What causes windshield wiper blades to streak?
Streaking wiper blades can be troublesome. It is vital for your safety that something is done about it – before the situation gets worse. Renewing your wiper blades is easy with the Wiper Blade SaverTM tool, but what causes the blades to streak?
The rubber tip gets nicked by debris on your windshield
A smooth surface is required for optimal wiper blade function. Meaning any loose or hardened debris on your windshield causes wiper blade tips to run over it. This action can make the rubber material catch on the clump of mud and rip off some areas of your wiper blade.
Clearing your windshield by using a damp cloth and correct cleaning fluid helps prevent buildup of debris. Making your wiper blade last longer and reduce the likelihood of streaks.
The rubber tip has debris on wiper blade and needs cleaning
The rubber tip on wiper blades is a carefully engineered surface that is designed to clear your windshield in one or two swoops. If the rubber surface of the wiper blade tip contains debris, then streaking can occur when that debris leaves a trail on your windshield.
Cleaning your wiper blades with washer fluid and a damp cloth will prevent streaking and make your wipers last longer.
The rubber gets dry and cracked
Exposure to the sun means the rubber, which is a natural material, will dry, crack, and eventually fail. When possible, park your vehicle in the shade. Not only will the cooler temperature make your wiper blades last longer, but the interior also won’t be so hot. Protecting the rubber, leather and plastics too.
