How Long Do Windshield Wipers Last?

Proper visibility is extremely important when it comes to driving safely. There’s nothing that goes more hand in hand with that than having clean windshield wiper blades. The truth is you don’t want to be caught in a major storm with poor-performing wiper blades. Read on to learn more about how you can perfect windshield wiper maintenance.

 

It is an industry-standard to replace your windshield wiper blades every 6-12 months. The sun’s UV rays, pollution, debris, and other natural conditions can cause them to wear sooner. When your wiper blades wear down, you may notice the following signs:

  • Cracks or tears in the rubber 
  • Skipping 
  • Squealing and squeaking
  • Streaky appearance

If you notice any of the above changes in your windshield wipers, it is a clear indicator that you need new ones.

 

You may think all windshield wiper blades are universal; however, that is not the case. They come in different sizes, features, and types. Even after picking them out at the auto parts store, you may or may not know how to install them properly. The process can be a bit overwhelming. If you need assistance changing your windshield wipers, please do not hesitate to come by City Garage.

 

Driving with bad wiper blades can put you at risk of an accident, so please do not procrastinate on replacing your windshield wipers. For quality windshield wiper replacements and other reliable auto services, please give us a call or visit soon!
