Check for Mounting Brackets- For inside mounted blinds, carefully check the top of the window frame for the presence of mounting brackets. If you are dealing with outside mount blinds, then check for the wall or above the window frame for the brackets.


Removal of Roller Blinds- Using a screwdriver, remove the small screws or tabs on each bracket used to secure the roller blinds in place. Now, press the tabs or unscrew them to release the blind from the brackets. Once the blinds are released, make them lower down and take them out of the window frame.


For Outside Mount- Based on brackets used to attach blinds, you can unscrew them or unclip them from the ceiling or wall. Slowly and gently detach the brackets from the surface and step ahead in the removal process. After removing the brackets, slide the blind out of the brackets or roll them carefully.


Start with the Cleaning Process- If you want to replace blinds, then time to store them safely and clean the area to make it ready for another blind installation. It avoids any damage as well. When preferring cleaning of blinds, then use the proper cleaning techniques according to the specific roller blind material. Ensure you have followed cleaning instructions properly before reinstallation of blinds.

Store them in separate small bags or containers to avoid misplacing them. Removal of roller blinds is a simple process especially when you are doing that step after step.
