Wiper Blade Check And Replacement
While driving, 90% of your decisions are based on having a clear line of sight and wiper blades play an important role this. Still, the fact of the matter is that most car owners neglect to get their windshield wipers changed.
Unknown to you, even the best wiper blades take a beating day in and day out. Airborne contaminants, grime from the road, dust, sunlight, soil, weather conditions, bug juice, heavy use, and wear and tear can affect the wiper’s ability to do its work efficiently. Make no mistake, worn wiper blades are dangerous. They must be replaced at the first signs of streaking, chattering, cracking, nicking, or tearing. In case the windshield wipers get overused without proper care and replacement, the blade will shred and break off from the wiper arm, which also inflicts significant damage upon the windshield glass. Moreover, it’s best to make the windshield surface completely wet with the wiper fluid before running the wipers, as wiping a dry windshield causes harm to the wiper blade. Furthermore, if the wiper blades are in excellent condition but aren’t used over time, they become worthless. Therefore, it is recommended to change the wiper blades during regular maintenance of your vehicle, that is, every six months to a year.
