When you drive away from Carolina Windshield Centers, your new (or repaired) windshield is as strong and safe as possible. However, over time, your windshield will eventually be compromised and crack. You can avoid letting this happen too quickly by being smart with your auto glass. Here are a few tips to follow in order to keep your windshield in good condition.
- Avoid slamming your car doors. Not only is this bad for your car doors, but this is actually quite damaging to the auto glass in your car. The reverberations cause small amounts of damage every time the door is slammed.
- Intense heat is also very bad for your auto glass and windshield. Whenever possible, you should park in shady areas. Additionally, it is not good to expose your auto glass to quickly changing temperatures. If you windshield already has a crack in it, avoid turning the heat on to the windshield during the winter. This can stress out the crack and make it even worse.
- Whenever cleaning your auto glass, avoid using ammonia based cleaners. These are damaging to your auto glass and can make the tint of the glass much less strong. And always use a microfiber towel so that you will not leave any scratches on the glass while you clean it.
The key to keeping your auto glass safe is to avoid extreme temperatures, use the right cleaning products, and avoid slamming your car doors.
