Wiper Blade Maintenance & Tips

When Inspecting your wiper blades:

  • Broken frame at the arms, joints or connection points.

  • Metal Corrosion at joints and claws.

  • Visible cracks, tears, and missing pieces in the wiper blades rubber edge.

  • Flex wiper blades rubber back and forth to see if the wiper blade is pliable. Aged wiper blades will have difficulty conforming to the shape of your windshield and create streaks.

  • Check the wiper blades edge for rounded edges which can prevent the wiper blade from making strong contact with the windshield and reduces wipe quality.

  • Tug to ensure wiper blade has been securely installed on the wiper arm.

       Wiper blades deteriorate causes:

  • Sun Rays

  • Oil from waxes, polishes or additives to car washes

  • Airborne debris: Sand, mud, dust, oil deposits from roads
