How Often You Should Replace Windshield Wipers

Benefits of Replacing the Windshield Wipers

Understanding the benefits of replacing your windshield wipers can prompt you to schedule this type of maintenance more frequently. When you install new wipers, it helps protect your windshield from potential damage that can occur when old wipers have worn or damaged materials. If the metal arms come in contact with the windshield, it can lead to a lot of damage to the glass as they’re in motion.

New wipers also boost your visibility by keeping the windshield clear in poor weather conditions. Approximately 46 percent of accidents are caused during rainfall, making it necessary always to change out the wipers to reduce your risk of accidents.

Another benefit is that this type of maintenance is relatively inexpensive and isn’t a major cost when it comes to maintaining your vehicle throughout the year.

How Often Should I Replace My Windshield Wipers?

Your windshield wipers should be replaced every six to 12 months. The rubber material can disintegrate during this time, making it necessary to avoid waiting any longer to replace the parts.

Several signs hint that the wipers need to be replaced, which includes if your current wipers cause streaks to form. The wiper edge may also become dull, which causes moisture to smear and blur your view.

Another sign you need new windshield wipers is if the blades tend to vibrate or skip across the windshield as move back and forth.
