Old, damaged or worn wiper blades can scratch your windshield and have you hunting for a windshield repair shop.
You were headed back home from the Graffiti Festival parade last night when it happened. You cut on the windshield washers to clear off the road grit. There was a scraping noise. And, suddenly, you have a scratched windshield. You’re not sure why it happened.
If your windshield wipers are new or well-maintained, it could have been the road grit getting scraped across the glass. If you haven’t been really good about keeping your wiper blades clean or if they’re old or have come unhooked, they could be the problem. One bit of car maintenance that many car owners don’t think about is making sure their wiper blades are in good condition. That’s especially true if there’s not a lot of rain because you simply don’t use them much and tend to forget about them. But, failing to maintain them regularly can result in smearing, failure to clear water, or scrapes and scratches.
“The recommended wiper replacement schedule is once a year,” says the artofmanliness.com. “Even if you don’t use your blades all that often, it’s still a good idea to replace them at this frequency. The hot sun beating down on an unused wiper blade can cause just as much damage as regular use in the rain.”
That’s good advice for the future. But now you have a scrape to deal with. And the easiest way to do that is to call Don’s Mobile Glass.
