeowners do the installation themselves.

{window treatment wednesday: window coverings to block noise}

Add some peace and quiet to your home by using the right window coverings.

How to block noise with window treatments.You know what they say about buying a home—location, location, location. When you choose where you want to live, there are numerous factors: proximity to work, good neighborhood schools, the character of the neighborhood, quality of parks and recreational trails—the list goes on and on. And sometimes you’ll choose to live somewhere that’s relatively noisy because the other “pros” are so abundant. I once lived near a small airport. Although it was usually quiet, once a week, large tandem military Chinook helicopters would fly in the area. They were so loud, it sounded like they were going to land on my roof!

I understand and sympathize with people who have a house they love but an exterior noise problem they loathe. How can window treatments block noise, keep your house quieter and increase your feeling of calm and serenity?

Andrea Mandel is a Minneapolis window coverings expert at Hirshfield’s. She says that when it comes to blocking noise, anything in front of a window will help, with the amount of reduction determined by the materials and product features you choose and whether the window covering is open, closed, raised or lowered. Some manufacturers, such as Hunter Douglas, rate their products’ ability to absorb sound to guide homeowners. Read the rest of this entry »

I was in our Roseville store at the end of the last Hunter Douglas sale and a number of phone calls were customers wanting to take advantage of the sale, and some needing an on-site measure. With it being the day before the sale ended, the staff did their best to accommodate the customers.

If you’re wanting to take advantage of this sale, make the call sooner than later, or stop by one of our stores and speak with one of Hirshfield’s window treatment specialists.

A great deal is the free LiteRise® cordless lifting system you’ll receive if you purchase a Silhouette® window shade.
