Window blinds and shades work hard to filter natural light, maintain privacy, and keep a house warmer on cold days & cooler on hot days. Pets, kids, and other accidents can cause unintentional damage to your window treatments. Lift Cords break for any number of reasons. Constant pulling up & down of a blind will produce friction. Friction causes heat. Heat causes weakness of parts & mechanisms. Moreover, when blinds are not working correctly, your privacy, comfort, and décor can be compromised. Although it can be unbelievably upsetting, throwing your window blinds or shades away is not the only option.
Fixing your window blinds and shades can be more difficult & frustrating than you think. A lot could go wrong. A simple fix could turn into a major repair. Also, what worst is, if you accidentally damage the material like poked a big hole into it or accidentally ripped it, then you are out of luck. Fabric & Sheer material cannot be fixed.
Most blinds & shades have enclosed headrail. You have to slide out the headrail to see the broken parts. Sometimes headrail gets caught onto the material & slice the fabric open if you don't know how to take the headrail off carefully. Most of the internal components with this type of headrail are so complicated to understand. For example the Cordless Shades, it has motors & transmissions, spools & cord guides. It takes special skills & knowledge to put them all together; otherwise, you will ruin these expensive parts.
Yes, most blinds have open headrail; therefore, it’s easy to see the broken parts internally. As you look at your blind, you figured out what’s causing of your blind to stop working. Then you tried fixing it yourself. You wonder why the parts that you ordered does not fit. It’s either too big or too small. Then you keep trying to buy the right ones until you find out how much these parts are costing you.
