Have you recently had a vehicle wrap installed on your vehicle for business or personal use? You may be asking yourself this question: How do I keep it clean?
Care for your vehicle wrap & graphics like you would any fine paint finish!
By following these proper care and maintenance tips for vehicle wraps, you can keep your vehicle (and your investment) looking its best for many years to come!
Similar to automotive paint, the vehicle wrap film will lose its luster if exposed to dirt, grime or other environmental contaminants for too long. Even UV light and excessive heat can lessen the lifespan and the look of your wrap. Washing your vehicle on a regular basis, and spot cleaning when dirty areas pop up, will help prolong the number of years you will get to enjoy your wrap.
Waterless Wash - Preferred Method
If the vehicle is not overly dirty, this is the preferred method.
Hand Washing is Best when necessary
We know this may not always be possible, but using a little “elbow grease” is the recommended option for preserving your wrap.
Automatic Car Washes
We only recommend touchless or brushless automatic car washes. Using a car wash with automated brushes is not recommended because they can scratch the surface, catch and lift edges and corners, and dull the finish of the wrap. TIP: If you do use an automatic car wash, be sure to skip the wax option to avoid harsh and damaging products. Allow the vehicle to dry naturally or gently use a microfiber cloth.
If you don’t need it, don’t do it. Please use caution when cleaning with a pressure washer.
Be careful where you drive, park, and store your vehicle.
When should I clean my vehicle? The vehicle should not be cleaned within the first 7 days of the wrap being applied. After this 7-day period, it is recommended to wash your vehicle every 2 weeks (or sooner if the vehicle is overly dirty).
What if my wrap has a matte finish? Use a waterless wash.
You will be able to enjoy your vehicle wrap much longer if you follow our care and maintenance recommendations. If you ever notice anything unusual or concerning, don’t hesitate to contact our team of experts.
