Visibility is fundamental to safe driving so here are a few tips to help you see clearly in all road conditions and protect your windshield from damage.

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. - eTradeWire -- One accessory on your vehicle that often gets overlooked when doing routine maintenance is your windshield wipers. Visibility is fundamental to safe driving so here are a few tips to help you see clearly in all road conditions and protect your windshield from damage.

Environmental elements such as sun: Ultraviolet light and ozone deterioration; Airborne debris: Sand, mud and dust carried in the wind; Moisture: Acid rain and salt water all contribute to weakening the wipers ability to keep your windshield clean and clear. All that road dirt acts like an abrasive to wear away the flat surface on a wiper blade.

If you live where there is a change of season, harsh winter weather can cause the rubber on your wipers to become brittle and worn. Adversely, hot Summer weather can warp the rubber, causing it to lessen the squeegee effect against the windshield glass.

Some common wiper problems you may experience:          * Streaking occurs when the rubber squeegee dries, hardens and cracks. It can also be caused by tree sap, road tar and other foreign substances collected on either the glass or the blade.       * Skipping occurs when the blade develops a curvature from lack of use (e.g. left in the 'parked position' for an extended length of time).
* Wearing occurs with extensive use and is when the rubber edges are rounded instead of squared.

Waiting long periods of time to change wipers gives the blade rubber time to deteriorate. As blades age, they lose their flexibility and are less able to wipe cleanly. Cracks leading to costly major repairs can be prevented by regularly maintaining your windshield wipers. https://www.autoglassnj.com
