Why is looking after your windscreen important?
At D&C Auto Glass, car safety is very important to us. We want everyone to look after their cars and especially their windscreens. We know that your windscreen is one of the most important safety features on your car – it protects you from the elements and provides a clear view of the road ahead. It’s therefore crucial to keep it in good condition, and that means regularly checking your windscreen wipers and washer fluid levels and of course – your windscreen!
Windscreen wipers are designed to clear away rain and debris from your windscreen, and they need to be in good working order to do their job properly. If they’re worn out or damaged, they may not clear your windscreen effectively, which can reduce your visibility and increase the risk of an accident.
Washer fluid is used to clean your windscreen when it gets dirty, and it’s important to make sure that the reservoir is always full. If you run out of washer fluid, you won’t be able to clean your windscreen properly, which could again reduce your visibility and increase the risk of an accident.
So, how can you check that your windscreen wipers and washer fluid levels are up to scratch?
First, take a look at your windscreen wipers. If they’re cracked, split or damaged in any way, then it’s time to replace them. You should also check that the blades are free from dirt and debris – if they’re not, then they may not clear your windscreen effectively.
Next, check your washer fluid level. The reservoir is usually located under the bonnet of your car, and you should be able to see it when you open the bonnet. If the level is low, then top it up with new washer fluid – don’t use water, as this can damage your car’s paintwork.
Now let’s look at the actual windscreen…
The condition of your windscreen is crucial to your safety while driving. If it’s cracked, chipped or damaged in any way, then it needs to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
A small crack or chip might not seem like a big deal, but it can quickly turn into a larger problem. If left untreated, a small crack can spread across your windscreen, weakening the glass and making it more likely to shatter. This is obviously a serious safety hazard, as shattered glass can cause serious injuries.
If you do find a crack or chip in your windscreen, then it’s important to get it repaired as soon as possible. We offer a mobile service, so you can get it fixed at your convenience.
If you don’t keep your windscreen, windscreen wipers and washer fluid in good working order, it can affect your visibility while driving. This can lead to accidents or collisions. In severe cases, it can even lead to death. That’s why it’s so important to regularly check your windscreen wipers and washer fluid levels, and it’s important to keep your car in good working order so that you can stay safe on the road. Your windscreen is one of the most important components of your car, and it’s important to keep it clean and in good working order.
