If it’s been awhile since you changed your windshield wiper blades, you should get them checked by the New Orleans auto care pros at Twin Tire.
New Orleans is in the rainy season. The forecast is calling for more rain over the next five days. Now’s a good time to check your windshield wiper blades to make sure they’re in good shape so you can see where you’re going when the rain is coming down. That’s especially true if you haven’t changed your wiper blades since last summer, or even before then.
“The snow, ice, rain and sun can cause the rubber compound on the blade to split and crack over time, creating reduced visibility when you use your wipers in inclement weather,” Angie’s List says. “Auto mechanics say periodically changing out your old blades for new ones allows the windshield wiper to effectively remove debris, rain and snow, therefore increasing your safety when you drive.”
How do you know when to change your wiper blades?
Well, if they smear instead of clear rain, dust and debris when you use them, that’s an indication they need changing. So is hearing a scraping sound when your turn them on.
