Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In Cleveland?

February 25, 2022

Your Cleveland window treatments are in UV rays all day, so it’s no wonder when they start to discolor or fade. You have to replace your window coverings in that case because they will become more unattractive over time. For more resilient window treatments that won’t fade in Cleveland, utilize Polywood® shutters. These wood substitute plantation shutters never fade or yellow in sunlight so you can use them in your brightest window sills with no problem. They also will not get stained by dirt or water damage, making them appropriate for any area of your home.

Durable, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Yellow In The Sun

Almost all window treatments fade in Cleveland if subjected to strong UV rays. Sunlight bleaches materials like fabric, plastic, and wood, spoiling the attractive appearance of your window treatments. UV rays can make many materials deteriorate over time as well, and that’s why even budget window blinds yellow in sunlight. The only way to avoid this is install window treatments that are made from UV-resistant materials, like faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Polywood shutters are louvered, interior shutters and are made from long-lasting, recyclable wood substitute. They have a baked-on white paint finish that is UV stabilized which chemically adheres to the faux wood to prevent damage and discoloration from the sun. While UV rays fade or discolor most window treatments, Polywood shutters can sit in direct sunlight for decades and never fade or turn yellow. They remain a gorgeous, pristine white that always goes with your decor.

Polywood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While the sun can cause window treatments to fade in Cleveland, water and humidity can discolor window treatments too. Fabric and wood treatments can both suffer from water staining and similar damage if you aren’t careful. If you require window treatments in humid environments like your kitchen or bathroom, use Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist damage from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water doesn’t soak into their faux-wood material, so they don’t develop water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Dirt And Stains Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can stain most window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their amazing finish avoids discoloration from dirt build-up and sticky fingerprints. And if your Polywood shutters begin to look a little gray, they’re very easy to clean.

Their sturdy, broad louvers make dusting shutters less time-consuming than cleaning loose-hanging blinds. And you won’t have the bother of getting them down for laundering and ironing like when you clean curtains. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher soil, a damp cloth and gentle scrubbing will do. And don’t worry about wiping off their finish. That resilient paint is moisture-resistant and won’t rub off on your cloth.
