Three Steps to Prolong the Life of Your Vehicle Wrap

Whether your car is wrapped for advertising and marketing opportunities that it provides, or to give your car a personalized look, taking care of the vehicle wrap is essential.  A vehicle wrap is a cost-effective way to advertise.  But you have to be proactive if you want to prolong the life of your wrap, to get the most bang for your buck.  Here are three steps to keep your vinyl wrap looking sharp far as long as possible. 

Protecting the Vehicle Wrap

There are plenty of elements outside that can threaten the life of your vinyl wrap. You need to be a constant force in protecting your vehicle wrap from those elements like dirt, debris, pollutants, smog, and sunlight. The best way to protect your vinyl wrap is to keep your car clean.

Cleaning Your Vehicle

If you want your vinyl wrap to shed a positive light on your business, keeping the car clean will improve the impressions that you get. Regularly cleaning the car will ensure that there aren’t foreign objects lodged in the vinyl that can cause more significant problems, ruining your wrap. Any little particles that fly in the air or are pushed up from the streets by other vehicles (or your own) can get lodged in the vinyl and shorten the lifespan of the wrap. If you clean it regularly, going over your car with a soft cloth or sponge with soapy water, that should be all you need to keep the wrap in great shape.

Getting Rid of Stains

Let’s face it, in the life of every vehicle comes a little bird poop, not to mention insects splattered on your windshield, hood, and bumper. Your bumper may not be part of the vehicle wrap, but any of these little stains from nature can become a problem for your vehicle wrap. They’ll also add a stain on your company’s reputation if you allow them to sit and fester. As with any stain, the longer you let it sit, the harder it will be to remove. If the stain has hardened, make sure you soften it up with some warm water. Don’t be too aggressive in removing it, as it could damage the wrap. Be patient and gentle, and remove the stain as quickly as possible to prolong the life of the vinyl wrap.

Avoiding Car Washes

Car washes may seem like they’ll save you some time, and save you from having to wash your vehicle. However, the tools used at a car wash can sometimes be too abrasive and aggressive for the vinyl wrap. The cleaning products used can also contain chemicals that are too harsh for the vinyl. If you do choose to outsource your carwashing, make sure you take it to a place where they will hand wash it and take great care to protect your vinyl wrap.
