When to Replace Your Wiper Blades
A good rule of thumb is to replace your blades every six to twelve months. As wiper blades age, the rubber on them deteriorates. This can cause streaks, smears, and decreased visibility. Grand Rapids and West Michigan weather in general can be quite unpredictable. You don’t want bad wiper blades in the middle of a downpour!
Signs you should replace your wipers:
1. Blades are bent/damaged and leave streaks
2. Squeaking noises during use
3. Chatter caused by extreme temperatures
4. Aging and advanced wear
