Cleaning and Caring for Your Vehicle Wrap
The benefits you get from a quality vehicle wrap are incredible. Quality vehicle wraps can help build your brand and create awareness in your local market. Beautifully designed and installed vehicle wraps can help a business make a great first impression with the public. But, if that vehicle wrap isn’t properly cared for, it can give the public a bad impression of your business. So, be sure to properly care for your vehicle wrap.
Environmental threats to your vehicle wrap
Any contact with the elements can take its toll on your vehicle wrap. Smog, pollution, sap, bird droppings, bugs, oils, and chemicals can damage your vehicle wrap. Since you have to drive outside, it’s hard to protect your vehicle from all the environmental threats. But, with regular maintenance and care, you can prolong the life of your vehicle wrap.
Cleaning vehicle wrap
The best thing you can do for your vehicle wrap is to clean it regularly. The longer you allow dirt, grime, oils, and droppings from sitting on your car, the harder it will be to clean off. Although your 3M vehicle graphics can handle a car wash, we recommend that you hand wash or use a touchless car wash. A brush car wash can sometimes end up scratching or lifting the edge of your wrap.
With quality vinyl, snow, ice, and salt will not damage your vehicle wrap. However, when you wake up to a frost and snow covered vehicle, be sure not use an ice-scraper or something hard to scrape off the ice. It’s better to start your car and let it heat, then gently wipe off snow and ice with a soft brush or cloth.
Washing tough stains
For stains like splattered bugs, bird droppings, or tree sap, soak the contaminants first to make removing easier. Do not scrape off the contaminants as it could damage your vinyl graphics. If a contaminant won’t soften and wash off, we recommend that you look for a 3M approved cleaning product.
