The best way to avoid needing auto glass repair in the Modesto area is to keep it clean.
Some of the good news from the past week came from the Department of Transportation, which began the first phase of the Ferguson Project. The plan is designed to reopen and permanently restore a section on State Route 140 that was damaged during the 2006 rock slide thus providing a direct route to enter Yosemite. “The first phase, which consists of removing113,000 tons of loose material, will start immediately and is expected to continue until September,” according to the Sun-Star.
That’s really welcome news. But you know what “removal of loose material” and “road construction” mean. That’s right. Dust. Dirt. Grit. Gravel. Windshield dings. Windshield repair.
Well, not always. You can get lucky and never have a windshield ding but still end up with a scratched windshield caused in part by the dust, dirt and grit of the road. That’s especially likely if you don’t keep your windshield clean and care for your wipers.
“It is a sad fact that wiper blades cause a lot of auto glass damage,” says Glass Logic, a Dallas, Texas-based company.
In some cases, the damage is so severe that you have to replace the windshield. But you can prevent the damage. The best way is to keep your windshield clean and make sure you have enough water or washer fluid when you do clean it so a gritty mess doesn’t get smeared across it when the wipers start.
But sometimes you just can’t avoid damage whether it's scratches, cracks, dings, or a totally smashed windshield. And that’s when you should call Don’s Mobile Glass.
