What Window Treatments Won't Fade In St. George?

February 25, 2022

Your St. George window treatments hang in direct sunlight all day long, so it’s no surprise when they begin to fade or yellow. You need to replace your window coverings if this happens because they will gradually become worse over time. For more enduring window treatments that won’t fade in St. George, use Polywood® shutters. These faux-wood plantation shutters don’t ever fade or yellow in UV light so you can install them in your brightest window with no problem. They also won’t get stained by water damage or dirt, making them perfect for every window in your abode.

Strong, White Polywood Shutters Won’t Fade Or Turn Yellow In Sunny St. George Windows

Most window treatments fade in St. George when exposed to strong UV rays. Sunlight bleaches materials like fabric, wood, and plastic, ruining your window treatments’ color. UV rays can cause many materials to deteriorate over time as well, which is why even budget window blinds turn yellow in sunlight. The only way to avoid this is using window treatments that are made from UV-resistant materials, like faux-wood Polywood shutters.

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

Faux-Wood Shutters Avoid Discoloration From Moisture And Mold

While the sun can cause window treatments to fade in St. George, water and humidity can also discolor window treatments. Wood and fabric treatments can both suffer from water staining and similar damage if you aren’t careful. If you need window treatments for a humid environment like the kitchen or bathroom, use Polywood shutters instead. Just like they resist harm from UV rays, they are also moisture-resistant. Water can’t penetrate their faux-wood material, so they don’t get water stains, warping, cracks, or splitting.

Stains And Dirt Won’t Discolor Polywood Shutters Either

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

Their sturdy, broad louvers make dusting your shutters easier than cleaning fragile blinds. And you won’t have the trouble of getting them to launder and iron them like when cleaning curtains. If your shutters have more stubborn grime, a damp cloth and a little rubbing are enough. And don’t worry about wiping off their finish. That strong coating resists moisture and won’t come off on your cloth.
