If you are looking to design a vinyl wrap for your vehicle, it is worth knowing how to protect your investment. Though every car wrap we offer is made of high-quality vinyl and features exceptional durability, they are not indestructible. As leading providers of vinyl wraps for all types of vehicles, the team at Wrap Guys understands the importance of hazard awareness and preventative maintenance. While some hazards can be encountered at any time of the year, there are many hazards that can only occur during summer. That is why our team has provided a list of tips for keeping your vehicle wrap safe in summer and minimizing the risk of damage.
3 Tips to Keep Your Wrap Safe in Summer
To keep your wrap safe from summer hazards, consider the following tips:
1. Park in the Shade
Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight on extremely hot days can cause your wrap to fade, shrink, and crack, resulting in the need for repairs. Though it may take a few extra minutes at times, it is worth finding shaded parking areas wherever possible to limit exposure to direct sunlight. This is especially true when parking at work or at home, as your vehicle will be immobile for extended periods of time.
2. Frequently Wash Your Wrap
One of the best ways to maintain your wrap during summer is by washing it at least once per week. When washing your wrap, be sure to avoid pressure washers and automated car washes as either of these methods can puncture the wrap or cause it to separate from the surface of your vehicle. When washing your car, it is best to do so by hand with cold water, soap, and a sponge. Regular washing will help to ensure that stains and debris do not have a chance to bake into your wrap.
3. Keep an Eye on Dirt and Debris
It is always worth taking the time to brush dirt and debris off your car whenever you notice it. These substances can quickly accumulate on top of your vehicle and on the front end, so they should be given additional attention. Failure to remove dirt and debris in a timely manner can result in staining and other damage. If you start to notice signs of damage, it is a good idea to get your wrap inspected by a professional as soon as possible to minimize the amount of repairs required.
