A vehicle wrap, like the rest of your vehicle, needs the appropriate maintenance to ensure longevity. Here are some ways to make your fleet wraps last as long as possible.
Vehicle Wrap Care Tips
The best way to care for your vehicle wrap is to keep it clean. But there are some things you need to keep in mind because there are some important differences in cleaning procedures when a vehicle has a vinyl wrap.
What to Do
Wash it often: Keeping debris, dirt, and grease off the vehicle’s wrap will help it to last longer. This will also help prevent any buildup on the wrap, which could lead to damage.
Hand washing is recommended: A soft rag or sponge is the gentlest way to wash a vehicle and not damage the vehicle wrap. For companies with several fleet vehicles, this may not be practical. Instead, opt for a regular hose with a spray nozzle.
Remove stains and insects quickly: Remove stains as soon as you notice them to prolong the life of your vinyl wrap. Soak the area with soapy water, then lightly rub it with a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid solvents since they can damage the vinyl. Thoroughly rinse the area once you’re done.
What Not to Do
Don’t go through a car wash with a wrapped vehicle: The brushes can pull at the edges and scratch the vinyl. The strong jets of water used in touchless car washes can lift the vinyl at the seams and should be avoided.
Don’t pressure wash: A hand wand pressure washer has the potential to lift the seams of vinyl in the same way as a carwash. Fleet graphics are a great way to get noticed. Contact us for a quote today.
