Reasons to keep your car’s windshield clean

June 16, 2017

A clean and good-looking vehicle is the top priority of many owners. Keeping the car clean is as important as ensuring the safety of the passengers inside the car and people on the road. One must be aware of the different changes in the vehicle such as smell, look, noise, etc.

A windshield is one such major aspect of a vehicle. For instance, a crack or chipped windshield will not only look bad but also challenge the safety concerns. To ensure that a vehicle is good to drive and offers a clear view of the road, it is imperative to keep the windshield clean.

Here are some reasons and ways to keep your car’s windshield clean:

  1. A windshield is the car’s protecting agent: A windshield prevents external elements such as dirt and debris on the road from entering the car. If the windshield is not properly placed, outside debris, rocks, trash and other unwanted elements can easily enter the vehicle and hurt the passengers. Just as the immune system of our body prevents foreign agents from causing harm, in a similar manner, car’s windshield protects the car as well as the passengers. That’s why it is imperative to have a well-fitted windshield. To keep the windshield clean, use glass cleaning shampoo which soaks the dirt and keeps the windshield dirt free.
  1. Clear visibility is important for safety: Good visibility is essential while driving on the road. Whether it is during the day or night, having a clear view while driving is very important. Clear visibility is not just restricted to cleaning the windshield but also checking for small cracks that might be a hindrance during the journey. If you come across small cracks on your windshield, it is better to get it replaced, as it is rightly said prevention is better than cure.
  1. Clean windshield helps the wiper blades work well in bad weather: Wiper blades are installed on the exterior of the car. Therefore, they are always exposed to harmful UV rays which reduce their lifespan. A dirty or scratched windshield also affects the working of the wiper blades. Especially, during heavy monsoons, a clean windshield is advisable for a smooth functioning of the wiper blades. Hence, always make sure that the car’s windshield is always clean and in good condition for the wiper blades to work properly and last longer.
  1. A clean windshield for longer lifespan: Whether it is sunny, windy or rainy, a clean windshield will always come in handy. It is very important to clean the windshield regularly, as a dirty one might be damaged due to small cracks or chips. These cracks can also spread into bigger ones during usual days. Using a quality micro-fiber cloth and good cleaning lotion will increase the longevity of the windshield. A clean car also adds to the personality of the person who owns it.

Dry car wash v/s automated car wash

May 26, 2017

Car detailing service focuses on cleaning and reconditioning of the interior as well as the exterior of the car. It is very important to regularly get the car cleaned by experts who are well versed with the step-by-step process of restoring and protecting a vehicle. The grime and dust that a car picks up can damage the body when left unattended. The dust particles get stuck to different parts of the car, which can lead to rusting of the car parts. Therefore, car detailing is a must. It protects the overall health of the car, starting from maintaining a beautiful and brand-new exterior to a top-notch interior condition.

There are different ways in which a car is washed in service centres. Therefore, one must be well aware of the difference procedures, equipment and eco-friendly products used during the processes. The two different types of car detailing services that one can choose from are automated and dry car wash method. This article will talk about the two methods, their advantages and disadvantages.

Dry car wash:

A waterless car wash uses various types of highly lubricated sprays to remove dirt and road grime. It is a faster way to clean the car. This type of car detailing includes interior and exterior cleaning as well. The key to working safely with a waterless car wash is to use plenty of clean micro fibre polishing towels. These towels help to wipe the car without causing any damage to it. It is also important to use a lubricant that is designed for that particular part, as there are different lubricants available for different parts of the vehicle. The lubricants used during this process do not mix with the soil and harm it in any way. They also protect your car from rusting.

Automated car wash:

In this type of detailing service, the exterior and the interior of the car is washed mechanically or manually, or by a combination of both. It starts with cleaning the car with different chemicals through different arches. The usage of chemicals depends on the seasonal dirt. Then, the car is left to pre-soak so that it gets rid of the dirt. The next step includes cleaning the dirt. The procedure to clean the dirt varies according to the service centre. Some prefer doing it manually, while some follow the mechanical approach.

Why to opt for dry car wash:

The dry car wash is an environment-friendly car detailing service that does not harm soil and saves gallons of water, unlike the automated process that uses chemicals that contains a high amount of acids, which are harmful to water and soil. The automated car wash process requires almost 9-15 gallons of water. We recommend that you opt for dry car was as you with this you can do your bit towards protecting the environment.

Windshield Experts provide customized dry car wash service that focuses on different aspects of car detailing. We use 3M products for best results. 3M offers a wide range of products specific to the user and vehicle friendly. Their products are the best that science can offer.

Tips for a safe and cool long drive during summers

May 17, 2017

As we all know, driving during summers can be highly expensive. The on-going AC inside the car to keep the temperature cool increases fuel consumption, which directly adds to the expenditure of the car owner. But, long drives are the best during summers.  Especially long weekends to hill-stations and summer holidays in school make it mandatory to go out for long drives and spend quality time with family & friends.

So, the question remains. How can we lower the expenditure and still enjoy long drives without feeling the heat? For starters, there are various precautionary measures that one can take to prevent loss of cool from inside the car and ensure optimum use of fuel. Here are some basic steps to follow before you head out with your family & friends for a long drive.

Checking the Windshield

Windshield plays an integral part in maintaining the structure of a car body. It supports the overall car structure and also prevents any harm to passengers during unforeseen events. Ensure that you replace or repair the windshield (if required) for a safe journey. Also, the front seat passengers are more prone to sunburns and harmful effects of UV rays due to the front windshield. To prevent your family and yourself from such damage, it is recommended to switch to AIS SolarGlas windshield. This windshield offers maximum protection from the sun, keeping the interiors of the car much cooler for a longer time, eventually leading to fuel-efficiency.

Checking Battery

If you are driving a car that is aged 4 years old or more, it is advisable to check the battery terminals and cables for corrosion. Also, the high usage of AC is quite evident during the summer season. Therefore, make sure to keep a spare coolant in the car, if in case, the battery heats up too much and the car shuts down. It is recommended to the check the battery for optimum coolant level before you head out for the drive.

Checking Wipers

Wipers suffer maximum wear and tear as they are exposed to the various environmental elements. You should check your car’s wipers in summer to make sure that they are working properly and are not cracked. Cracked wipers usually leave streaks on the glass and do not clean the glass completely. It also damages the glass by leaving scratches on the windshield.

The visibility of the road ahead is an important factor for driving safe. However, while driving on dusty roads, the windshield may become murky. During such times, having a good set of wiper blades will easily clean the windshield and offer a clear view of the road.

Checking Headlights

Headlights are the most important components of a car. It offers a clear view of the road ahead at night. However, headlights suffer a great deal of distortion during the rainy season. Humidity and rain fog up the headlight, which makes it difficult for the driver to see clearly. The former season is then followed by summers, which make the plastic cover on the headlight change to a yellow colour. To get rid of such problems, it is advised to get the headlights cleaned thoroughly using only top class products. Also, make sure to take the vehicle to a renowned service center that boasts of trained technicians and excellent workmanship.

Follow these steps without fail for a safer, cooler, longer and enjoyable long drive this summer season. Be ready to drive smoothly without burning a hole in your pocket.

Importance of Solar Glass

April 25, 2017

In India, summer is the season that dominates in terms of its duration. The harsh sun is not only hard on your body and mood, but also on your automobiles. People prefer to stay either indoors or travel through air-conditioned cars. As the temperature soars high, different parts of a car like tyres, battery, oil, coolant, wiper blades are not able to perform with ease. Even the interior body gets so hot that the air conditioner fails to cool effectively.

A windshield can help keep a car cool by protecting it from harsh sunlight. As the sunlight hits the windshield, it prevents the heat from entering inside the car and helps maintain the car’s temperature. Apart from ensuring a cool interior, a windshield plays a crucial role in your safety. A solar windshield safeguards the dashboard, glasses of the windows, seat covers, and the other car interiors from the damage. A solar windshield is made up of the material that have high iron content which absorbs the UV rays and reduce the amount of heat from entering into the car.

A solar glass windshield wins over a general windshield because it:

  • Blocks the harmful rays entering the car
  • Prevents the rise of interior temperatures
  • Improves the effectiveness of the air-conditioner, hence, saving the fuel
  • Reduces CO2 emission
  • Prevents skin allergies caused due to sun exposure
  • Increases the battery’s life

Effects of weather changes on windshields

March 21, 2017

In India, throughout the year we all witness a wide range of seasonal change. The temperature shifts from high 50°C to low 2-4°C in summer and winter season respectively. Also, the Indian drivers face major challenges during the monsoon season.

At some stage, all drivers are challenged by bad weather conditions. It is due to this reason that we need to make sure that our vehicle and all of its parts are in a good condition to deal with the seasonal change.

While we take care of all the aspects of our vehicle, most of the time, we forget an important part – the car’s windshield. Undoubtedly, it is the shield which protects us from rain, wind, bugs and other debris we may encounter on the road.  No matter how durable the windshield is, every season has enough potential to create chips and cracks on it.

Here are some precautions that our experts recommend for every seasonal shift-

Summer: The uprising heat in the months of summer does not directly cause chips and cracks on the windshield, but it can cause the existing damage to spread.

Precautions-

  • Don’t blast up your AC too high as the temperature difference between the exterior and interior will have a negative impact on the windshield.
  • Also, try keeping your car away from direct sun’s heat.
  • In the case of expanded or chipping windshield, avoid slamming the door as this will put added pressure on the windshield.

Monsoon: This is the season where we witness heavy rainfall. The rain drops on the windshield reduce the visibility, while the continuous usage of windshield wipers may lead to scratches on it.

Precautions –

  • Make sure your interior glass is clean.
  • Avoid driving during hailstorms.
  • Be careful on the bumpy roads, especially if your windshield already has chips and cracks.

Winter: Due to the freezing winter temperature, your windshield may be more susceptible to expand and develop cracks, leading to further breakdown of the entire windshield.

Precautions –

  • Let the windshield warm up slowly instead of turning on the defroster too high.
  • Do not use boiling water to warm up the windshield, as a sudden change in temperature causes the windshield to expand.

Fall: The slight shift to the cooler temperature from the summer heat is a relief. But there are enough hazards that come along with this season, especially for your vehicle’s windshield.

Precautions-

  • Avoid driving in storms as falling branches, nuts, and seeds may land hard on the windshield, causing damage.
  • If there is a chip on your windshield, be proactive to get that repaired instantly.

Different ways to protect your windshield

March 6, 2017

Driving a car is a comfort we all enjoy. While driving miles every day, we encounter different types of weather conditions like strong sunshine, fierce wind, heavy rain and other unforeseen circumstances. In addition to putting our vehicle through extreme weather, we also put them through different types of roads. At times we drive by freeways with high speed, and sometimes intentionally or unintentionally, we carelessly ignore the speed breakers.

The windshield is our first safety cover that protects us from all the external objects coming our way, while on the road. It stays strong and protects the driver and passenger from extreme weather conditions and other debris. Since we cannot control the conditions and circumstances in which we may have to drive, ensuring windshield protection is a must.

Here are some tips to protect the car windshield for a drive that’s safe and secure:

  • Stay Shady – The simplest way to avoid windshield expanding and cracking is to park the vehicle in a shaded area. Direct sunlight will weaken your windshield. And if there is a crack or chip on the windshield already, there are chances of the windshield further shattering.
  • Keep your distance – It is advisable to maintain a safe distance from heavy vehicles while driving. Being aware on the road for these types of vehicles will help avoid rear-end collisions too.
  • Additional pressure – Sudden jolts and pressure to the vehicle can lead to a future windshield mishap. Also, slamming of car doors adds pressure to the minor cracks, allowing them to spread and damage the windshield completely.
  • Use Ammonia-free Cleaners – A clear windshield not only helps with a clear view but also improves the windshield life. Using glass cleaners with ammonia has the tendency to damage the tint of the windshield. Hence, opt for ammonia free cleaners.
  • Windshield wipers wear-tear – During heavy rainfall, we often keep the wipers on which causes a huge amount of friction. This can lead to the glass becoming scratched or even broken. Regular cleaning of the windshield also ensures good windshield wiper condition.

The windshield protects a vehicle from major and unnecessary harm.  Therefore, it is our prime responsibility to take care of it and ensure that it’s maintained well and necessary steps are taken to keep it damage-free.
