The Importance of Windshield Wipers
Chances are that you forget about your windshield wipers until you are traveling through a heavy rain or snowstorm. For many customers it’s not until they have a set that’s barely usable that they stop and get a replacement which can lead to a dangerous situation. We know that you have a busy schedule, so don’t let an unexpected windshield wiper replacement be a burden! Staying ahead of the game is worth the small investment now to avoid getting into an accident due to low visibility by wipers that are worn or cracked.
Checking Your Current Set
How can you tell if you need a new set? There are several visual signs to be aware of, so take a few minutes to head outside during the daylight to give your vehicle’s wiper a good inspection. One of the first signs of wear will be cracking or blistering of the rubber coating along the inside of the blade. This is especially common after the summer, since the heat of the sun can cause the rubber to melt and get damaged. Gently pull each blade away from the vehicle to inspect the full length while also looking for an cracks along the frame of the blade. Now, head inside your vehicle and turn on the wipers while activating the wiper fluid. If you see any streaks or missing sections on the windshield, it means the wipers need to be replaced.
