Vertical Blinds Worn? Solutions Here


Vertical means that something is oriented up and down. This is the case with vertical blinds. However, when you are looking for a beautiful vertical blind in your own home, you want it to do what it is supposed to do. You want that vertical blind to be beautiful and to move from side to side, to rotate, and to do all of this with the same ease with which it did when you bought it. What was that condition, in case you forgot? That was with the fabric clean and smooth. That was with the PVC clean and shiny, or at least free of handprints and smudges. That was with the vertical blind control mechanism properly functioning and attached to the wall correctly.

If one of these criteria does not apply to your vertical blinds, then you have worn vertical blinds. This is not a horrible nightmare of a situation without resolve. Consider that many products are made now with the advantage that they are higher quality. Some vertical blinds have hidden benefits that you may not realize. Other blinds are relatively simple to clean and repair, and still others may simply require a replacement part to bring them back into the fold.

If the vertical blinds is made from fabric, and the pattern has become dirty, a consumer may wish to check if the material is washable. Some high quality vertical blinds fabrics are now washable. The instructions would not indicate to use the laundry machine, but a vertical blind may have its fabric washed by hand in the sink. If there are any doubts, consult the manufacturer, and failing that, test a small section of the vertical blind fabric to see if it can be cleaned safely without any damage. Take great care, many consumers have destroyed their blinds with cleaning.

Some vertical fabrics need only a light dusting. This process will not only remove dirt from the vertical blinds fabrics, but may also help to remove some of the static that caused the dirty appearance in the first place. Consider using an antistatic cloth for your cleaning purposes, and it will help for sure. There is no good reason to keep static in the verticals.

If your vertical blinds are from PVC, they can be cleaned easily by washing them in a tub. In some cases, you may be able to remove carefully the slats from the vertical blinds tracks, and wash the vanes in the yard. If you do this, be careful not to damage the track components when removing the vertical blinds pvc. This damage may make your cleaning much more expensive than expected.

If a PVC slat were missing or broken, your vertical blind would likely be ready for a replacement. This type of wear is usually a sign of age, and if the vertical blinds are broken, then it is probably time to update to the new fashions, anyway.

If the vertical blinds are not moving smoothly, or do not rotate right, try some of the following. Test the see if pulling the chain a little harder in each direction may cause the slats of the vertical to move into alignment. If that helps, or f it does not, spray some high quality silicone spray into the mechanism of the vertical blind. Silicone spray is the best solution, as it will work for the plastic and metal parts inside the system, and will not lead to deterioration of the plastics. The additional benefit f the silicone spray is that a little overspray usually will not damage other surfaces like fabrics.

Sometimes you need to simply fasten the cord pulley or weight pulley to a surface. These vertical blinds components are needed to help make sure that the blinds pull smoothly, and if they are not firm, they may jam into the track system and cause improper motion.

There is no substitute for proper maintenance, but the fact is that over time, all things wear. Vertical blinds are no different, and they do need repairs and cleaning, regardless of what the clever salesperson may have told you. Go ahead and renew the blinds, and you will see a sparkling difference in your home. It is well worth the cost, which will be low, and the results from the effort will make you feel like your home is new again.
