The importance of wipers can only be understood when they stop cleaning the glass normally. How unpleasant it is to hear this grinding and look at the world through streaks of divorce. Wiper blades are consumables that require regular replacement. The interval between replacements directly depends on how the car owner uses the cleaners. How to increase this interval - read on.
1. Dry glass
Laziness is the cause of many problems. One of these can be the rapid wear of the wiper blades. Dried dirt and streaks are best wiped off with a damp cloth. And even with it it can be difficult to scrub glass. If you regularly do this with the help of wipers, their lifespan will be significantly reduced.
2. Frozen wipers
Tearing off frozen wipers on a frosty morning will almost certainly damage them. This should be done as carefully as possible, and it is best to pour over them with warm water, not boiling water, before the procedure itself. If you pour boiling water over, the windshield may burst due to the temperature rise.
Note: If the wipers are not frozen and the glass is covered with ice, then you should not turn them on. Ice can severely damage the brushes.
3. Works of a wide profile
And again about laziness. The task of the wipers is to remove moisture from the glass. Use a scraper or rag to remove other contaminants such as ice, leaves or bird droppings. Otherwise, the brushes won't last long.
4. Crack in the glass
Cracks in the windshield are a common occurrence on our roads. One small crack in the resting area of the wipers, and now the third set makes the same stains as the previous one. This is because the sharp edge of the crack scratches the brush and very quickly renders it unusable.
5. We clean the plaque
The wiper blades are designed to clean your windshield, but they also need to be cleaned from time to time. Dirt collects there, the brushes become tanned and begin to wear out a lot. Therefore, in the rainy season, they should be regularly wiped with a rag, moistening it with water or "anti-freeze".
