Tips on caring for your vehicle wrap

Wrapping your business’ fleet is a great way to advertise your products/services and build brand awareness. However, installing a vehicle wrap is only the first step to promoting your business to your target audience. To attract new prospects and keep your customers engaged and interested in your brand, you need to maintain your car wrap regularly.

While custom vehicle wraps are quite low-maintenance, there are some steps you can take to increase the longevity and effectiveness of your wrap.

Regular maintenance for vehicle graphics

Always wash your car and car wrap at least once a week. If your vehicle is always on the move and gets dirty quickly, consider cleaning it more frequently to eliminate dirt and dust build-up. This can be two or three times a week.

When washing your vehicle, avoid abrasive detergents and high-pressure car washes, as they can damage your wrap and cause fading. You’re better off hand washing your vehicle or using a low-pressure wash, preferably under 2000 psi.

Keep it protected

Protect your vehicle wrap from sun and heat damage by parking it in covered areas or keeping your vehicle in a garage. This protects it from harsh UV rays, snow, rain, and ice, which can cause wear and tear, shortening the lifespan of your wrap.

Additionally, when driving, avoid rough or unpaved roads as rocks and pebbles can easily scratch the surface of your wrap, just like they would with a paint job, adversely impacting its overall appearance.

Stay on top of the damage

Watch out for any signs of damage on your vehicle wrap, including browning, stains, and spills. You can easily wash out stains and spills using a solution of warm water and detergent. However, for other types of damage, consult a professional to repair or replace the wrap.
