Blinds can provide you with a decade of sunlight control without much maintenance. An occasional clean should do the trick and they are easily repaired if they get damaged. But there are some signs to look out for which may indicate it is time to get new blinds. Broken blinds aren’t normal wear and tear; normal wear and tear includes frayed material and cords, discoloration and kinks in your blinds. This guide will explain when you need to think about replacing yours.
When your blinds start getting difficult to raise or adjust, they aren’t providing you with the benefits they should be. The main job of blinds is to provide moveable slats to control the amount of sunlight entering your home and offer privacy when needed. If yours aren’t doing that you should purchase some that should. We offer motorised blinds, giving you total control remotely, meaning no more manual raising of the blinds every morning and every night.
Over time, sun bleaching can discolour and yellow your fabric blinds. Deep cleaning your blinds can be time-consuming as you have to detach all the individual blinds and soak them in warm, soapy water before drying them and reattaching them. This might not be worth the effort when your blinds stop coming out from a wash looking like new. If your blinds have deteriorated this much, it’s time to refresh yours. We offer a free measure and quote so you can toss up buying new blinds for your home. It will give your home a brand new lease of life.
