Common Problems with Blinds

When it comes to blinds, there is very little maintenance involved. Things can go wrong, however. Cords can deteriorate and break, slats can snap or bend and runners may need to be replaced from time to time.

You can fix some of these issues, but for others, you will need to call in a professional blinds repair company.

Some Common Problems:

Vertical Blinds

You may find that the stem that holds the slats in place is broken. In some cases, this is going to be quite difficult to repair but with newer blinds, this problem has been given some consideration and the stems are usually replaceable nylon ones.

The easiest way to know is by the age of the blinds – any blinds made prior to 2000 will not have replaceable nylon stems. Another way to tell is by looking at the stem itself – if it has yellowed or won’t come out easily, it is not nylon and repairs should be left to the professionals.

If it is nylon, you can have a go at repairing it yourself if you feel confident enough. Do some research first to make sure that you can find the matching stem. If you are unsure, it is best left to professionals – messing up this repair could mean needing a new set of blinds.

A common problem with vertical blinds is that the cords are subjected to a fair amount of wear and tear and they may snap after a while. This is always caused by friction and can be due to the angle at which the cords are being pulled.

Using the wrong angle causes undue friction on the cord or can make it jump the wheels altogether increasing the likelihood of snapping. Should the cord be pulling tightly, check to see if you can ease it back onto the wheel.

Once the cord has snapped, you have to have the track restrung.

Horizontal Blinds

Valances that fall off tend to be a common problem here and this is usually due to the valance clips breaking. A quick fix is to use a strip of Velcro to put the valance back up. The chances of being able to find the right size clip are slim.

If the cords snap here, you could attempt to fix them with a knot. Restringing will generally be more expensive than having a replacement blind put in, so consider this option carefully.

Cellular Blinds

In general, broken cords are the worst problem here. If your cord is on a continuous loop, it is pretty simple to replace if it breaks. Should the cord not be on a continuous loop, you will have to have it restrung. This may work out costly so get a quote first.

By and large though, blinds are easy to maintain and not very troublesome at all.

 

A Budget Friendly Option for Replacing Blinds

In today’s world we tend to live in a throwaway society – if something
starts looking a bit old or is slightly damaged, we tend to throw it out and
replace it.

This is not good for our budgets or the environment and so many people
have started to look for an alternative way of living.

Damaged Blinds

When it comes to blinds, it may seem that there is little alternative to
replacing the entire set because of damage to some of the slats or parts.

Blind Concepts offer a convenient and economic solution to replacing a full
set of blinds. They offer a replacement service.

Basically. they will come in and inspect the blinds. Slats or portions of the
blinds that are too badly damaged are removed and replaced. The undamaged parts
of the blinds are left in place.

Financial Benefits

For the consumer, this means that they are not paying for something that they
don’t need and this can result in significant savings in terms of money and time
– you don’t need to worry about uninstalling your old blinds or re-installing
new ones.

It is also a great way to get your blinds to last that much longer.

Environmental Benefits

For the environment, replacing only the damaged portions means a significant
reduction in waste materials that need to be disposed of. Considering that there
are fewer resources required to replace damaged portions as opposed to whole sets
of blinds, the environmental impact of manufacturing is also reduced.

Revamp the Room

You can also use the replacement service offered by Blind Concepts to create
a fresh new look in a budget-friendly manner. You can choose to have a new set
of slats placed in the existing fittings.

You can choose a different colour, finish or even a different type of
material.

This is a great way to give your room a quick update – replace old fashioned
slats with a more contemporary or classic look that will not date as quickly.

It can also help to create a totally warmer or cooler look in your rooms.
Wooden slats are very good for creating a warmer feel whereas aluminium slats
tend to make a cooler impression.

By using a blind replacement service, you can rest assured that you are
making a wise move financially and an environmentally responsible move as well.
Get a whole new look with a clear conscience and without breaking the bank.
