Your tires are set for winter, what about your wiper blades?

Your tires are set for winter, what about your wiper blades? | Wiygul Automotive Clinic

Any time anything falls from the sky — whether that is rain, snow, sleet or even bugs — you are faced with the necessity of clearing your windshield. Wiper blade installation is one of the many services we offer at Wiygul Automotive Clinic in Burke, VA. We value your safety as much as we value your patronage, and that’s why we need to talk about winter wiper blades.

Windshield wiper blades are a pretty basic functional feature on your vehicle. In fact, many motorists in the Fairfax Station, VA area don’t pay much attention to their wiper blades — until they need them most. The small strip of rubber with a stainless steel spine is attached to the frame of your vehicle, and is never more important than when you are driving through a snow storm from Fairfax City, VA to Springfield, VA on Christmas Eve with your entire family travelling along. That is not the point you want to realize you have an issue with your windshield wiper blades — they don’t work and you cannot see the road clearly.

Winter wiper blades are different than traditional wiper blades, it is not just a marketing gimmick; we promise. the multi-edge blades of a winter wiper clear the viewing area better and is made of heavier or thicker rubber. In some cases, winter wiper blades also come with a fabric or rubber cover over the housing as well to prevent ice from forming.

Not only will a failing windshield wiper blade impede your vision while navigating the roads, you also risk breaking or damaging your windshield if the superstructure contacts the glass. Each time your vehicle is serviced at Wiygul Automotive Clinic, we inspect your wiper blades to protect your safety. If you notice reduced visibility or hear the wiper blades chattering, stop in today and we will happily inspect your wiper blades and replace them as well if necessary.
