When to Change Your Windshield Wipers

Windshield Wipers

Your windshield wipers are critical for your safety when driving, and it’s important to know how often to change windshield wipers as well. On average, wipers should be changed at least once every six months, but that can change depending on certain conditions. Our service center is here to make sure that your vehicle is getting the maintenance that it needs, whether you need new wipers or something more involved.

What is the Average Lifespan of Windshield Wipers?

How often do you need to change your windshield wipers? On average, they should be replaced at least every six months, even when not in heavy use. Knowing how often to replace windshield wipers is essential for optimum clarity and performance during inclement weather around Omaha. There are various factors that go into exactly how long windshield wipers can last, such as the quality, usage, sun, and heat. Therefore, it could be beneficial for you to park in the shade to avoid any deterioration due to immense heat.

However, regardless of how often you use your wipers or where you park your vehicle, there are some signs to look out for when it comes time to replace your wipers.

When Do You Need New Wiper Blades?

There are a few obvious signs that will let you know when to change your windshield wipers. Let’s check out some of these below:

  • Streaking: If your wipers begin to streak and block your view of the Columbus roads, it could be time for a wiper replacement. 
  • Bumping: You may hear a chattering sound when the blades are wiping away water. This is due to the blades skipping and bumping around on the glass. This could learn streaks on the windshield and obscure your view.
  • Blades Are Pulling Away: Wiper blades are designed to remain flush with the windshield regardless of motion. Therefore, if your blades are not flush against the windshield, it might be time for a replacement.
  • Deterioration: After a while, the blades will begin to deteriorate and begin to crack. This is the most obvious sign it’s time for a replacement.
  • Rusting: While not a direct sign on the blades themselves, sometimes the metal joint that allows your wipers to move will become rusted and struggle to perform properly.
