My Blinds Aren’t Working Properly, What Do I Do?

Question: I have a set of blinds that isn’t working properly. The cord to pull the blinds up is always getting stuck, and I have to climb up on a chair and pull the cord from the very top to get it to work. Can this be fixed?

Answer: If these are otherwise good quality blinds that you don’t want to replace, they can be professionally restrung. It sounds as if there is a frayed line in the blinds that needs repair. If you continue to struggle with them they may fall off the wall and injure you, or the blinds will break to the point where they are beyond fixing. Your best bet is getting the blinds restrung, or replacing them.
