Protect Your Floors & Furniture From Harmful UV Rays

UV RaysPeople often inaccurately think that UV damage occurs only during the summer months. However, during the winter, when the sun is lower on the horizon, the harsh glare and the lack of leaves allows the sun to enter farther into a room, which can cause additional UV damage without your even knowing it.
