Caring for Your Auto Glass

Every good car owner knows how to take care of the basic components of their vehicle to keep it running well. Changing your oil, rotating and changing your tires, and regular check-ups are all basic things that will keep your vehicle running well. For auto glass, there is not quite as much you can do for general maintenance. If you have your windshield replaced by a professional auto glass company like Windshield Centers, you do not have much to worry about. Our auto glass technicians will install your windshield or auto glass so that it will stay secure and safe.

For auto glass care, the most important thing you can do is regularly check your windshield for cracks or chips. Small chips can easily go unnoticed when they occur. If you miss a small chip in your windshield, it could only take a few weeks or months for that tiny chip to spread into a large crack that could require a full windshield replacement. If you are able to catch those small chips before they spread, you can potentially save yourself money by getting your windshield repaired instead of replaced.

How to Clean your Headlights

The plastic of our headlights eventually gets dirty and corrodes over time, leaving a cloudy plastic that does not let enough light through. And with something as important as keeping up your visibility on the road, you don’t want to ignore this issue. Keep your headlights clean using a few simple tips.

Use a glass cleaner or soap to wipe down the headlights. Then dry down the headlights completely and tape all around the headlights, with the tape on the paint of the car. Using simple electrical tape here will work.

Once the paint is completely covered, take sandpaper to the entire surface of the headlights. If the tape is laid down correctly, you should be able to really take the sandpaper to the headlight without doing any damage. Use your elbow grease here and completely clean those headlights until you see a noticeable difference. The yellowish grime should be removed.

Next use a nice polish to clean up the scratches from the sandpaper. Use a UV sealant on the headlights next. You need to restore the UV protection that was partially removed in the sandpapering process.

You don’t want to take any risks with your nighttime driving vision. That is why you should keep your headlights as clean as possible at all times.
