When Should BC, Canada Drivers Change Their Windshield Wipers?

If they aren’t functioning correctly, you will not be able to drive safely because of poor visibility. How can you ensure that this necessary component is always ready when you need it?

Wipers typically last for six months to one year, depending on their quality and the conditions. Dirt and debris can damage the rubber parts, as can wax or soap additives. Ice and snow can cause harm to the blades, as well. 

Keeping your windshield clean and defrosting it before driving when the temperature is below freezing can increase the lifespan of the wipers. You can also move them away from the glass if you park your vehicle outside during the winter.

Finally, you can ask your service centre technician to recommend a quality pair that will provide greater longevity.
