If you are a little handy around the home you may find that you are able to repair minor blind issues yourself.
Blind Concepts are the leaders in blind repairs and replacements. We service Brisbane and its surrounding areas and offer today some ways of conducting minor blind repairs.
Please bear in mind we said if you are handy around the home. Some of these tasks should only be attempted by experienced professionals.
These blinds can look great and the beauty of them is you can colour match with your décor.
Today we are going to address some of the common complaints with this style of blind.
Slats Won’t Rotate Or Are Not In Line With Each Other: There are a couple of reasons why this may happen. They may have been hung onto the rails when the hooks were in the closed position or they have snagged against a window catch or door handle, something resting near the blinds, or each other.
In both these cases you need to turn the chain until you hear a clicking noise, keep gently turning until the clicking stops. You may have to pull the chain both ways and complete this clicking exercise.
Once you have done this you should notice that the hooks all face in the same direction, allowing you the opportunity to rehang your louvres.
These blinds look great when clean and in good repair. They do take a little more care and can be quite painful once they are a little worn. A little love will bring them back to their glory, however.
Cleaning Venetian Slats: There is no easy way around doing this at home. The only way to do this is by using a mild detergent and cleaning every single slat. Don’t try those finger slat cleaners; they look good but do very little.
Alternatively, you can take them down and pop them in the bath for a light scrub, then allow them time to dry.
As this job is so painful why not consider taking advantage of our ultrasonic cleaning service?
