When Should I Replace My Windshield Wipers?

The windshield wipers on your vehicle are very important to the overall safety of your car. Especially here in Florida, rain can strike at any time, and not having properly working windshield wipers can make it impossible to see the road clearly. Many car owners don't realize that on average, our vehicle's windshield wipers need to be replaced at least once a year to ensure that they work properly. However, here in Florida, you may need a new pair of wipers as soon as every 6 months. 

Wipers aren't just used for rain - they will also come in handy on those hot days when your windshield wiper is dirty and needs to be cleaned. When the weather is extremely hot, like during the summer, windshield wipers tend to dry out and begin to crack and fray. This is when they should be replaced. The best time to replace your vehicle's windshield wipers are - after the summer, and before the spring. 

If your windshield wipers need to be replaced, you will notice some specific symptoms. Your wipers will not work well, and you'll notice that water is just smearing on your windshield. You may also notice spots that are skipping or streaking. These are all indications that your windshield wipers need to be replaced.
