It is recommended that all window treatments in children and infant rooms as well as play areas are replaced with cordless window treatments. All other rooms should have window treatments replaced with safer window technologies if bought before 2001 as stated by the Window Covering Safety Council. Even after the installation of cordless window treatments, cribs and child beds should be moved away from the windows. In rooms without cordless window treatments, regularly check that cords are organized and tucked out of the reach of children.
