Seeing Clearly This WinterRead More
We already know about the basics of winter safety such as winter tires and winter wipers, but what about windshield safety? This one is often overlooked because it’s not something you replace seasonally, you replace it as needed. But if an issue arises, it’s important to know when it needs to be replaced as well as general care tips for the winter months.
Picture this, you’re driving along the snowy roads when suddenly a tractor trailer in front of you kicks up a large rock-like substance, and wham! An immediate crack forms in your windshield. With a common situation like this it’s often resolved with a simple phone call to your insurance company. But, it can be difficult to schedule an appointment, and if the crack is right in your line of vision you do not want to be driving.
Check out these winter windshield care tips to help avoid a crack in your windshield this winter. And even if it does occur, read what not to do to avoid worsening the crack:
- Remove all snow and ice from the front and back windshield before leaving the house to ensure full visibility, and double check to make sure there are no existing cracks already.
- Leave your windshield wipers out and up when you park your car. This will help prolong their durability.
- Consider getting a windshield cover to prevent frost and snow from accumulating on your windshield.
- Allow the windshield to heat up gradually by using the defroster on a lower level as opposed to blasting the heat immediately.
- Never pour hot or boiling water onto your windshield, this will cause damage.
- If there is a chip or crack, be sure to replace it as soon as possible so it doesn’t become larger.
The last thing you want is to be stuck at an automotive center in the middle of winter. Make sure you take the time each day to care for your windshield so you can travel safely in your Chevy this season.
