It is crucial to keep your car headlights clean and in perfect working order. Having a busted headlight during a nighttime commute can be an extremely unsafe and harrowing experience. Moffatt Autoworks has experienced auto mechanics that provide a variety of headlight repair services to clients in Milton and Halton Hills. Headlights are made to be sturdy as they take a great amount of gravel impact. However, the polycarbonate plastic material used to make these lights goes through incredible amounts of wear and tear because of exposure to the sun. Even though manufacturers coat the lenses with UV protective materials, these wear down over time, resulting in visibility issues due to oxidation of the plastic.
We usually don’t pay attention to headlights until they completely stop working. Apart from the effects of U/V rays and gravel impacts, there are several other things that lead to the gradual wear and tear of one's car headlights. Salty or slushy roads, tar, dust, pollutants and car wash chemicals all contribute to the process of making headlights faded and cloudy. Poorly maintained headlights are a serious safety hazard not only for you but the other drivers as well. Therefore, it is important to regularly clean, maintain and if necessary, restore your car headlights.
