What does a Venetian blind repair service include?
There are a number of issues that Venetian blinds are prone to - from bracket problems, cord breakage, tangling, slats, and sizing problems. Your blind repair person will assess the problem and recommend the best solution, whether replacing a part, or making some adjustments. Here are some of the most common problems and solutions:
Venetian blind cord repair and replacement
Venetian blinds cord repairs can range from totally replacing the string to make a simple adjustment so it can pull smoothly again. If the string is broken, your technician will source a suitable replacement string. They’ll remove the caps and pull out the old cord, using this to measure and cut the new cord before restringing your blinds and testing them. If the cord was broken or frayed, they’ll also be sure to check for any sharp edges that might wear down the cord and ensure these are covered, sanded back, or replaced. If the blind isn’t staying up even though you’ve locked it in place, your Venetian blind repairer may need to replace the lock or reactivate your tension device. Or if your blind isn’t raising evenly or easily, it’s likely an issue with the lifting strings, so your repairer will replace these.
If your slats are bent, warped, or broken, they’ll need replacing. Your blind repairer will take the plugs off the bottom rail and undo the knots before pulling the string through to the damaged slat. They’ll remote this slat and slide on the replacement piece before rethreading the cord back through each hole. Finally, they’ll re-tie the knot and replace the plugs.
Remounting or adjusting
If your Venetian blinds are hitting something or fall out of the box brackets, they might need readjusting. Your repairer will remount your brackets so they’re the right distance apart and so that your blinds have enough clearance from obstacles. Or if you want to move your blinds to another window, your technician will be able to help. They’ll unscrew the mounting brackets and re-attach them to your new window frame - either inside the recess or above - depending on your preferences.
Venetian blind trimming
Maybe you’ve bought some new Venetian blinds that you need installed but they’re not quite the right fit? You can get your blinds trimmed to fit your window size or your technician can install the blinds so they sit in front of the window frame, rather than inside of it.
Blind tilter replacement
If your tilt mechanism isn’t working anymore, your Venetian blind repairer will be able to fix it. If the slats don’t tilt, the gear mechanism has failed and they’ll replace it. Or if the tilt wand is stiff, they may either replace the gear mechanism or switch it to a cord for easier adjusting.
