Road film can build up on the wiper blades and affect their efficiency, so they should be washed regularly with a mild detergent solution

Check

The windshield wiper and blade assembly should be inspected periodically. Even if you don’t use your wipers, the sun and elements will dry out the rubber portions, causing them to crack and break apart. If inspection reveals hardened or cracked rubber, replace the wiper blades. If inspection reveals nothing unusual, wet the windshield, turn the wipers on, allow them to cycle several times, then shut them off. An uneven wiper pattern across the glass or streaks over clean glass indicate that the blades should be replaced
