Step14

A few reminders:

1- Loose parts that are attached to a blind will come loose or break during transport, so to help you not to lose these parts, please leave them at home.

2- We recommend when you transport them to STAND THEM UP (headrails on top,slats on bottom), and not to stack them ESPECIALLY if you have a wands that tilt your blinds. These tend to break during transport if you stack them on top of each other.

3- Don’t forget to make a note of any issues and let us know the BLIND # and what the issue is when you arrive.

4- Oh yeah, and don’t forget that clip and valance.

Step13

This is the most important step.

Get a PERMANENT marker and label this blind #1 (or a room abreviation). This way you will know that when you started at your FIRST window this is where the blind went.

This is a great step to get a piece of paper and pen, and make any notes on this if you have anything wrong that needs to be fixed or repaired. Just write the window # down, and a description of the problem. We can typically fix some of the issues at the time of cleaning.

Please know that all blinds are made to fit each window specifically and there is no blind that will fit exactly back if you don’t do this step.

Remember we clean with water, so PLEASE don’t use tape, or a pen or anything that will come off with water. We recommend using a permanent marker. Make sure that you write on the headrail of the blind where the BRACKET closes and will covers your writing when reinstalled .

Now you will want to repeat these steps until you are done. As you will find out the first 2 windows will take you a little bit longer but it will get easier as you go.

Step12

Most blinds have accessories such as clips and wands attached to the blind. Please remove all these parts and leave them at your home.

The valance clips tend to get YELLOW and brittle, so if they BREAK don’t worry, just bring ONE UNBROKEN clip and/or a valance so we can match it. We have most clips in stock.

You see that the clip that comes off easily, just don’t pull to hard. I tend to push up and twist a bit to remove it from the blind.

Step11

Some blinds have cord tilters (instead of a wand) on the other side of the headrail, to open and close your slats. You will want to repeat this step again to that side to make sure that all STRINGS are tightly wrapped.

If your blinds have the wand as the tilter, you do not need do this, but remove the wand if it is still attached. You can leave that at home.

Step10

See here that we finished wrapping the strings around the blind but we left about 6-8” of string undone.

Now take the remainder of the string and go ahead and wrap the string between the bottom rail and the bottom slat. Repeat this step until all the remainder of the string is pretty much gone.

We ask that you do not to use, zipties, string, rope or anything to tie your blinds together. If you do this step you will not have an issue with the strings coming undone.

Step9

Put the one side of the blind on your leg. Grab the strings tightly. If the slats are still loose, this is the time that you can pull on the strings to tighten/raise the slats to the top so they won’t get damaged during transport.

You want to pull the strings toward the bottom of the blind, then start wrapping the strings around the headrail.

You see here that we went down, around the back of the blind, and back down around the blind to where we started.

It is easier at this point to slightly tug the strings to be a little tighter, then repeat wrapping the strings around the blind.

Step8

Set the blind on the ground.

Step7

This stage you can do by yourself or get someone to help you if the blind is larger. If you do it by yourself, stand more in the middle of the blind as you pull the blind out of the window to even out the weight of the blind. Just make sure that you have the weight balanced.

As you can see the blind is starting to come out. This woman is pulling the blind out of the bracket a bit, then she moves her hands to the middle of the blind to balance the weight.

Continue to pull the rest of the blind out of the window and lay it on the ground.

 

Step6

Now that you have the blind all the way up, you may need a flat head screw driver.

First try this: With your thumb or a screw driver you will want to press underneath the bracket then the cover should swing open from the bottom.

Once you have done this the bracket will open toward the top. As you can see, the bracket arm is now facing up.

If you can’t seem to get that to release, use the screw driver to help push the bracket underneath up a bit to release the cover.

You do not need to do BOTH brackets but it makes it a bit easier to get it in and out of the brackets if you do.
