A car is among one of the biggest investments you make and so, it’s natural to want to take good care of it. This doesn’t just include caring for the car body of the front and back windshield, but other car windows and auto glass as well.
Let us discuss some ways you can keep auto glass well maintained and prolong its life exponentially.
Park in a Safe Space
It might take you an extra minute or two to find the perfect parking spot, but it is much better than having to spend much more time and money on a windshield repair or windshield replacement. It is recommended that you try to find an indoor parking spot whenever possible to avoid damage to your windshield and other auto glass.
Keep a Safe Distance From Other Cars When Driving
This doesn’t just include keeping a distance from the car in front of you but those on your sides as well. Driving too close means that you are inviting debris right onto your vehicle, and therefore damage.
Clean Car Windows With a Soft Cloth
Unlike windshields, the side glass of your car isn’t typically a laminated glass like your car’s windshield. Be sure to use a clean rag or soft paper towel when moving from window to window during your cleaning process. By cleaning with a dirty rag or towel, you’ll be abrading the glass which over time will leave small scratches. If the glass accumulates enough scratches, it will have a “cloudy” appearance.
Use a high-quality, ammonia-free glass cleaner and a soft rag, cleaned thoroughly before wiping auto glass, and make sure you do so in the shade.
With these tips, maintaining the window glass and windshield of your car should be much easier. If you find any scratches or need any help with windshield replacement and repair or want some more tips, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
