Looking after your windscreen
Your car's windscreen is an essential safety feature that protects you and your passengers from the elements while you're on the road. To ensure it stays in good condition, it's important to take proper care of it.
Here are some tips on how to look after your windscreen:
Keep it clean
Dirt and grime can scratch the surface of your windscreen, so it's important to keep it clean. Use a gentle cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth to wipe away dirt and debris. Avoid using abrasive cleaning products or materials, as these can damage the surface of your windscreen. Rain repellents are also useful to improve visibility and keep your windscreen clean.
Check for chips and cracks
Small chips and cracks in your windscreen can quickly turn into bigger problems if left untreated. Check your windscreen regularly for any damage, and have it repaired as soon as possible to prevent further deterioration.
Be mindful of temperature changes
Rapid temperature changes can cause your windscreen to expand and contract, which can lead to chips and cracks. To prevent this, avoid parking your car in direct sunlight on hot days, and try to avoid drastic temperature changes by not turning your air conditioning on high right away. If the weather is below freezing and your windscreen is frozen over then why not check out our article on the best ways to defrost your car windscreen?
Keep your wiper blades in good condition
Wiper blades that are worn or damaged can scratch your windscreen and leave streaks. Check your wiper blades regularly and replace them when they start to show signs of wear.
Visibility is obviously vitally important when driving. If your windscreen is dirty or smeared in any way, then this will reduce your visibility and consequently this will reduce your overall safety levels. To improve your overall visibility, you should book a windscreen treatment at your local National branch.
