How to Maintain Your Vehicle Wrap

A vehicle wrap is not only an eye-catching way to advertise or promote your business, but also a safe way to customize your car with unique designs while still protecting your car's existing paint job. Your vehicle wrap does require care and maintenance; otherwise, it will lose its luster when exposed to dirt and grime. We have a few tips for you to keep in mind to maintain the life of your vehicle wrap.

Clean your vehicle wrap as often as it gets dirty

A good rule is to wash your vehicle wrap once a week. However, the simplest way to know when to wash your vehicle wrap is when it gets dirty. Difficult stains such as bird droppings or insect residue should be cleaned immediately. Otherwise, the longer they stay on, the harder it is to remove them.

Washing by hand is the preferred way to clean your vehicle wrap

Use a soft automotive sponge or some other soft cloth to wash your vehicle wrap. A rough material would scratch your vehicle and leave marks. You also want to avoid buffing your vehicle, which can lead to scratches on the surface of your warp.

Utilize this simple cleaning technique to wash your vehicle wrap

The steps to clean your car wrap are reasonably simple. To start, rinse your car off to remove any surface dirt, dust, or debris. With a soft sponge or microfiber cloth, wash your car with a mild detergent with a pH balance between 3 and 11. Apply light pressure when washing your vehicle wrap, and test run your soap by washing a small, hidden part of the car to make sure the cleaner doesn't harm the wrap in any way. After you've cleaned the car with soap and water, rinse it thoroughly. You can either let the car air dry or dry it with a soft cloth. 

Maintain the life of your car with simple maintenance tips

Overall, when maintaining the life of your vehicle wrap, you'll want to keep a few essential tips in mind. To start, avoid excessive sunlight or other outdoor elements, such as harsh weather or smog or pollutants. These external elements can harm the vehicle wrap. Make sure you wipe off any gasoline spills of your car and remove any abrasive polishes or waxes off your car. If you find that your vehicle wrap is turning brown or discolored, remove it immediately to avoid damage to your car's paint job. 

With these tips, you can easily sustain the life of your vehicle wrap. If your vehicle wrap promotes your business, and more than one employee has access to these vehicles, make sure they know about these maintenance tips to ensure the life of your vehicle wrap.
