Wall hangings and window treatments can get destroyed during a spontaneous game of tag or hot lava innocent roughhousing a unofficial game of inside catch.

Like everything else in your house it should come as no shock that you probably already know that you will need special window treatments for kids and pets in Phoenix.

A sharp hit or a fuzzy face peeping through it can rip a slat off the cord or snap it apart. Plus, any cords dangling can become a hidden hazard for both children and animals.
Curtains may not fare any better with kids or animals. Because they hang loosely from one rod above the frame, they can torn down with a few good tugs. Curtains that extend to the ground are the right height for crawling babies or curious pups to grab onto.
