Getting your vehicle’s glass cleaned up can be a hassle. You need to make sure that all the shards of glass are removed. Some can be stuck on the seat, the seams of the seats, or under the floor mats. These small fragments can be just as dangerous as the larger pieces of glass.
A vacuum can be a great help in getting the smaller shards out of your car. The best vacuums have a high-powered suction. A shop vac can also be useful. You can use a long attachment to reach the shards in your seat and inside the car door. It’s also important to use a paper bag to catch the shards.
If you aren’t comfortable doing this yourself, you can always hire a professional. This will take a lot more time, though, and may cost you a little money. You can also purchase glass cleaning tools from your auto parts store. It’s also wise to talk to your insurance company about coverage but, often the entire cost of the repair is less than your deductible.
In addition to cleaning up the broken glass, you should also file a police report. This will help you if you file an insurance claim. In some cases, you may have to tow your car to a repair shop. Taking pictures and a written report can also help you prove to your insurer that you were the victim of a crime.
One of the easiest ways to clean up your vehicle’s glass is to pick up the shards with a dry cloth. You can also use disposable “wet wipes”. You should also use a damp cloth to clean the glass around the window frame. The best results will occur if you coat the glass with several coats. This will also prevent streaks from forming.
You might also want to use a lint roller. This tool will collect all the shards of glass. You can buy lint rollers in different sizes. Most come with sticky tape on the side, and you can use this to pick up the shards. If you don’t have one of these, you can also use duct tape to collect the glass. You can also wrap duct tape around your hand to collect the shards.
Another helpful tip is to place a clear plastic bag over the broken glass. This will ensure that you won’t see any streaks while you’re trying to figure out how to clean it up. It’s also a good idea to put the bag in a trash can. You should also seal it with tape so that you don’t get any shards out.
You should also take care to wear gloves. This is especially true when you are working on the glass. You should also wear eye protection. You should also make sure that you don’t touch the car when you’re doing any of these things. This helps you prevent from scratching the vehicle. This will ensure that the glass isn’t going to cause any damage while you’re working on it.
