Applying a bold, eye-catching design to your company car was an excellent marketing decision. It lets customers know your business operates in the area and puts a human face on the services you provide. Now, you just have to keep that vehicle wrap in good condition.
Vehicle wraps are a popular choice because they can be removed easily later on, but this means that they require special care to ensure the wrap lasts as long as possible. HighTech Signs DFW has the advice you need for avoiding damage to your digital printed signage and keeping it bright and clean.
Vehicle wraps are made from printed vinyl with an adhesive backing. As you can imagine this plastic material may be more prone to damage than the enamel paint on your car. This doesn’t mean you have to baby those commercial vehicles, but there are a few things that could damage them.
What can damage a car wrap?
It’s hard to present a good face for your business when that wrapped vehicle is covered in dirt and grime. Generally, try to keep the car inside a garage to protect it from the elements. When it does become dirty, it’s better to handwash the vehicle with a soft cloth or sponge instead of taking it to an automatic car wash.
How to wash a wrapped vehicle:
You may be able to use a pressure washer to clean the car with some precautions. Keep the washer at less than 2,000 PSI with a 40-degree wide angle spray pattern. Use water that is less than 140 degrees Fahrenheit too. When spraying the car, keep the nozzle at least 12” from the vehicle and avoid the corners where the wrap can lift up under pressure.
