Ninety percent of all driving decisions are based on a clear and unobstructed view of the road, which means good visibility is absolutely essential. This is especially true in the winter months when vision may be obscured by water, road splash, sleet or snow.

Most experts say wiper blades should be replaced every six to twelve months for optimum performance and driving visibility. That’s because wiper blades don’t last forever. Natural rubber deteriorates over time.

Therefore, it is essential to check your wiper blades at this time of year as cold weather can really affect blade life. Freezing temperatures makes rubber hard and brittle, which increase the tendency to crack and spilt.

Here is a list of key indicators that it’s time to change your wiper blades:

  • Smearing or streaking: Sections of windshield are missed as the blade passes over it.
  • Chattering: Blade moves irregularly across the windshield surface, making a chattering noise as it “hobbles” across the glass.
  • Hazing: Oil-like film spreads across the windshield, causing glare, usually a result of road grime contamination to the rubber.
  • Beading: Appears as a collection of water droplets on the windshield after the blade passes over.
  • Wind lift: Blade “lifts” off the windshield and loses full or partial contact with the glass, usually happening at highway speeds.

So if any of these is happening on your windscreen, then give us a call on 02890 455877 to take advantage of our hugely discounted but high quality wiper blade range.
