Which Window Treatments Won't Fade In Orlando?

February 25, 2022

Your window treatments sit in harsh sunlight all day, so it’s no surprise when they begin to fade or yellow. You need to replace your window coverings in that case because they will look more discolored with time. For more resilient window treatments that won’t fade in Orlando, try Polywood® shutters. These wood substitute plantation shutters never fade or turn yellow in sunlight so you can use them in your sunniest window with no worries. They also will not get stained from water damage or grime, making them suitable for every area of your home.

Strong, White Polywood Shutters Never Fade Or Yellow In Bright Orlando Windows

Almost all window treatments fade in Orlando when exposed to powerful UV rays. The sun affect materials like plastic, fabric, and wood, ruining your window coverings’ color. UV rays can make many materials break down over time as well, which is why even cheap window blinds get discolored in the sun. The best way around this is using window treatments that are made from UV-resistant materials, such as faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Polywood shutters are interior shutters that have louvers and are made from a durable, recyclable wood substitute. Their baked-on white paint finish is UV stabilized and chemically adheres to the faux wood to prevent discoloration and damage from the sun. While the sun fades or discolors other window treatments, Polywood shutters can stay in the sun for decades and never turn yellow or fade. They stay a lovely, perfect white that always blends in with your decor.

Faux-Wood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While it’s true that sunlight can cause window treatments to fade in Orlando, water and humidity can discolor window coverings too. Fabric and wood treatments can both suffer from water stains and similar damage if you don’t take care. If you require window treatments in humid environments like the kitchen or bathroom, choose Polywood shutters instead. Similar to how they resist damage from UV rays, they are moisture-resistant too. Water can’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they don’t get water stains, warping, splitting, or cracks.

Dirt And Stains Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

Dirt and sticky residues can stain most window treatments, but not Polywood shutters. Their outstanding finish avoids discoloration from grimy build-up and sticky splatters. And in the event that your Polywood shutters do start to look a bit dull, they’re effortless to clean.

Their sturdy, wide louvers make dusting your shutters easier than cleaning fragile blinds. And you’ll never have the annoyance of taking them to launder and iron like when you clean drapery. If your faux-wood shutters have tougher soil, a moist cloth and gentle scrubbing will serve well. And you don’t have to worry about ruining their finish. That tough paint is moisture-resistant and won’t rub off on your cloth.
