A clear view out of your windshield is important for a safe driving experience. If a driver’s view is obstructed, they may not be able to see to accurately navigate the road. A windshield with no debris or fractures can help create a safer drive for everyone on the roadway. Here at Spieler’s Incorporated, we want to help you create a clear view for a pleasant and safe travel.
Repair Windshield Crack or Chip
If a car owner gets a chip repaired soon after it occurs, the entire windshield may not need to be replaced. Often when a chip or crack is smaller than six inches, has not spread further, and is not in your line of vision, it can be repaired. Filling in a chip or crack can be less costly than a windshield replacement. A cracked or chipped windshield is weaker than an un-fractured one. If you are involved in an accident with a damaged windshield, it may not properly protect the vehicle occupants. A clear view of the road is important for a safe driving experience.
Fill Wiper Fluid
Windshield wiper fluid is used to help clear off the windshield if debris is obstructing the driver’s vision. The fluid squirts out at the windshield, where the wipers help clear off particles that may be in the way. Ensure your windshield wiper fluid is full on a monthly basis to help avoid running out. A driver wants to avoid running low on fluid in the tank so they do not find themselves in a situation in which they need fluid, and it is dry. Filling up wiper fluid is one of the easiest maintenance procedures; simply locate your wiper fluid tank, remove the cap, and fill to the full line.
Wiper blades on a vehicle wear out over time. It is suggested that vehicle blades be changed out every six months, typically in the spring and fall months. The salt and ice in the winter months can be hard on the rubber of the windshield wiper blades, causing them to wear quickly. Like the winter, the summer is hard on the blades as well; the heat can cause the rubber to dry out and crack, leaving it weak and damaged. If a driver notices the windshield wiper blades are damaged before they usually change them out, they should be replaced right away. Well maintained blades help the wipers clean off the windshield for a clear view.
