It’s said that 90% of our driving decisions are based on visual information. Our wiper blades play an important role in this. Most Denver, Englewood and Littleton drivers know that a dirty or streaked windshield can catch the glare of the sun or on-coming headlights and make it nearly impossible for us to see.
Most busy car owners deal with their wiper blades from a failure perspective. They address them only when they no longer function. Instead, Denver drivers should think about wiper blades as an important safety system that they should maintain, rather than repair.
And let’s not get the wrong idea and think that your wiper blades will last longer because you don’t use them very often. Remember, they live outside in the harsh sun, freezing cold, as well as ice and wind. They will just dry out and crack over time because of these conditions.
At Express Car Care in Denver, we recommend that motorists change their wiper blades twice a year, in the spring and the fall. That way you have functional blades for those spring showers and Colorado winter storms. You should also consider a windshield treatment to help repel water and make it easier to clean off bugs and road grime.
Like everything else in the automotive world, there have been some big advancements in wiper blades, both in terms of the design and the materials from which the blade is made. We can help you get the same type of blades that came with your vehicle, or if you have a need for better than average windshield wipers, you can pay some more for an upgraded wiper.
And if you live where there is a lot of snow and ice, they make special winter blades that don’t clog up and freeze like standard blades.
