Are Your Wiper Blades Worn Out DFW?

Chevrolet DFWAfter a long, hot and dry summer, the DFW finally saw some rain this week! The other day, a friend of mine asked me about wiper blades and how you knew when it was time to replace them. He said he had replaced them at the beginning of the year, but they were streaking and skipping when he used them this week. Did any of your DFW Chevy drivers experience the same thing?¬† I’m willing to bet a lot of you did.

When blades aren’t used for prolonged periods of time, they can begin to deteriorate. The sun’s UV rays also contribute to this, and the ridiculous temperatures we’ve had all summer probably made it worse. Generally, you want to replace your blades once¬† year. But given the weather we’ve had the past few months, I’d recommend taking a walk outside and examining your blades. Look for broken frames, tears, missing pieces and curvature.

If you see any of these things, you may want to replace the blades. If you’re not sure how to do this, you can always swing by and we’ll help you out. In the future, there are a few things you can do to help prolong your blades life. First of all, try and clean your windshield as much as possible. Try cleaning it every time you stop for gas. This will help keep the oil from other cars and random dirt flying in the air from damaging your blades. The second thing you can do is wipe off your blades with a damp paper towel. Try doing this once a month and I guarantee you’ll see a difference.
