FAQs About Shutters, Blinds, and Shades
At Blinds South, Inc., we’re dedicated to providing Miami homeowners with two things: excellent products, and high quality customer service. As an established, reliable, and trusted Miami Shutter Company, we’re dedicate to giving you the best service possible at every job. With that in mind, here are a few of the questions we get asked most often:
What Energy Efficient Products Do You Have Available?
One of the best ways to keep you Miami home energy efficient is to keep the heat out, and our heat-reducing, energy efficient window treatments can help out tremendously with that. There are plenty of shutters, blinds, and drapes available that can help with heat reduction to an extent, but if you need serious help, we recommend UV Shades. These shades block out all ultraviolet light, which will keep your home cooler at all times, and you won’t be paying as much money to maintain a comfortable temperature.
What is the Difference Between Real and Faux Wood?
Wood blinds are typically made from a hardwood called basswood, which is very durable and looks great when it’s stained. Cedar and pine are also frequently used, and their grains and knots can be extremely attractive. Wood blinds usually come with a warranty that lasts four to ten years, and they need to e properly cared for or they can easily be damaged.
Faux wood, on the other hand, doesn’t sustain damages very easily at all. Some faux wood blinds have hollow centers, but outs are reinforced with an aluminum core to make them much more durable and long-lasting. Faux wood can be made to have the appearance of any real woods.
What Window Treatments are Best for Specialty Windows?
Because specialty windows could be any size or shape, window shutters are usually your best option for treatments because they can also be specially designed to be any shape or size. Plus, their aesthetics are usually a great way to enhance specialty windows, and they’ll match the subtlety and sophistication that your specialty windows have.
Of course, there are many more options for treatments for your specialty windows, and our professionals can assist you in finding which are right for your home during a free in-home consultation.
How Do I Clean My Window Treatments?
All window treatments have different cleaning needs and need to be cared for in different ways. Some can be cleaned with simple dry methods and need to be dusted and vacuumed regularly. Others can be cleaned with soap and water, but some can be easily damaged by this, especially, for instance, those made out of wood.
Every window treatment is different, and our professionals will make sure you know how to properly care for yours.
