Expert Tips on Washing & Caring for your Vehicle Wrap

You've made an investment in your vehicle wrap, showcasing an amazing design, attracting new clients, and strengthening your brand. Now, what's next? Just like your vehicle, your new wrap requires regular care and maintenance to maintain its pristine appearance. We sat down with our lead vehicle installer, Steven Mott, to bring you essential tips and tricks for preserving your vehicle wrap.

How Often Should I Wash My Wrapped Vehicle?

The frequency of washing your wrap depends on the environment your car encounters. We suggest washing your wrap once a week under normal conditions. However, if your car navigates construction sites, muddy terrain, or encounters potentially damaging substances, consider washing it twice a week. You can use any high-quality car detergent, dilute it with water, and wash your wrap by hand using a soft sponge or a clean, soft towel. To prevent streaks and spots, employ a squeegee to remove excess water and then promptly dry it with a microfiber towel. While it's generally safe to run your wrapped vehicle through a brushless car wash, we always recommend hand washing for a safer and more thorough clean. Refrain from using a pressure washer to remove tough stains, as it carries the risk of seam damage and permanent wrap harm.

Can I Use a Car Wash for My Wrapped Vehicle?

Although it's safe to take your wrapped vehicle through a brushless car wash, we strongly advocate hand washing for a safer and more comprehensive cleaning.

How to Remove Heavy Mud, Bugs, or Stubborn Stains

When dealing with substantial dirt and stubborn stains, swift action is crucial. Soak the affected area in warm soapy water for approximately five minutes. Once the dirt has loosened, rinse with water and pat dry with a clean microfiber towel. If the stain proves persistent, consider using a non-solvent and oil-free bug and stain remover of your choice. Always perform a spot test in a hidden location to ensure the cleaner won't damage the wrap material.

Is it Safe to Leave My Vehicle Wrap Outdoors Year-round?

While we use top-quality materials that have stood the test of time, we don't recommend leaving your vehicle outside in the elements for extended periods. Like anything else, vehicle wrap materials can degrade and be harmed by extreme temperatures, sunlight, heavy rain, dust, dirt, and other natural elements. When parking for extended durations, try to find a shaded spot to reduce exposure to UV rays, a major contributor to wrap material breakdown and fading.
