For allergy sufferers, sometimes the only relief from coughing, sneezing, and watery eyes is to stay inside. Unfortunately, there may be just as many allergy triggers in your home as there are outside. If you want to improve your indoor air quality and reduce your allergy symptoms indoors, a great place to start is by replacing blinds and shutters with an automatic roller shade. The problem with blinds and shutters is that the horizontal surface is a magnet for dust, pollen, dander, and all sorts of other allergens. Automatic shades, on the other hand, are easy to wipe down and allow for more thorough window cleaning since they roll up almost all the way to the top of the window.
Besides reducing the allergens in your home, motorized window shades will also add elegance and luxury to your home.
