Keep your verticals moving smoothly with silicone spray!

Are your vertical blinds becoming increasingly difficult to slide?

When it comes to the smooth operation of vertical blinds, maintenance is key. Just like any well-oiled machine, your blinds need regular care to keep them functioning properly. And the secret to that lies in one simple routine – lubrication. But not just any lubricant – let’s talk about why a silicone-based solution is your blind’s best friend.

 

The Importance of Yearly Lubrication:

Over time, the constant use of vertical blinds can lead to wear and tear on the tracks and wands. To prevent this, we recommend a yearly lubrication regimen. This not only ensures the longevity of your blinds but also maintains the ease of their operation.

 

Choosing the Right Lubricant:

The market is awash with various lubricating products, but for vertical blinds, silicone-based lubricants are the gold standard. Why silicone, you ask? Unlike oil-based lubricants that can attract and accumulate dust, silicone-based lubricants repel dust, keeping the mechanism clean and reducing the likelihood of grime build-up.

 

Step-by-Step Lubrication Process:

  • Preparation: Start by cleaning the track and wand to remove any dust or debris. A simple wipe with a dry cloth should do the trick.
  • Application: Spray a reasonable amount of silicone-based lubricant onto the track mechanism and along the wand. Ensure you cover all moving parts but avoid over-spraying, as this can lead to a messy build-up.
  • Operation: Gently slide the blinds back and forth a few times to work the lubricant into the mechanism. This also helps to identify if any spots have been missed.

Silicone Spray – A Multipurpose Wonder:

Don’t stop at your blinds. Silicone spray works wonders on other parts of your home too! Use it on sliding windows, zip-screen tracks, and any other mechanism that faces the same issues of movement and squeaking. Remember the handy rule: “If it moves or squeaks, spray it with silicone!”
