5 Ways to Take Care of Your Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a standard in many applications whether it’s in a home or a business. Even though vertical blinds are in most people’s lives, most do not know how to properly take care of them.

  1. Open the slats before drawing the blinds
  2. Don’t leave doors or windows open when the vertical blinds are drawn closed
  3. Regularly lubricate the vertical track with silicone spray lubricant. This can be purchased at most hardware stores.
  4. If the slats do not tilt and feel stuck, do not force the pull chain. Check for over lapping slats or obstructions.
  5. When drawing the blinds open or closed, go at a steady pace. Drawing them open or closed too fast can result in damage.
