The Top Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Cleveland

December 16, 2021

Your canine friends adore gazing out your windows and snoozing in a sunbeam, but pups can be tough on window treatments. They swipe at them, gnaw them, and tear them down. While no treatment is 100% unbreakable, faux-wood shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments in Cleveland. These beautiful shutters will not crumble easily, clean up without effort, and bring every member of your family--slobbery ones too--several ways to get natural light, privacy and the scenery.

Polywood Shutters Are Tough Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Cleveland

Window coverings like window shades, curtains, and blinds look lovely in your house, but with their dangling cords, all it takes is a single chomp from your pup to pull them down or damage them. Polywood shutters are great dog-proof window treatments for Cleveland families, given their durability. They have solid Polywood panels that attach to the frame around your window opening and won’t dangle down like curtains or drapery or snap with a small bump like blinds. Interior shutters don’t have wands or cords for your pup to gnaw on or get wrapped up in either. Fifi can swipe at your interior shutters and rub her back against the louvers all she can without breaking them. And if the mongrel makes a chew toy out of a louver, that one louver can be replaced without having to replace the entire window treatment.

Polywood Shutters Let Your Animal Peek Outside

Every puppy needs to look outdoors, but you shouldn’t want passersby peeking in at you. Polywood shutters use solid louvers that you can tilt open just to get your furry friend a peek outside without killing your privacy. Polywood shutters can also be custom-made to work with odd windows like picture windows and sidelights. If your pup paws at the side window when deliveries come, install Polywood shutters so that it can check if it’s a barkable stranger up to no good.

You are able to direct natural light with Polywood shutters also. If you need to keep an area dim and cool during the warmest part of the day, but Fluffy likes to lie in the sun, angle the louvers to direct sunlight to the floor. Or install shutters featuring a split tilt rod. This option lets you open up the lower louvers for the hound and keep the top ones closed to stop sun glare.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up After Your Dog Quick And Easy

Like other rugs and furniture, window coverings can be covered with dog fur and dander. You can attempt many tricks to clean up, but de-griming Polywood shutters is fairly simple. Just wipe them with a static duster or cloth, and they’ll remain hair-free. If you sind grubby foot prints or nose smudges on a shutter panel, a wet cloth works just fine. As for ”wet” messes, Polywood shutters happen to be moisture-resistant. If your dog runs in from hazardous weather and shakes off the fur, or your rambunctious puppy slobbers on your interior shutters, just scrub them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Repaired Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are defintely durable but not undestroyable. If Fido sees your louvers as a chew bone, he might leave some chaos. Luckily, Polywood shutters are straightforward to mend. Unlike a busted window shade or broken blinds that need to be thrown away, you can contact Sunburst Shutters Cleveland to replace separate shutter louvers. You’ll still use your window treatments while you wait, and once we repair them, your coverings will look new.
