Clean Gently

When cleaning your mirrors, avoid using harsh and abrasive cleaners. Don’t use brushes or tools that may leave scratches, and don’t use too much pressure when washing. Instead, wash your mirrors gently with a soft cloth and gentle glass cleaner. Cleaning gently is key to preventing damage.

Drive & Park Carefully

Use caution when driving and parking, and pay attention to tight spaces, posts and barriers, and your surroundings. Look before backing out of a parking space, and back up slowly. Avoid parking in a space that is too tight, and try to park in a safe spot that will not be vulnerable to side-swiping by other cars, such as street and parallel parking. If possible, park in a safe area away from busy streets to avoid mirror damage by vandals.

Protect Electric Mirrors

If you have electric-powered mirrors, keep children and pets from adjusting and touching the controls. If you’ve had your car for a long time, you may face an electrical short which causes your mirror controls to quit functioning. At Kirmac Collision & Autoglass, we can help replace your side view mirrors at competitive prices with unmatched service.
