Wiper Tips: Keeping your Windshield Clean
– Clean rubber element every time you fill your gas tank. Remove loose dirt and road grime from the windshield.
– When hand washing your car, use a small amount of non-abrasive glass cleaner on a wet sponge to clean both the windshield and the rubber wiping elements.
– Always use an ice scraper to remove snow and ice. Using your wipers to de-ice your windshield can damage the blade as well as the entire arm and wiper motor.
90% of all Driving Decisions are Based on Visual Cues
The American Optometric Association reports that 90% of all driving decisions are based solely on visual cues. That means having the best windshield wipers is essential for safe driving vision. Here at Delta Tire and Lube Guam, we ensure each product performs better, lasts longer, installs easier and fits more vehicles than any other wiper manufacturer.
Chips and Cracks
Never let a chip or crack go unfixed. What looks like a small nick can lead to the entire windshield breaking, which can not only be more expensive to fix, but extremely dangerous if you’re driving when it shatters. Damaged glass can also cut the rubber wiping element of your wiper blades, causing streaking and poor visibility. Fixing chips and cracks immediately is fast and easy and usually covered by your car insurance.
Make sure all your lights – headlights, brake lights and signals – are working properly. Doing this on a weekly basis ensures that you’ll have the best driving visibility at night, and will keep you from getting an expensive ticket.
Signs that you Need New Windshield Wipers
How do you know your wipers need to be replaced? Deteriorated wipers produce an uneven wipe, which prevents proper contact with the windshield surface. This will create unwiped or streaky areas, severely impairing your driving vision.
If any of the conditions below describe your wipers, replace them today at one of our Delta Tire and Lube Guam locations.
Caused by dry rubber that has hardened and cracked. Streaking can also be caused by tree sap, road tar and other foreign substances on the blade rubber.
The chattering sound the blade makes as it passes across the windshield is caused by the “permanent set” or “curve” in the rubber that some wiper blades develop while they are not being used.
General rounding of the wiping edge caused by age is a sign it’s time to replace your windshield wiper blades.
A condition found on blades that are old, or may be due to the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays on the rubber.
Bent Refill or Wiper Frame
Ice scrapers, automatic car washes or vandalism can bend the wiper refill or wiper frame.

The automobile’s windshield needs distinguished service to remain in the matchless order. Healthy windshield represents superior visibility. And since the good visibility is the key to risk-free driving, hence, you should not take your vehicle’s windshield maintenance for granted. Also, it plays a crucial role in the poor weather conditions. That is the reason why I genuinely agree with the author and would like to suggest that every vehicle parent should never ignore the undertaking of windshield aftercare, rather it should be part of their maintenance schedule to ensure that their speed machine’s windshield is truly cared for them. Some vehicle owners don’t understand the significance of regular car service. Thus, it can be difficult for them to maintain their vehicle’s windshield in the good order. So, I would request them, they should go through this page- http://www.munichwest.com/2017/07/05/the-importance-of-regular-automotive-services-for-your-european-car/ so that they can understand how regular auto servicing worth it and realize their negligence towards their visibility maintenance.

Damaged wiper blades unable to provide better visibility during the hazardous environmental situations to the driver, hence could cause an accident. So, the condition of the wiper blades needs to be evaluated at a regular interval and if necessary should be replaced with suitable alternatives in order to get better visibility during the hazardous condition. Apart from this, different components used in the vehicle needs to be inspected at a regular interval and abnormal components should be repaired or replaced by certified technicians.

Windshield wipers has an important role to play during extreme environmental condition. It provides clear visibility during hazardous environmental condition and prevents any kind of accident due to low visibility during such time period. However, damaged or older wipers are unable to provide better visibility and should be replaced with suitable substitutes to prevent any kind of accident for improper visibility. However, one should contact with professional automotive technicians to get better guidance. You can visit: http://techplusautomotive.com/services/
