Checking and Replacing Wiper Blades for Safety

It may have been a while since your vehicle last had its wiper blades replaced. And the truth is, depending on the conditions a vehicle encounters, they may need to be replaced every 6 months or every year.

Omaha is known to have harsh winters and hot summers – so depending on how your vehicle is stored or how often it’s driven, our Omaha auto repair team may recommend new wiper blades every 6 months. Wiper blades that are used more frequently or are parked in areas with intense sun exposure need to be replaced sooner. Front wiper blades may need to be replaced more often than rear wiper blades since they are used more often and, depending on how the car is parked on a daily basis, are often exposed to more sun light.

If a vehicles wipers blades are not providing clear visibility during precipitation, you will clearly know it’s time to replace them. When wiper blades no longer make proper contact with the windshield surfaces of a vehicle they can begin to squeak, skip, smear or streak. Worn out wiper blades reduce driving visibility and can be dangerous.

Our Omaha auto repair shop team checks wiper blades during all routine car service appointments. At Jensen Service and Diagnostic, our Omaha car repair experts strive to keep your family safe and to protect your investment – your vehicle – with every scheduled routine vehicle maintenance check.
