Window Treatments Help Block UV Rays
UV radiation is a powerful wave-length from the sun that we cannot see. There are three types of UV rays; UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-A and UV-B are the two types of UV radiation that affects us the most. In the heat of Summer 2018, we’re all well aware of the necessity to stay safe and protect ourselves against these harmful rays. Please, always remember to apply sunscreen before heading outside.
Solar protection is just as important inside your home as it is outside. The sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate most standard windows and can damage carpeting, furniture, draperies and hardwood floors. Window coverings are the perfect solution not only to protect your valuable possessions but also reduce the heat that enters the home, optimizing energy efficiency.
