Aftercare For Venetian Blinds

Look after your Venetian blinds by following the straightforward operating instructions below:

Operating

  • The cord on the Venetian operates the height of the blind.
  • The wand operates the angle of the slats.
  • To raise the blind pull the cord down until the blind reaches your desired height, pull the cord away from the face of the blind to lock it into position.
  • To lower the blind pull the cord across the face of the blind to release the cord lock and let the cord slide gently through your fingers.
  • To adjust the angle of the slats, twist the wand until they are at the desired angle.
  • When raising and lowering, the blinds slats should be in the open position.
  • Please note: Venetians do not close totally - it is the nature of the product.

Cleaning

  • Your Venetians simply need to be dusted.
  • Use a Ostrich Feather Duster (available from this web site), a damp cloth or vacuum cleaner with a wall-cleaning attachment.
  • Care should be taken not to bend the slats while cleaning.
  • If your blind becomes very dirty, use a damp cloth with clean water. Dry thoroughly.
  • We do not recommend using any soap or detergent!
  •   Anti-Static cleaning cloths are suitable.
WARNING: In the interest of safety, it is advisable to keep all pull cords and chain/bead cords out of the reach of children.
 

After Care For Vertical Blinds

Operating

  • The side chain operates the angle of the louvers.
  • The cord opens and closes the blind.
  • Pull gently on either to create your desired effect.
  • Occasionally, one of the louvers may look out of alignment; if this is the case then pull the chain until all the louvers are back in alignment again,[whilst aligning you may experience some resistance until the misaligned louver is back in place].
  • If the side chain connector reaches the head rail, preventing louver rotation, simply pull the control chain in the opposite direction until the connector is at the bottom of the loop.
  • From time-to-time use a silicon based furniture polish inside the head rail to ensure the louver's glide smoothly.

Cleaning

  • Before removing the louver's from the head rail, unclip the chain at the bottom of the louver and slide out the weights.
  • To unhook the louver's, hold the top of the louver, tilt at 45 degrees to the hook and pull the clip out of the hook.
  • Remove the plastic hangers in the top of the louver and lay the louver's separately on a flat surface and, using a mild detergent, clean each louver by wiping from top to bottom with a slightly damp soft cloth. Don't press too hard and don't rub the louver.
  • Hang the louver's until completely dry. They should not be hung in direct sunlight.
  • Replace the weights while the blind is drying.
  • DO NOT TUMBLE DRY. DO NOT IRON.
  • Replace the top hangers, hang the louver's on the track and replace weights and chains.
WARNING: In the interest of safety, it is advisable to keep all pull cords and chain/bead cords out of the reach of children.
