At Wrap Guys, we know that protecting your vehicle with a vinyl vehicle wrap is a much better option than spending money on paint touch-ups. While paint can look great at first, it cannot compare to the unique and lasting look of a vinyl vehicle wrap.
Protecting Vehicle Paint
Vehicle wraps offer many benefits, especially to business owners, because they are an extremely cost-effective way to brand and market a business. One of the main concerns for car owners who are using vinyl wraps for advertising is causing damage to the vehicle’s paint. A correctly installed vinyl wrap will not damage the factory paint underneath, but will rather protect the paint from sunlight, small scratches, and dings from rocks and debris.
How to Protect Your Vehicle Wrap
In order for a vinyl vehicle wrap to properly function, it needs to be properly taken care of. Here are some of the things that can be done to properly protect a vehicle wrap and increase its lifespan:
Keeping it Clean
One of the best ways to properly care for a vinyl vehicle wrap is to clean it regularly. Getting rid of the grime, dirt, dust, and other contaminants before they adhere to the vinyl covering is all you need to do. When washing a vehicle wrap, it is best to wash it by hand because using abrasive brushes and powerful jet sprays can peel off or damage the wrap. Make sure to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching the wrap’s surface, as well as to use chemical and alcohol-free detergents.
Keeping it Shiny
Wrapped vehicles can be waxed and polished in the same way as any other vehicle’s surface; however, it is important to note that the vinyl wrap can be easily damaged by abrasive polishes. If you are unsure about what type of products should be used or avoided, the team at Wrap Guys will help you choose the perfect product for shining your vehicle wrap.
Keeping the Colours Vibrant
Sun exposure can hasten the deterioration of vinyl wraps. This means that it is always a good idea to keep your vehicle under shade or cover when it is not in use. If you do not have access to an undercover parking spot, consider covering the vehicle with a thick cloth to serve as a barrier against the unforgiving sun.
