Curtain or Shutters, Which One is More Friendly to Allergic?

Curtains are one of the popular window covering products. However, they are not easy to clean frequently. Without cleaning in a long time, dirty curtains may cause serious damage to your health.


disadvantages of curtains

1. Curtains will accumulate allergens and dust

Curtain fabrics usually attract a lot of allergens and dust. These are the two main causes of allergic reactions, such as sneezing, coughing or runny nose. Due to their small size, they are easily blown away by the wind and accumulate on the curtains after a period of time, especially cotton curtains. Certain curtains are worse offenders when they accumulate dust, especially those that are made up of thicker fabrics and multiple curtain layers. Allergens and dust mites are sandwiched between two layers, thus increasing the chance of allergic symptoms.

2. Germs

Bacteria are one of the main causes of human and pet diseases. What most people don't know is that they like to fix themselves to curtains (mainly curtains hanging in dark areas). Because of their small size, you can't see them at all.

3. Dust and toxins

All curtains in the home can quickly collect dust and toxins. Mainly if the curtain material is thick and dark in color.


How to solve the disadvantages of curtains

You can easily solve these problems by replacing your curtains with shutters. Both Wood shutters and PVC shutters are great choices for your home. Shutters are very easy to clean, all you need is a damp wipe and they will look like new.

PVC shutters are very suitable for humid area like bathroom and kitchen, and you can use PVC shutters in every room you like and no need to worry about mold or mildew.


If you or your family are allergic to dust and mite, we suggest you to use shutters instead of curtains. Contact Goodwood Shutters to know more.
