Vertical blinds are a great option for finishing your home, as they are both versatile and budget-friendly. In addition, they allow for a lot of light control and are safe for small children. Click here if you’d like to know more about the benefits of installing vertical blinds in your home.
While vertical blinds may attract less dust and dirt than other types of blinds, they may still need to be cleaned every once in a while. At least once a year, you should remove your blinds to wash them properly. Make sure to check the fabric type before you clean them, otherwise, you risk damaging your vertical blinds.
If you’ve had your vertical blinds installed by the dedicated team at Decor, you can feel confident that it’s been done correctly, and the removal and reinstallation process should be pretty straightforward. By following the steps in this guide, you can ensure there will be no damage to your vertical blinds, and they’ll be functional for many years to come.

Removing your vertical blinds
1. Open up the blinds and move them to one side
Move the blinds into the open position and push all of the blades to one side using your wand. Then, grab the bottom of the stack and roll them upwards into a nice loose roll.
2. Take the blinds off the window
Gently lift the slats off the runner and let them dropdown. We suggest placing a removable label on them so you can easily figure out what window they belong to. You can then place them into a bag to keep them safe.
3. Remove the track
Hold the track with one hand and put your fingers behind the bracket to find a spring release. Push the spring release up and tilt the track, then continue to hold it and release the other side. You should store the track with the wand up against it, then strap it gently to avoid damage
Reinstalling your vertical blinds
1. Reinstall the track
Start by putting the front part of the bracket into the groove. Next, push the back of the track in until you hear it click and then do the same on the other side. Make sure that both sides have clicked in before going onto the next part.
2. Put the slats back in the window
Ensure that the track runners are at a 90-degree position. Then click up each slat individually into the runners. Once all slats are clicked in, gently roll the bundle down, so they are now hanging freely. If you find that one of the slats are not sitting correctly, you can turn the wand until you hear a clicking noise, which realigns the runners.
