When running a car wash, it’s important to take all possible measures to prevent damage to the vehicles of your customers. One way to do this is by covering the back wiper blade on any vehicle that has a back wiper blade. You will want to do this before starting the wash process. But, why should you do this? Read on to find out.
Why Cover The Back Wiper Blade?
The back wiper blade is more likely to be damaged during the car wash process than the front wiper blades. This is because the back wiper blade is typically made of different materials than the front wiper blades, and is more susceptible to damage from the high-pressure water and harsh chemicals used in car washes.
The back wiper blade is also more exposed than the front wiper blades, as it is not protected by the windshield. Covering the back wiper blade helps to prevent it from catching on a brush or machinery during the car wash process, which could damage the blade.
Why Not The Front Wiper Blades?
The front wiper blades are typically made of stronger materials than the back wiper blade, and are less likely to be damaged during the car wash process. In addition, the front wiper blades are protected by the windshield, which helps to prevent damage.
Other Ways To Prevent Damaging The Vehicles of Your Customers
In addition to covering the back wiper blade, there are other ways to prevent damage to the vehicles of your customers during the car wash process.
Make sure that all brushes and other machinery are in good working condition and not likely to cause damage. Regularly inspect and maintain all brushes and machinery to prevent any potential problems.
Also, be careful when using high-pressure water and harsh chemicals. Make sure they are not being directed at any areas of the vehicle that could be damaged by them.
For your protection, you may want to consider creating a damage waiver or insurance policy for customers who are concerned about the possibility of damage to their vehicles during the car wash process. This can help to reassure them that you are taking all possible measures to prevent damage and that they will be compensated if any damage does occur.
Covering the back wiper blade of the vehicles of your customers before starting the car wash makes good sense. First, it helps prevent damage to vehicles and, second, it also informs your customers that you care about every detail of their vehicle. Hopefully, this article has helped to explain why this is important, along with other tips offered to help you prevent damaging the vehicles of your customers.
