Windshields need to be impeccably clean to provide you with an unobstructed view of the road; wiper blades play an important role in doing so. Wiper blades are in the forefront for defense against many elements such as the sun, vehicle waxes and oils, salt, moisture airborne debris, and extreme temperatures. Such elements can have severe effects on the wiper blades that can affect the windshield. As a result, wiper blades tend to squeak, chatter, skip, smear or streak, thus reducing driving visibility.


Damaged wiper blades can cause more harm than just streaks on your car windshield. There can be deep scratches on windshield due to torn wiper blades or wipers missing the rubber blade. Many wiper blades used today have thin metal strips that make contact with the windshield and cause scratches as well. Damaged wiper blades can also channel water past wiper blades and can cause premature wear of new wiper blades.

You can notice if the wiper blades have worn out by observing the following:

  • If they leave streaks or miss sections of your windshield
  • Lift-off due to deterioration in the wiper arm
  • Edges causes excessive squeaking which gives rise to worn blades

Although drivers depend on their vehicles’ wiper blades to clear away rain, sleet and snow, they wait to replace them until they need it the most.  Wiper blades should be replaced every six months to maximize visibility, efficiency and reliability.
