Windshield Repair Pros Explain How Wiper Blades Can Damage Your Glass, Cincinnati, Ohio

While you may not think about them often, the wipers on your car play a huge role in the overall safety of the vehicle. And without proper maintenance, they can cause severe damage and the need for costly windshield repair or replacement. The key to avoiding damage is frequent upkeep and understanding when it’s time to replace them.

Wiper blade damage is caused by grit and dirt trapped between the glass and worn-out wipers. When the wipers are turned on without moisture, the debris is dragged across the glass, causing nicks and scratches. To prevent the need for auto glass repair, clean your windshield regularly, making sure to lift the wipers and remove any debris lodged underneath.

windshield repair Windshield washer fluid is also helpful, but it takes a good amount of the substance to completely remove harmful grime, and it’s useless if combined with faulty windshield wipers. The fluid should be administered frequently to minimize the risk of damage and negate the need for emergency windshield repair. If the fluid spray does not easily cover the entirety of the glass surface, check the spray nozzles to see if they’re clogged. If not, you’ll need to replace the liquid right away.

All drivers should inspect their wipers regularly to ensure their parts are intact and cleaning the windshield efficiently. Check the wiper clips to make sure that they’re locked in the correct position. If they’re more than a few months old, having them replaced is cheaper than windshield repair.
