If you want to use it for a long time and scrape it clean, you must carry out the necessary maintenance on a regular basis. What we call the maintenance of the wiper is mainly to keep the wiper blade clean, to avoid excessive dirt on the wiper strip, and not to mix foreign matter. If the wiper is mixed with foreign matter, it will not be cleaned, not only speeding up the aging of the wiper strip, but also easily scratching the front windshield.


We should remove the foreign matter and dirt from the wiper strip every time we wash the car or regularly. It is best to wash it with water and then wipe the wiper strip with cotton cloth or paper towel, so that it is not only clean, but also takes a long time. . The vehicle is parked under the scorching sun. The temperature of the front windshield is very high. The wiper strips that are close to the glass will accelerate the aging due to the high temperature. Therefore, when the vehicle is parked in the outdoor parking lot, we can erect the wiper to reduce the contact between the wiper strip and the hot glass to extend the life of the wiper.


Generally, the life of the wiper blade is about 1-2 years, and it can be used for 3-4 years if it is well maintained. When it is found that some of the scratches are not clean, it can be polished and refurbished with fine sandpaper, which is said to have a certain effect. If the scraping is not serious or the age is up, it is better to replace it as soon as possible. After all, the price is not expensive, and the replacement is relatively simple. The most important thing is that it can ensure your vision is clear enough when it rains, to avoid the existence of safety hazards.
