Increase the Longevity of Your Vehicle Wrap with Proper Maintenance
With the right maintenance, vehicle wraps can last for years. However, there are a few do’s and don’ts when it comes to maintaining a vehicle wrap – especially in the Nashville climate. Although vinyl wraps are incredibly durable, there are some things that may cause damage.
Maintaining your vehicle wrap
To get the most bang for your buck you want to increase the longevity of your vehicle wrap. That means that you need to take precautions when caring for your vehicle wrap. Treat your vehicle wrap with care, and your vehicle wrap will produce thousands of impressions for your business and boost your brand.
Goodbye pressure washing, hello hand washing. No matter how well your vehicle wrap is installed, pressure washing is going to put too much pressure on your vinyl vehicle wrap. Pressure washing can cause the vinyl to lift at the edges. Once the edges have come loose, the wrap will slowly start to curl up more and more. Jagged edges on a vehicle wrap will make a bad impression, counteracting the benefits of a vehicle wrap.
Soap and water
With regular care, washing your wrap down with gentle soap, water, and a soft cloth to dry is all you need. Be sure to read the label of any product that you use to avoid harmful chemicals. Heavy abrasives or chemicals can cause damage to the gloss and the coloring of the vinyl.
Remove corrosive elements
The biggest threat to your vinyl wrap are fuels, oils, and other corrosive elements that are natural for a vehicle to come in contact with. To make the best impressions with your vehicle wrap, you always want to keep a clean car. However, if your vehicle has come into contact with harmful substances, wash them off quickly before they damage your wrap.
Your vinyl wrap basically acts as a protective coat of wax on your car. One of the benefits of a vehicle wrap is that it helps maintain the original paint job, ensuring a higher resale value. Wax, however, will not protect your vehicle wrap. In fact, waxing your vehicle wrap may cause damage.
