Car wraps are a great way to advertise your business or product, but like any investment, they require care. DTM Signs and Truck Wraps in Brooklyn, NY, specializes in vinyl vehicle wraps, which are large vinyl graphics or decals placed over the paint on a vehicle.
The technicians recommend that customers follow these steps to make sure their car wraps last as long as possible.
- Wash Regularly: Any time your vehicle appears dirty, you should hand wash it, taking special care with the sections covered by the wrap. Use water to get as much dirt off as possible. Use a wet and non-abrasive cleaner to clean stubborn spots. Rinse with water.
- Wash Carefully: Automated car washes are fine as long as they’re brush-free and not used frequently. Brush car washes can scratch and lift the edges of a wrap. Brushes can also dull the appearance of a vehicle wrap. Pressure washing should be used infrequently.
- Avoid Using Wax & Oil-Based Cleaners: It’s never a good idea to apply wax or similar coatings when you have a car wrap. If fuel comes into contact with your vehicle’s wrap, wash it off as soon as possible. Avoid using any oil-based cleaners or products.
- Park In Shade Or Shelter: Outdoor pollutants and prolonged exposure to the sun can degrade the quality of your car wrap over time. If possible, always park the vehicle in a garage or under a canopy. Otherwise, try to park in the shade.
DTM Signs and Truck Wraps can replace or repair vehicle wraps that lift at the edges, fade, or scratch off, but with the proper care, their wraps will last as long as the vehicle itself.
