“Avoid harsh cleaning products
To avoid damaging your windshield, avoid using harsh chemicals such as ammonia-based glass cleaners. Use products meant for the windshield, and be sure to clean it with a microfiber cloth.
Don’t park your car under direct sunlight
Avoid parking your car under direct sunlight, especially in places with extreme temperatures, as it can lead to stress cracks in the windscreen, which could put your entire windshield at risk of breakage. Parking your car under direct sunlight for long periods could also lead to the further spread of any existing small chips and cracks.
Clean and replace windscreen wipers regularly
Accumulation of dust and dirt can cause windshield wipers to warp over time, and can result in scratches on the windshield, further eclipsing your vision. Clean the wiper blades regularly to prevent them from warping and replace them at least once a year to protect your windshield.”

Perhaps the best advice for auto glass maintenance is to take your vehicle in for glass repair if you notice a chip or crack. Postponing such repairs might cause the crack to expand which possibly could require a replacement. That would lead to a large cost increase which could have been saved with a repair job. Always go with a professional and make sure you get a warranty when glass work is performed.
