Guide to blinds wear and tear

Blinds are constantly being pulled, adjusted, opened and closed multiple times per day which means they rack up a lot of mileage when it comes to usage. Not many other furnishings in your home receive the same kind of treatment as blinds. Even when they aren’t being fiddled with, they are often blocking strong and potentially dangerous rays of sun from overheating your home and discolouring furniture. That’s why the blinds we stock at Total Look Blinds are made of the most durable materials available on today’s market.

Despite the trust we have in our products, wear and tear can occur over time. You just need to know how to fix it and when to replace blinds. 10-year-old blinds, for example, may be due for replacement after a long life of service to your home. For younger blinds, however, some problems that can be easily fixed.

Mechanism: Lifting, lowering and tilting your blinds can take its toll eventually and cause a malfunctioning mechanism. This can be an easy fix by locating the cord lock mechanism in the headrail where the lift cords run through and pushing the pin in it to disengage the cords. So long as there isn’t severe damage to the blinds, you or a professional can repair your blinds so they are working as new.

Fabric: Heat and humidity can cause damage such as discolouration, fraying or warped blinds. If a couple of slats suffer more than others, they can be individually replaced rather than having the expense of replacing your whole set of blinds. Ask our team for advice on how to prevent these issues from occurring. 

One of the best ways to ensure longevity when it comes to blinds is by using an expert installer. At Total Look Blinds, we offer comprehensive commercial blind installation services. Our team can install Thermalite blinds, and shutters as well as our popular range of venetians, verticals, and PVC blinds.
