The life of a set of wiper blades can depend on weather conditions. In very warm climates, the rubber does not last as long because the sun hardens the rubber over time. When the rubber is hard, the wiper blade makes poor contact with the windshield surface.
What can go wrong
Wiper blade materials can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Make sure to look for a name brand wiper blade to avoid a short-lived investment. Tuffy stores carry reliable brands that you can trust. Feel free to ask us about it the next time you visit.
Care and maintenance
Since rubber degrades over time, we recommend getting your wiper blades inspected every 6 months. This will help you avoid the streaky windshield each morning.
