Make Old Blinds Like New: Blinds Repairs

Does it sound enticing to make your old blinds like new again?  I thought so.  Often times, we can refurbish your old blinds to make them run more smoothly.  Blinds Repairs are an economical choice to ensure longevity out of your blinds!  General wear and tear as well as misuse can lead to some common issues that we can easily fix.  See below for the common issues customers encounter.

Common Issues

Restring blinds

We see a lot of the same problems with blinds.  Customers tend to call us to repair common issues.  These can include:

  • Venetian Blinds pulling up skew
  • Blinds losing their ability to remain in the upright position
  • Venetian Blinds lowering skew
  • Missing Parts: Valance clips, bottom bar buttons
  • Damaged Venetian Blind valance
  • Broken Venetian Blind slat
  • Broken or missing toggles

The good news is that The Decor Connection Blinds can solve these common issues.  We maintain stock of parts from all major manufacturers.  Our knowledgeable repairs team is able to modify parts to fit older and newer blinds.

Blinds Repairs: What If The Damage Is Too Extensive

I get asked by customers, “What if the damage is too extensive?”  On occasion, we do receive blinds that are irreparable.  In this case we give our customers a quotation for the repairs as well as a quotation for a new blind.  Our policy is to advise a customer with honesty whether or not the blind is worth spending money to repair.  While repairs do cost less, generally, than new blinds, a warranty on a new blind is enticing to some of our customers.  Whatever your preference we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

 

In the event that your blind is brought into our offices for repairs and the repairs are more extensive than what was quoted, we will alert you to the increased pricing before proceeding.  This is unless the customer tells us to go ahead regardless of repairs necessary.

Can We Offer A Wash?

Very often a customer brings a blind for repairs that has accumulated a lot of dust and grime over the years.  We like to ask our customers “Can we offer a wash with your repair?”  It’s lovely to have a blind working as new again but a newly cleaned blind not only functions as new but also looks new again.  When our team of technicians washes your blinds, we do it with the utmost care and professionalism.  This means alerting you, our customer, should the blind be too brittle for cleaning.  Very old Vertical Blinds, for instance, might not fare well with a cleaning.  The material might be too worn and damaged.  Then you’d need to decide if it’s worth the repair without the clean.

 

You might be wondering why you can’t clean your blinds yourselves.  Even with general upkeep and dusting, blinds tend to be dust collectors.  If you’re not careful, then cleaning your blinds can lead to damaging them.  Our expert team is knowledgeable about what cleaners we can and can’t use and how to handle the blinds with care that they don’t get damaged during the cleaning process.

 

Special Offers

For existing customers, The Decor Connection Blinds offers special discount for customers who have already purchased blinds from our company.  This also means new customers purchasing blinds for the first time can also take advantage of specials on repairs and cleaning on their existing blinds.
