Our homes are often our biggest investments. The sun’s rays can cause similar damage to a home’s furniture, flooring, and furnishings as it does to your skin. If your upholstery, carpeting, wood flooring, or furniture are exposed to long-term sunlight you may have already noticed the sun’s effect – fabrics fade, wood furniture and flooring discolors. Even your artwork, photos, lampshades, and books may be at risk.
But there is good news! Medical advances over the years have produced improved sun blocking lotions and clothing to better protect our skin. Similar technologies are being used for our home’s window treatments to produce fabrics that better protect the furnishings in our homes. The right window treatments or shades can help protect your home and your investment.
