Tips To Maintain Your Wiper Blades

Defrost & Scrape Ice Before Using the Wipers

Using your wiper blades on an icy windshield will cause great wear and tear on your wiper blade's rubber, which will reduce their effectiveness. Begin defrosting your windshield using the heat from the vents and scrape the ice off before attempting to use the windshield wipers.

Replace The Wiper Blades At Least Twice A Year

It would be best if you were to regularly replace your wiper blades, giving you maximum visibility through various weather conditions. You should replace your wiper blades after the winter season and consider getting a fresh pair six months after that to ensure you have good working wiper blades year-round.

Keep The Windshield Clean

Regularly clean your windshield to remove any dust or contaminants that could reduce the lifespan of your wiper blades.

Check The Rubber

Regularly inspect the rubber portion of the wiper blades to know if it has any tears that could cause issues when cleaning the windshield during rainy weather.

Refill The Fluid

Always have windshield wiper fluid topped off to assist the wiper blades in cleaning the windshield without the added stress of dry rubbing on the windshield glass.

Never Run The Wipers On A Dry Windshield

Never run the windshield wipers on a dry windshield since that could damage the rubber of the blades prematurely.
