What Makes Mobile Auto Glass Replacement So Great?

Welcome back to the Denver Mobile Auto Glass blog! Last time, we finished up a short blog series that looked at some excellent fall car maintenance tips to get your car ready for the cold weather ahead. Today, we will shift our focus to exploring some of the benefits of mobile auto glass replacement and repair, which we proudly offer to the communities in and around Denver. Please read below to learn more about this outstanding service.

Time is Valuable

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the more than 10 years we’ve been in business in Denver, it’s that every second you spend sitting at a windshield replacement shop is time you could be spending making money at work, playing with your kids at the park, or writing that last-minute term paper. While we are wholly committed to providing every customer with a quick, yet efficient windshield replacement when you bring your car to us, we understand that it is still one additional thing that takes time out of your busy day. However, mobile auto glass replacement allows us to come to wherever you are so that you can continue doing the things you need to get done or enjoy doing while having your windshield replaced.   

Quite Simply…It’s All About Convenience

As we’ve already mentioned, time is everything, and most of us just don’t have enough of it. To be frank, the best thing about mobile auto glass replacement is its convenience. Our expert technicians can meet you anywhere, and when we say anywhere, we mean it. Do you need to get some shopping done at the Cherry Creek Mall? That’s fine, we’ll meet you there and replace your auto glass while you have fun shopping. Can’t break away from work? We’ll come to your office, job site, or restaurant and replace your auto glass. There are few things in life that offer as much convenience as a mobile auto glass replacement, so you should take advantage of this excellent service when you can.

Schedule a Mobile Auto Glass Replacement

These are the two top reasons why mobile windshield replacement is beneficial, but tune in for part two of this short blog series to learn even more awesome reasons why mobile auto glass replacement is an excellent service. If you’re already convinced, call Denver Mobile Auto Glass today and we’ll send one of our auto glass replacement technicians to meet you at your location of choice.

Best Ways to Prepare Your Car for Fall, Part 3

Welcome back! In our recent posts, we looked at some great ways to get your vehicle ready for fall, and today, we’ll finish up this short blog series with a few more helpful fall maintenance tips. When the seasons change here in Denver, that usually means a new set of demands will likely be placed on your car. To make sure your car is in tip-top shape for the cooler weather ahead, follow these tips listed below.

Check Your Car’s HVAC System

As the cooler fall temperatures settle in along the Front Range, you’ll want to make sure your car’s heating system is functioning properly. For an efficient heating system, the heater core, thermostat, blower fan, condenser, compressor, evaporator, and all the heating and air controls should be checked. With the 90 and 100 degree days we saw in Denver towards the end of the summer, your car’s air conditioning system was probably running at full blast, which is why you’ll want to have your HVAC system serviced, especially be winter is here. Any leaks, malfunctions, or worn out components can cause little to no airflow, loss of heat, and may even make loud, clanking sounds that can become a distraction when driving. It’s also a good idea to check the vents to make sure they are operating smoothly so you can feel the heat when it’s time to crank it.

Inspect the Car for Leaks

If there is any leaking fluid leaving puddles underneath your car, it’s best to take your car in to have it serviced. Leaks are never a good thing; however, they could be a sign that something serious is happening underneath the hood. You don’t want to wait until you’re driving down I-25 during the first snowstorm and find out the hard way that your car has been leaking antifreeze, brake fluid, or power steering fluid.

Inspect Your Auto Glass

Do you have a small chip or crack in your windshield that you’ve been meaning to have repaired? Or worse, is there a large crack spidering across the length of your windshield, making it hard to see what’s in front of you? To avoid further damage to your windshield, call Denver’s windshield replacement experts to repair any auto glass issues, or for a professional windshield replacement. At Denver Mobile Auto Glass, we can come to you to replace your windshield or you can bring your vehicle into our shop for a windshield replacement. Protect your windshield from the cooler temperatures this fall with an expert windshield replacement or repair. Thank you for reading our short blog series looking at fall maintenance tips for your vehicle.

Best Ways to Prepare Your Car for Fall, Part 2

Hi there, and welcome back to the Denver Mobile Auto Glass blog. Last time, we began looking at some of the best ways to prepare your vehicle for the fall season ahead. As you’re well aware, we’ve had some dynamic weather in Colorado as of late. Because you probably took a lot of road trips, camping trips in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains, and took that Toyota four-wheeling in the backcountry this summer, your vehicle could use some love and attention. Let’s continue exploring some more ways you can prepare your car for the cooler temperatures ahead.

Battery Check

When’s the last time you checked your car battery? If you’re scratching your head drawing a complete blank, it’s been too long. The last thing you want is to be running late for work during an early morning rainstorm and have your car battery fail on you. Did you know that cold temperatures can affect the function of your car’s battery? Cooler temperatures, and especially those that dip below freezing, can make starting your engine difficult because it takes twice as much battery current as it does in normal weather conditions. To avoid a dead or failing battery, have it tested at your local auto parts store.   

Replace Worn-Out Windshield Wipers

Your windshield wipers probably got a lot of use this summer with all of the rain along the Front Range. And if you took any trips up mountainous dirt roads to go camping, your wipers probably worked overtime to remove all the dirt and grime from the windshield. As we’ve mentioned time and time again, replace those wiper blades every six months unless you notice they are frayed or aren’t cleaning off your windshields like they should be. If you changed them in the spring in preparation for the spring showers here in Denver, it’s time to replace them. Doing so before the snow starts falling is a great way to prepare your ride for even colder weather that will be here in no time.

Schedule an Auto Glass Replacement

Most importantly, you’ll want to schedule an auto glass replacement before the cold weather really sets in. Cold weather affects auto glass in a number of ways and can make a small crack turn into a large problem. To avoid this, call Denver Mobile Auto Glass, Denver’s auto glass replacement experts. As Denver’s Top Rated Local® auto glass repair company, we’ll replace and repair any auto glass to get your car sealed up and safe for driving this fall.

Best Ways to Prepare Your Car for Fall, Part 1

Hello, and welcome back to our blog! Fall has finally arrived in Colorado, so it’s time to say “Goodbye” to 90-degree heat and “Hello” to crisp, cool days. Along with fall comes a new set of demands placed on vehicles. While you probably used your car to take road trips around Colorado and beyond, or packed your Subaru Outback full of camping gear for a mountain getaway, your car most likely requires a little attention. Giving your car a good once over for each new season is a great way to make sure your vehicle is in ship-shape for the oncoming season and, today, we would like to look at some of the best ways to prepare your car for the fall season. Please continue reading part one of our short blog series below.

Inspect Your Tires

Because you probably did a lot of long distance driving this summer, it’s a good idea to check your tires. As you inspect your tires, check the tire pressure using a tire pressure gauge. The recommended air pressure for your tires is usually listed on a sticker on the foot step or in the space where your door seals when closed. If you notice a tire loses pressure quickly after being filled, there is likely a small hole, that, if left in disrepair, may lead to costly repairs down the road. Additionally, check for signs of wear and tear. Does the tread look worn out and frayed? If so, take your vehicle in for a tire rotation, repair, or to get a new set installed.

Inspect Your Auto Glass

There’s nothing worse than having a windshield that is full of tiny, micro-sized chips, large chips, cracks, and worst of all, long, obtrusive cracks that run across the length of the windshield. Not only is it unsightly to look at, a damaged windshield is dangerous because it can inhibit a driver’s vision. What’s more, as colder temperatures settle in along the Front Range, the change in temperature may cause a crack or chip in your windshield to get worse, especially when the temperatures reach freezing. One of the most important steps you can take when preparing your car for the colder Colorado seasons is to schedule your vehicle for a windshield replacement or repair.

These are just a few of the ways to prepare your vehicle for the fall season. Tune in to our blog next time for part two to learn more tips for getting your car ready for the cooler weather ahead. To schedule a windshield replacement in Denver, call Denver Mobile Auto Glass, where our mobile windshield technicians will come to you to do the replacement or repairs.

5 Tips for Preparing Your Car for Bad Weather, Part 2

Hi there, and welcome back! In our recent post, we began looking at the ways to prepare your vehicle for bad weather, which included checking all the lights, tires, wiper blades, and refilling all of the main fluids in your car. Additionally, we recommend packing a roadside emergency kit so that you’re always prepared in the case of an emergency or should you need to perform a general auto repair on the side of the road. It’s only September here in Colorado, yet there are many thunderstorms and tornado warnings that will surely happen between now and the winter season. Taking the necessary steps to prepare your vehicle for bad weather will help ensure your and your passengers’ safety during inclement weather. Please continue reading below to learn more handy tips for prepping your car for bad weather.

Pack a First-Aid Kit

Like a roadside emergency kit, keeping a first-aid kit in your car is wise. Unfortunately, road accidents are an unsettling reality that many Colorado drivers will face, and bad weather only increases the chances of getting into a car accident. A first aid kit can help treat minor injuries sustained in an auto accident and can provide relief while waiting for emergency workers to arrive. Affordable, pre-stocked first-aid kits are available at any grocery store or gas station, or you can always build one yourself. Either way, these kits are great to have around in case of an emergency. It’s a good idea to keep a few bottles of water in your car at all times, too.

Check Your Battery

Inspect your battery for any indication of corrosion, dirt, or other issues that might prevent it from functioning efficiently. If you notice corrosion, clean off the battery with club soda and an old cloth. Are the battery cables and clamps frayed or badly corroded? Is the battery case cracked or damaged in any way? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you might consider replacing the battery or at least have it tested. The last thing you want is to be stranded on the side of the road with a dead battery in the middle of a lightning storm or during a tornado warning!  

Build a Tool Kit

Tool kits are also great to keep in your car because you never know when you’ll need a specific tool to repair or replace something on your vehicle. Use a sturdy box or storage bin and stock it with basic tools such as a tire pressure gauge, a wrench, a multi-head screwdriver, sturdy clamps, work gloves, and of course, a flashlight. This way, if you have to pull over during a downpour to change your headlights or make a quick repair, you’ll have the necessary tools to do so.

Schedule a Windshield Repair

Inspect your windshield for any damage that may require a repair. Small chips and cracks may seem insignificant, yet they may obstruct your line of sight during a bad storm, especially one at night. Additionally, pressure changes and temperature changes can affect windshield cracks, making them spider out and worsen. If you notice any damage to your windshield, contact our reliable team at Denver Mobile Auto Glass and we’ll meet you at your location in one of our mobile trucks to perform the windshield repair.

Thank you for reading our short blog series which we hope you’ve found helpful. This concludes our short blog series exploring helpful ways to prepare your car for bad weather. If you would like to schedule a windshield repair or windshield replacement, please give our team a call, as we’d be happy to get you back on the road with a safe windshield.

 

5 Tips for Preparing Your Car for Bad Weather, Part 1

Hi there, and welcome back to the Denver Mobile Auto Glass blog. Today, we will begin looking at ways to prepare your car for bad weather. While it’s only September here in sunny Colorado, we’ll continue experiencing afternoon thunderstorms, and the possibility of tornadoes, before the rain turns into snow later this year. Therefore, preparing your vehicle with tools and supplies can keep you and your passengers safe in the case of stormy or inclement weather. Please continue reading below to learn more.

Check the Lights & Tires

The last thing you want is to have one working headlight during the middle of a storm, especially at night. And you definitely don’t want to encounter a shredded or flat tire in the middle of a lightning storm. Check that your headlights, taillights, turn signals, and hazards are all functioning properly. Descent light bulbs are relatively inexpensive, so try to keep spare bulbs in your glove box or supply box. Be sure to check your tires, as worn out or overly-deflated tires will impede on your safety during stormy weather. Additionally, replace worn-out tires or have them rotated to ensure your safety on the road.

Inspect Your Wiper Blades

Having properly functioning wiper blades will keep your windows clear of fluids, mud, and other debris that can obstruct your line of sight during a downpour. If you know that bad weather is in the near future, go ahead and replace your old wiper blades with quality blades; Michelin and Rain-X make cost-efficient wipers that are worth every penny. If you notice streaks across your windshield or can see that your wiper blades are frayed and falling apart, replace them! Replacing your wiper blades every six months is a good rule of thumb.   

Check & Refill All Auto Fluids

The last thing you want during a terrible downpour is to run out of wiper fluid, antifreeze, or worst of all, gas. Check the levels of all important fluids and top off any that are running low. Wiper fluid gets used up quickly, so keep an extra bottle handy in your car for backup so that you never have to worry about running out during stormy weather.

Pack a Roadside Emergency Kit

Packing a roadside emergency kit can help ensure that you’re prepared for any roadside emergency. They’re easy to put together: use a sturdy box or storage bin and stock it with work gloves, wiper fluid, oil, antifreeze, WD-40, tire sealant, a flashlight, paper towels, a reflective hazard triangle and vest, a flare gun, and any necessary tools you may need. This will come in handy should you have an auto emergency during a bad storm and need to pull over to fix the issue.

Get a Windshield Replacement

Inspect your windshield for any damages that may impair your vision during a storm or which might become hazardous during a heavy rain or hail storm. If you notice small chips, a windshield repair should be an easy fix; however, if you notice large cracks, or worse, your windshield is severely cracked or shattered, contact Denver Mobile Auto Glass immediately for an expert windshield replacement to help ensure the safety of you, your passengers, and others on the road.

Ways to Keep Your Windshield Clean-Part 2

Welcome back to part two of our blog. In part one of this short blog series, we began discussing some easy cleaning tips to keep your windshield and side windows clean and free of debris. While the recent thunderstorms have provided some free daily car washes, it’s important to maintain clean windshields and side windows to ensure your safety and the safety of others. Please continue reading below to learn more cleaning tips..

Keep Windshield Wipers Clean   

In order to maintain efficient windshield wiper function, clean the blades regularly with warm, soapy water or rubbing alcohol. Using mineral spirits and a lint-free towel to wipe the edges of the blades can remove tough, stuck-on dirt, debris, and residue, which will help minimize streaking on your windshield. Remember to clean your rear windshield wiper blade, too, as the rear blade often becomes caked with more mud and debris than the front wipers. Cleaning the wipers regularly will also improve the longevity of your wiper blades.

Use Ammonia-Free Glass Cleaners

Ammonia is a common ingredient found in many household cleaning products because of it’s ability to cut through grease and other tough residues. But did you know ammonia can harm tinted windows, and can also damage your car’s interior plastic, vinyl, and leather features? When cleaning interior windshields and side windows, it’s best to avoid using ammonia-based cleaners. Rather, opt for ammonia-free glass cleaners that won’t damage a car’s interiors or tinted windows.

Clean Interior Windshields and Side Windows

You can easily clean the exterior of your windshield with the push of a button or the turn of a switch, while finding time to wipe down the interior windows can be a bit more tricky. The inside of your windshield can become dirty, dusty, and smeared with fingerprints. Also, your interior auto glass can become streaky, especially when condensation builds up overnight after a rainstorm. It’s best to wipe down your interior windshield, side windows, and rear windshield for best visibility.

This concludes our short blog series, and we hope you have found these auto glass cleaning tips helpful. At Denver Mobile Auto Glass, our main priority is to help keep you, your family, and others on the road safe by providing our clients with excellent auto glass replacement and repair services.

Ways to Keep Your Windshield Clean-Part 1

Hello, readers, and welcome back to the Denver Mobile Auto Glass blog! The recent daily afternoon thunderstorms in the Denver area have been helpful in keeping your auto glass relatively clean, yet those tough-to-clean mud splatters from taking your truck to the mountains can be difficult to completely clean off. In part one of this short blog series, we’ll begin looking at some easy cleaning tips to keep your windshield and side windows clean and free of debris, while also ensuring your safety and the safety of others on the the road. Continue reading on to learn these helpful cleaning tips.

Purchase Good Windshield Wipers

While this may seem like the obvious way to keep your windshield clean, some windshield wipers are more effective than others. Spend a few extra bucks and invest in a good pair of windshield wipers for your front windshield, and, if applicable, for your rear windshield. Quality windshield wipers don’t have to break the bank. In fact, there are many affordable, high-quality blades that will last. Michelin and Rain-X offer cost-efficient wipers that are worth the investment. Change your wiper blades every six months for safety, unless you notice obstructive streaks on your windshield or if it’s clear they’re falling apart—change them as sooner.

Use a Microfiber Towel

An affordable, high-quality microfiber towel makes cleaning your interior and exterior windshields and side windows easy. Whether you need a quick wipedown to improve visibility or want to give your windows a heavy-duty cleaning, microfiber towels gently and efficiently clean your auto glass with or without cleaning solution. Zwipes Microfiber Cleaning Cloths are effective and affordable, which are available on Amazon in bulk. You can also find affordable, high-quality microfiber towels at any Walmart or auto supply store.

Check Your Windshield Fluid

This is another obvious way to keep your windshield clean that sometimes gets neglected. Top off your wiper fluid regularly, and make sure the fluid hose is functioning properly. With a wide variety of wiper fluids available, go with an affordable, all-season wiper fluid which will help protect your windshield from the Colorado elements year-round. You can also add a washer fluid additive to improve the efficiency of your wiper fluid, improve visibility, reduce streaking, and clean even the toughest dirt and debris. Also, check the plastic fluid container under the hood for cracks or leaks and replace the container if you find any issues. Additionally, check your hoseline for leaks, especially when you notice your fluid container is full but no wiper fluid sprays on your windshield, or if you notice a puddle of neon fluid underneath your vehicle.

At Denver Mobile Auto Glass, we want to help you keep your windshields and side windows in good working order by keeping them clean and free of dirt and debris. Clean windshields and side windows will help keep you, your family, and others on the road safe. Reach out to our windshield specialists today if you’d like to schedule an appointment for mobile windshield or auto glass repair.

 

3 Signs You Need a Windshield Replacement

Hello and welcome back to our blog. Today we’ll explore some of the warning signs telling you it’s time for a windshield replacement. Sometimes a crack in your windshield can seem insignificant at first; you can still see the road, so it doesn’t seem like a big deal…yet. But as you continue driving, you notice the crack is getting bigger as it splinters out. You could let it go and hope that is doesn’t splinter any further or you could get it fixed by a certified technician at Denver Mobile Auto Glass right away to prevent further damage. If the crack is left untreated, it will likely continue splintering, creating a sizable crack that can seriously obstruct your line of vision, placing you and others on the road in danger. To help minimize the “what ifs,” our knowledgeable windshield experts at Denver Mobile Auto Glass have composed a list of warning signs telling you it’s time to replace your windshield. Please continue reading below.

Pesky Windshield Chips

While windshield chips often seem small and insignificant, they can become a driving risk in the future. Additionally, windshield chips are really good at picking up glares from the sun that can shine directly into your eyes, causing you to lose site of the road momentarily. Typically, chips are easily repaired and can be filled in to prevent further splintering. However, if a chip impedes your line of site, or there are multiple chips, you should have our certified technicians in Lakewood replace your windshield.

Annoying Windshield Cracks

Unlike chips, windshield cracks are much more hazardous. While cracks can be repaired, they are usually larger in size. In most cases, windshield cracks have grown in size from the initial small windshield chip which has probably begun to splinter in every direction, completely obscuring your line of site, making it incredibly difficult to see what’s in front of you. What’s more, like chips, larger windshield cracks often capture sun glares easily, which can reflect a sharp, blinding light right in your eyes. Additionally, a cracked windshield poses an even greater risk for loss of structural integrity in a front-end collision. What’s even scarier is a cracked windshield increases the likelihood of suffering serious injury during a rollover accident. It’s just not worth the risk. In most cases, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with one of our friendly and experienced windshield technicians to save you trouble down the road.

The Worst… A Shattered Windshield

A shattered windshield is the most hazardous kind of windshield, as it is nearly impossible for anyone to see clearly through shattered glass. Don’t even risk it! You should have our experts replace your shattered windshield immediately. Not only is a shattered windshield difficult to see through making it dangerous to drive when your site is impaired, you or someone else could be seriously injured. If you’re worried about the cost of windshield replacement, don’t worry! At Denver Mobile Auto glass, we’ll deal with the insurance company directly making it easy and affordable for you to replace your hazardous windshield. What’s more, you don’t even have to worry about driving to us to have your windshield replaced. Schedule a mobile windshield replacement appointment and let our certified technician come to you!

We hope you’ve found our tips helpful for recognizing when it’s time to have your windshield replaced. Save yourself the risk by having our experienced team of windshield technicians replace your windshield, while also restoring your confidence as a safe driver. Our windshield experts at Denver Mobile Auto Glass provide first-rate customer service, affordable windshield replacements, and guarantee our work.
