How Frequently Should You Change Your Wiper Blades?


April 13, 2016

Most wiper blade manufacturers recommend changing your blades every 6 months to a year, but it really depends on what the conditions are that you put your car through. Colorado’s four seasons offer many changes for your car to experience with our sun and dry climate being pretty harsh on those blades. Winter can be especially rough, and we usually recommend a winter blade to help keep us safe. There might be damage on your blades from those times that you tried to remove the ice from your windshield, or even damage to your wiper motor. Over time, wiper blades become hard and lose their flexibility as they start to tear. Torn wipers can even scratch your windshield.

As we enter into Spring, think about replacing your wiper blades as preventative maintenance that can save you from these expensive damages. At Mancinellis, we can help answer any of your blade concerns and help get you back on the road safely. With the ability to schedule appointments online, it doesn’t get any easier!
