As the weather continues to get colder, Best Auto Glass Installers has a few things you should not do to protect your auto glass from damage during the harsh winter months.
- DO NOT pour hot water on your windshield if there is ice. If there are any cracks or chips in your glass windshield, the vast change in temperature can cause that crack or chip to expand. Instead, try covering your windshield at night, or use a de-icing wiper fluid.
- DO NOT use improper ice scraping equipment (such as something with a sharp edge) because the wrong tool could scratch the windshield, impairing your vision. Once the glass is scratched, there could be quite a bit of damage done to the glass., and more than likely you will need to replace the glass. Make certain you have a proper ice scraping tool in your vehicle at all times.
- DO NOT hesitate to get cracks or chips repaired! The moisture paired with cold weather can make these things even worse, so be safe and repair your auto glass while the damage is minor.
