The summer heat presents quite a few dangers to your windshield, making it susceptible to cracks and breaking, especially if it’s already chipped. Here are 5 tips for protecting your car’s auto glass this summer, starting with a mobile auto glass repair in Brampton to safely send you on your way.
Ways to Take Care of Your Windshield this Summer
Mobile Auto Glass Repair
Get chips repaired right away! The smallest rock chip can spread quickly through your auto glass, as a result of heat, rapid temperature changes, or another impact. Don’t wait for the chip to spread. If you can’t come to our repair shop due to your busy schedule, or worse, you’re stuck in an emergency that makes it impossible to drive your car to us because of large cracks that hamper your view of the road, don’t risk your safety! Instead, our mobile auto glass repair team can respond to your emergency needs in Brampton.
With a mobile auto glass repair, our team of windshield technicians will perform the necessary auto glass repair at your location, provide you with care and handling tips following the work done, and safely send you on your way.
Park in the Shade
Make sure to park your car in the shade when you can. The sun is the biggest cause of broken windshields in the summer, so try to keep your car parked in the shade, especially if your auto glass is already chipped. Remember to leave some windows open an inch or so, to keep the temperature inside your car down, and avoid fluctuations that cause stress breaks or cracks on your car’s auto glass.
If you forgot to crack a window open without parking your car in the shade, and came back to it with visible cracks, you can book a mobile auto glass repair or replacement to fix the damage immediately, and get back on the roads in Brampton.
Take it Easy on the Temperature
Avoid rapidly changing your auto glass’s temperature, especially when driving in Brampton in this increasingly hot summer. Blasting your hot windshield with air conditioning as soon as you get in the car, or washing the windshield with cold water after it’s been sitting in the sun can cause small chips and microscopic cracks or flaws to start showing. In a rush, or can’t see clearly from your windshield anymore? Our mobile auto glass repair service can handle the repair right at home, or wherever your car is parked at.
Handle Doors with Care
Take it easy on the door! Slamming the car door can causes a sudden pressure change that might cause the rock chip to spread. Our mobile auto glass repair technicians in Brampton are also trained to respond to other auto glass emergencies, so if the problem is your car door, we’ll be sure to get it fixed right away.
