We’ve all been there.

How many times has the following happened to you? You attempt to close or open the Venetian blinds and low and behold instead of the blind doing what you expect it to do, you end up holding the broken wand in your hand. And that incident can be frustrating within itself---especially it this occurrence happens at night when you want to close the blinds for privacy.

Blinds are a big part of the décor in your home or office. There are so many different types and looks to choose from. Blinds should not be confused with a shade. There are certain things that a blind does differently from a shade. For instance, a shade will only raise and lower, while blinds will go up and down and from side to side. Blinds can also be opened and closed without being raised or lowered.

If you should ever need a replacement wand for blinds it is important to know what kind of quality or type of wand that is needed for a suitable replacement. Replacement wands come in a wide variety of materials. For instance, they can be manufactured from wood, plastic, and or faux wood to name a few.

However, when you do decide to buy a replacement wand for blinds you may decide to replace the manufacturer’s wand with a wand that will turn your manual blinds into motorized blinds. And the nice part about this concept is that the batteries store right inside the wand. Most wands will operate on lithium batteries, which is the same type of batteries that you can buy for some watches and your mobile phone.

This type of battery has a long lifespan and does not need to be replaced often. This battery is also known to be heat resistant and can withstand high temperatures without melting inside the wand’s battery compartment.

Whenever your shade begins to operate slowly when being controlled by the remote wand--- that will be a signal that you will need to change the batteries. If you desire to kick it up a notch get the kit that allows you to control the operation of your blinds from your cell phone. However, if cell phone remote operation is the route you choose to go, be prepared to put out a couple of hundred dollars for this type of luxury and convenience.

Because blinds are such an important part of window dressing, it is important that they are properly cared for. Proper care will extend the life of the blinds and save homeowners and businesses alike a small fortune by not having to replace them often. Venetian blinds are the most popular coverage that homeowners and businesses have. If they are not properly cleaned, they can lose their luster and will end up becoming a dust magnet.

It’s best to do regular dusting on Venetian blinds to keep them from becoming dirty. They can be the most time consuming blinds to clean because they are constructed from so many metal slats. And the dirt on these slats has been known to build up very quickly.

They also require a gentle motion when cleaning because the metal can be very easily bent out of shape. Some homeowners find it easier to soak them in a cleaning solution in the bathtub. And afterward they will lay them flat in the open air so they can dry naturally.

So, if you are looking to replace your current wand because it has fallen off, or because you wish to be able to remotely control your blinds---then it should not be hard for you to locate a dealer that will help you find the right type of wand for your needs.
