Dust is one of the worst allergens; it can make people who don’t even suffer from allergies sneeze. Therefore, when cleaning off the dust from your blinds and curtains, it is recommended that you wear a paper mask to prevent breathing it in, especially if there is a lot of dust to clean.

Solar screens are a unique product that can help raise comfort within the home and making it energy efficient space to live. These screens are designed to reflect the sun’s rays and keep the glass windows from becoming too hot and heating up the space. Many people put their solar screens on in the summer in order to keep their homes cool and comfortable, while also preventing their air conditioning system from working too hard. Homeowners throughout the High Desert region have found that these solar shades have been a valuable addition to their homes.
Solar shades will keep your home cool and comfortable. Solar shades are designed in order to reflect the sun off of the windows, and, therefore, the glass panes of your windows will not become as hot. This can help reduce the temperature of your home, and it is especially beneficial during the warm summer months. For instance, if your bedroom faces west, it can become especially hot during the afternoon hours and make it uncomfortable for when you go to bed.
Solar shades also can help protect your personal belongings, including your furniture, by reducing the amount of sun fading that occurs in your house. Many times couches, chairs and portraits that are in the sun’s glare will fade over time because of the sun’s damaging rays.
These shades will keep your home secure and private during the daylight hours, as they prevent others from easily seeing into your space. Solar shades are a darker color, and their reflective properties make it more difficult for others to see inside the house. This can increase privacy as well as your safety within your home.
They reduce the amount of glare on personal electronics, including TVs and computer screens. This allows you to enjoy watching your favorite shows and completing your work on the computer at any time of the day.
Solar window screens not only allow homeowners to enjoy their space more, but they also can add value to a home. Many homebuyers look for homes that have unique additions and features, and solar shades can fall into that category. As energy costs continue to skyrocket and the summers seem hotter than ever before, solar shades might be the perfect investment for your home.
