Maintenance Guide for Windshields

Posted by Mariios on February 11, 2020

Repair and replacement of windshields can cost more than just buying proper maintenance and cleaning kit. As they say, caution is better than cure. If you follow simple tips of keeping your windshield clean and up to date then it will last long and turn out to be more cost-effective. It is important to get your windshield from a reputable service provider but it won’t be enough no matter which glass or provider you choose, if you don’t take care of it. Go through this simple maintenance check list to maintain the shape of your windshield and save up on repair jobs.

Tips for the Maintenance of Windshield

Avoid extreme temperatures

Either sudden cold from hot or sudden hot from cold can cause the glass to contract or expand. Limit the damage to your windshields by checking the temperature before car washes and other extreme activities which may expose your vehicle to these sudden changes. When considering windshield replacement, be sure to use a professional service to ensure proper installation and seal. This can prevent issues like leaks and improper fitment, which could lead to further damage down the road.

Pay attention to your wipers

Most people don’t care about such little things but the fact is that these little things cause far more serious damages in the long run that you may notice at first glance. We recommend changing your wiper blades four times a year, at least!

Avoid scrappers for snow or ice gathered on your windshield

It may take longer but try using deicing spray with your vehicle’s defroster whenever possible. And we cannot stress this enough! Keep it clean! Any kind of dirt or scraps left on the windshield only take longer to remove and leave deeper marks. Clean as soon as you spot any dirt on the screen. For deeper marks or damage, consider professional windshield repair services. They have the tools and expertise to handle chips and cracks, preventing them from spreading and compromising the integrity of the windshield.


In conclusion, ensuring proper maintenance of your windshield is essential for both safety and longevity. By following these tips diligently, such as regularly cleaning, inspecting for damage, and promptly addressing any issues, you can prolong the life of your windshield and ensure clear visibility while driving. Remember that a well-maintained windshield not only enhances your driving experience but also contributes significantly to your safety on the road. If you do encounter damage, consider professional Auto glass repair services to ensure the safety and integrity of your vehicle’s windshield.
