Are Your Car’s Wiper Blades Ready for Winter?

During the winter months here in the Loves Park, IL area, one of the most important safety precautions you can take is to ensure your vehicle has properly working wiper blades that are in good or new condition. Here at Napleton’s Autowerks, Inc. (Loves Park), we inspect every vehicle that comes through our service department for safe and effective wiper blades and windshield washer fluid.

The rain, snow and dirty slush that covers our windshields during these months can be a serious road hazard, so having a solid windshield cleaning system in place can be a lifesaver. Some quick things you can do to make sure your wiper blades are in good working order are:

  1. Run a wet paper towel across them to remove any dirt and debris to ensure a clean wiping surface.
  2. Check for cracks and hardening, two signs they need replaced.
  3. Have a good balance of washer fluid and antifreeze in your reservoir so the fluid does not freeze during extremely cold days. Never use just water, as it will freeze.

Feel free to contact Napleton’s Autowerks, Inc. (Loves Park) or stop by for a quick check on your windshield cleaning system. Stay safe.
