Are Windshield Wipers and Washers Important?

Posted by Mariios on March 2, 2020

Windshield is the most significant part of our automobiles. We seldom pay importance to the wipers and washers we use. Whenever we face harsh weather we realize how important these elements are.

History of Windshields

The first windshield wipers were invented in 1903. In 1916, wipers became standard equipment in most vehicles. In 1917, the first windshield wiper powered by an electric motor was introduced. During the mid-thirties, the glass washer system, that sprays window washer fluid at your windshield, was introduced. In the late forties, the first combination of windshield wiper and washer system was put to practice. Systems these days are designed to be user-friendly, and extremely effective, and ones that help maintain clear vision while driving. For modern windshield wiper and washer system repairs or replacements, trust Blue Diamond Auto Glass.

Why Windshield Wipers are Important? 

  • Many times we turn on our wipers and discover that part of the rubber portion on the blade is peeling away.
  • This incident is followed by a horrible screeching sound as the damaged parts drag across the glass.
  • The sound means you may be permanently scratching your glass. Fix hairline crack as soon as you notice them to prevent them from spreading and causing more damage to your windshield.
  • Regular maintenance of your wiper blades is essential to the life of your windshield.
  • Wiper blades can be cleaned with a wet towel swiped along the edge of the rubber blade to remove dust and debris that build up over time.
  • Inspect your blades for areas that look hardened, torn, and cracked.
  • Check the washer fluid level and add fluid if needed.
  • It is important to maintain the appropriate mixture of antifreeze and washer fluid suitable for the climate.
  • Never use plain water in your washer system. It may freeze in cold weather, or develop bacteria in summer.
  • Inspect the washer system spray nozzles to ensure they spray evenly across the glass and provide necessary coverage.
  • Visibility is essential for safe driving. Make sure you are prepared for rain or snow storms in advance.
