Brakes, tires, oil, transmission. All parts of the vehicle that drivers keep regularly maintained on their own cars. But what can you do to maintain your auto glass? No, there isn’t as much upkeep for your auto glass that there is on the rest of your car, but there are a few tips to follow to prevent windshield damage:
- Avoid driving behind sand and gravel trucks whenever possible. Small rocks flying into windshield is a leading cause of auto glass damage, unsurprisingly. Switch lanes and drive around these trucks when safe to do so in order to avoid small windshield cracks.
- Don’t slam the door! This is probably something your dad used to yell at you when you were a kid, but it really isn’t good for your auto glass or your car frame.
- Park in the shade whenever possible during the summer. The heat and sun is not good for auto glass over long periods of time.
- Only use microfiber cloths when cleaning your auto glass. Any other cloth can potentially scratch the glass.
