Benefits of Windshield Wiper Replacement

Like many drivers, you probably only ever think of the windshield wipers when you have to use them. Since you don't use the wipers every day, it's easy to neglect their maintenance and care. However, making sure the wipers work when you need them is essential. The windshield wipers clear off rain, snow, ice, and other particles that otherwise stick to the windshield and can affect visibility. If you can't see out the windshield, you're more likely to be involved in a crash. If they're working as designed, the wipers also protect your windshield from damage. The wipers have a protective rubber layer that acts as a barrier between the glass of the windshield and the wiper blades. If that rubber layer wears too thin, the metal blade can scratch and damage the car's windshield, which can cause the windshield to become weak and shatter if the small cracks get worse. Changing the wipers as needed can help avoid the costs of windshield replacement and bills associated with an accident, which are both far more expensive.

How Often Should I Replace My Windshield Wipers?

To determine when to change the windshield wipers on your vehicle, you can follow a schedule based on time or replace the blades when necessary based on their condition. Generally, the more frequently that you use the windshield wipers, the more often they need to be changed. If you don't drive in snow or rain often, you might be able to change the blades once every 12 months. However, if you drive in snowy winters or rainy spring weather, you might need to change the wipers twice each year or more. The wipers may be due for replacement if you notice smudges on the windshield or if the blades appear to have bumps or uneven edges.
