Having a window break is not a nice situation which is also a safety hazard. No matter the cause of a broken window, whether it be from an accident, break in, vandalism, or otherwise, you need to get it fixed immediately. But there are instances where custom glass needs to be made, which will prolong an immediate repair. If this is the situation you are facing, there are certain things you should do. Our team at Manchester Car Glass Repair is going to go over what you need to do.
Remove All the Glass You Can
Removing as much damaged glass as possible is the first step for protecting the rest of your vehicle when you experience a broken window.
When removing, make sure you do the following:
-remove as many pieces of glass as you can with protective gloves on
-get a vacuum to remove any remaining pieces
-put the hose by the window seal to remove any stuck glass inside
We recommend vacuuming the seats and floor of your vehicle a few times in order to ensure all the glass has been picked up. This is going to avoid the risk of injury for anyone entering the vehicle.
Carefully Wipe the Frame Area & Window Seal
Take a soft, damp cloth, take your time and thoroughly wipe down these two areas. Remove as much of the dirt and dust as you can. Doing this is going to allow you to properly close off the area.
Close the Window
If going to a repair shop is not possible in your immediate future, you need to close off the window area for the time being. When you have properly cleaned it, you should do the following:
-get clear packing tape, run vertical strips across the window opening. This provides a better seal and helps to keep moisture out.
-make sure to do this on the inside of the vehicle, not the outside. You can peel the paint if you do.
