Anyone who has driven around New Jersey in the rain, the sleet, the snow and even the pollen knows how important it is to be able to keep the windshield clear. Water can distort the driver’s vision, creating a risk of an accident or failing to see pedestrians, bike riders or motorcyclists on the road. The same is true for salt, dust, dirt, and other grime that can accumulate on the windshield during driving and obscure the view.
One of the most common reasons for poor visibility in wet and snowy conditions is poor quality windshield wipers. With use, they can become ragged and damaged, limiting their effectiveness in clearing the windshield. Windshield wiper blades are wear and tear items, eventually they all wear out and need to be replaced.
It can be easy to forget about a problem with the wiper blades once you park the car and the sun comes out. For this reason, it is important to schedule windshield wiper blade replacement as soon as the problem is evident.
If you have completely worn out wiper blades, you may forget and drive the vehicle again and have to use the wipers –then the metal or plastic of the blade may scrape and scratch the window, leading to more costly repair.
With companies offering mobile service, it is easy to schedule windshield wiper blade replacement right at the home or office. These mobile repair technicians can arrive at your location on a schedule you select. They can complete the wiper replacement and even provide an oil change or other preventive car maintenance as needed.
This is an ideal way to keep your vehicle in top driving condition. The added safety of new wiper blades will always ensure you have a clear view of the road ahead of you. Don’t forget, for many SUVs, wagons, and vans there is also single wiper on the back, which will need to be changed with wear as well.
