Vehicle windshields are at the mercy of the weather. Fog, dust, sand, and flying debris can cover windshields in messy coatings that limit drivers’ visibility. Windshields are also soiled inside by interior chemicals and coatings.
As autumn advances in Utah, be ready for storms and other low-visibility driving conditions by keeping your windshield in top shape. Here are some tips to help you see the road more clearly.
Clean the Outside Glass
You can see more clearly through clean glass. When you wash your car in autumn, pay particular attention to the window surfaces both inside and outside of the car.
Your home windows serve several purposes. They provide natural lighting for the home, give beauty to your space, provide egress in case of emergency, and offer ventilation for every room.
However, when your windows crack, they begin to fail at most of their primary purposes; they no longer look beautiful and they leak precious heat and cool air, ruining the efficient climate control of your home. Windows can crack for several reasons, and when you know the reason, you can sometimes prevent the problem from happening again.
Learn some of the reasons why home windows break unexpectedly and what you can do to fix the problem.
Foggy windows can be a source of frustration for many homeowners. Foggy windows prevent people from being able to see outside properly, and they can even block some sunlight from entering the home.
Sometimes, foggy windows happen because the windows themselves are broken. Other times, foggy windows occur because of conditions inside the house. Knowing what to do about your foggy windows and what you can do to prevent them in the future can help you take care of your house.
What Causes Windows to Become Foggy?
When you think about automotive glass repairs, you likely picture starburst cracks from foul balls or deep rock chips on a windshield. However, side windows are just as vulnerable to nicks, cracks, and complete blowouts as windshields.
Automotive glass is designed to withstand the normal rigors of driving, but damaged car glass poses a safety hazard by reducing visibility and even creating a risk of injury. Side glass in particular shatters into smaller and sharper pieces than the rounded particles of broken windshield glass.
Understanding why side windows break can help you safeguard your car from this potential issue. In this blog, we discuss seven of the most common causes of car window damage.
