Looking Down The Road In North Charleston: Wiper BladesJan 10th, 2017
It's said that 90 percent of our driving decisions are based on visual information. Our wiper blades play an important role in this. Most Charleston, North Charleston, and Charleston drivers know that a dirty or streaked windshield can catch the glare of the sun or on-coming headlights and make it nearly impossible to see.
Most busy Charleston car owners deal with their wiper blades from a failure perspective. They address them when they no longer function. Instead, Charleston drivers should think about wipers blades as an important safety system that they should maintain rather than repair.
And don't think that your wiper blades will last longer because you don't use them very often. Hey, they live outside in the harsh sun and freezing cold – ice and wind. They just dry out and crack over time.
At Charleston Auto Repair, we recommend that Charleston motorists change their wiper blades twice a year, in the spring and fall. That way you have functional blades for those spring showers and SC winter storms. And consider a windshield treatment to help repeal water and make it easier to clean off bugs and road grime.
Like everything else in the SC automotive world, there've 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 Charleston 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's a lot of snow and ice in SC, they make special winter blades that don't clog up and freeze like standard blades.
