Blind Maintenance

On order to keep your Blindology Blinds looking their best, we have a few recommendations. Blindology Blinds are designed for a long life of trouble-free service. By following these simple care instructions you will keep the blind looking good for many years.

We recommend that the all types of Blindology Blinds should be regularly dusted with a feather duster or a vacuum cleaner with appropriate brush attachments.

Vertical Blinds


The louvres will benefit from regular dusting with a feather duster, carefully brushing with a soft brush, or by using a vacuum cleaner set on low/lowest suction power. They can also be gently wiped with a damp cloth that has been thoroughly squeezed out.


Certain fabrics can be washed as follows:


Washable fabrics can, if necessary, be ironed using a steam iron on a medium setting. We would recommend using a towel to stop any stains from transferring from your iron onto the fabric.

Venetian Blinds

Wood Venetian Blinds

Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Roller Blinds

The Roller blind fabric will benefit from regular cleaning by dusting with a feather duster, carefully brushing with a soft brush, or by using a vacuum cleaner set on low suction power.

Small stains can be removed as follows:


Frequently Asked Questions about Window Blinds

We often get asked questions about our service and our range of blinds, or for advice on taking measurements and fitting blinds correctly. Here are our answers to the most common queries. We hope you find them useful!

If your question isn't answered here or if you need further information, contact us here or phone us on 01752 667252.

What guarantee is supplied with my blinds?

All of our blinds are supplied with up to a 6-year guarantee; this is dependent on type of blind required (most made to measure blind companies only supply a 12 month guarantee).

Why are no prices displayed on the web site?

Due to the fact that all windows have varying drops and widths, this would complicate trying to supply you with a price, also that all the fabrics are in ranges A – F, these ranges vary in price according to quality.

Can you give me a quote?

Yes. We can supply you with a free no obligation quote & fitting.

Are you insured?

Yes, we have full and current Public Liability insurance, a copy of which can be seen before any work is carried out.

Do you provide an installation service?

Yes. All of our products you purchase come with free fitting. 

Also we can at times install ready purchased blinds. There is a charge for this, but it can sometimes turn out to be more expensive than purchasing directly from us.

How quickly will my Vertical/Venetian/Roller blinds be dispatched?

We make every effort for your order to be delivered in 7 working days. We cannot give you a specific day or time. This is dependent on stock and availability.

Do you supply to commercial or trade businesses?

Yes - Blindology can supply to commercial/trade businesses and welcome all tenders or enquiries.

Can we buy Louvres only?

Blindology can supply louvres only for your Vertical blind. Available in 89mm and 127mm Louvre widths. If you contact us here or visit we will be able to help. Just replacing your louvres only doesn't always work out a lot cheaper, as it depends on the age of your headrail, let us supply you with a price and you may just be surprised!

The louvres of my Vertical blinds won't rotate. Have I done something wrong?

This sometimes happens if the louvres were originally hung onto the headrail whilst the hooks were in the closed position. You need to take the louvres off the headrail and then turn the chain round until the hooks are in the open position. This means that when you rehang the louvres, you'll be able to see through them and out of your window. Your louvres should now rotate without any problems.

The louvres of my Vertical blind are not in line with each other. What should I do?

This is easily rectified. Pull the control chain until the slats are in the closed position, then gently force the chain and they will realign. You may need to try doing this both ways. Don't worry if you hear a noise, that's perfectly normal.

What type of blinds would be best for my bathroom?

Bathrooms tend to be steamy, so it's best to choose a blind that can cope with these conditions. 
 Venetians are good, although you may find that blinds from our wood Venetians range will warp. 
Blackout Roller blinds would be required in this environment. 
Vertical blinds fabric that is moisture proof is ideally suited to this environment.

What do I do if my blind becomes faulty?

Contact us here or call us on 01752 667252 and explain your problem. We will then arrange a suitable time to visit you and rectify the fault.

If I supply my own fabric could you make my blind for me?

Unfortunately we can’t offer this service. All of our fabrics are chosen as they are very high quality and all fabric will have had lots of tests to ensure our customers are happy with their blinds for years to come.

Do you offer roller blinds that you pull in the centre and they retract in?

No, we only offer roller blinds with a control chain; we find the spring rollers can be very temperamental.

I bought a Wooden Venetian blind a few months ago and have just ordered another but they look slightly different. Why is this?

As wood is a natural product, the look and behaviour of each of our Wooden Venetian blinds will be different to the next. The grain may vary between each slat and other features may appear, such as pin knots, tiger striping, burl figures and mineral deposit. 
These characteristics will make some slats seem darker or lighter than others. We sort each of our slat shades into three colour classifications and always ensure that an individual blind is made using slats from the same classification.

So please remember this when you order a sample as this too may vary to the finished blind you receive; your sample is only an indication. Your finished blind will always benefit from its own shade variation, which guarantees uniqueness. 
If you don't like these natural characteristics then we would recommend a wood effect Venetian blind.
