The Most Common Repairs for Window Blinds

Living room with new blinds

Window blinds are built strong and will last many years before you ever have a problem with them. But like everything in your home, even blinds have a shelf life.

Especially if you have small children or pets in your home, you may have recently noticed that your blinds have seen better days. No matter the issue you’re facing, our on-site repair team can conquer almost any window covering repair — saving you time and the expense of getting entirely new window treatments!

Common Window Blind Problems

Broken Slats

Slats are the long, usually horizontal pieces of wood, faux wood, or plastic that make up your blinds. Not only is a broken or missing slat unsightly, but it can affect your privacy and light control. If you do have a broken slat, we often suggest simply replacing that one piece vs. buying an entirely new blind.

Tilt or Lift Problems

If your slats won’t rotate open and closed, you’ll again be facing privacy and light control issues. If the tilt rod twists, but none of your slats move, the tilt mechanism has likely stripped out or broken outright. Luckily, our team can identify these issues, replace any damaged parts, and leave your blinds working good as new!

Lift String Damage

Nothing’s more frustrating than tangled or damaged strings. Afterall, the lift cord is the main way you control the height of your blinds. Fortunately, some of the most common types of cord damage can be prevented by opting for motorized window treatments! If you are not ready for new window treatments, we can replace missing, damaged, or severely tangled strings.

Shortening Blinds

Not only do horizontal blinds that are too long for your window look awkward, but they’re also a safety hazard for children and pets. Thankfully, having them shortened to meet the base of your window is something we are very good at!

At Bloomin’ Blinds, our greatest priority is your comfort and satisfaction. That is why we offer a wide variety of motorized blinds, shutters, and shades to meet all your needs. Contact us today to find your nearest Bloomin’ Blinds!
