How To Help Your Car Wrap Last Longer

Vehicle wraps offer a wealth of benefits no matter if you’re wrapping a commercial fleet of vehicles or your car. When done by a professional vehicle wrap company, they can look stunning and extend the life of your car’s base paint & retain its value when it comes time to sell. With that said, your vehicle wrap is an investment. A vehicle wrap in South Florida can last anywhere from 7-10 years, but with proper care and maintenance, you’re able to extend that rather significantly. There are vital steps that all of our customers should be aware of from the very first day you get your vehicle back to ensure a long and happy life for your vehicle wrap, such as: 

Keep An Eye Out For Bubbling & Lifting

As a premier vehicle wrap company in South Florida, we’ve put the right processes and techniques in place to ensure there’s no bubbling or lifting on any wrap we do. However, if you do notice bubbling anywhere, you should NOT try to smoothen it out yourself. Pressing them down and trying to smoothen bubbles out can split any graphics on your wrap, and ultimately ruin the entire look. Instead, bring it back to our professional team to take a look at and fix it for you. 

Proper Cleaning Goes A Long Way

We understand how convenient a drive-in car wash can be, however, their harsh brushes, high-pressure water jets, and harsh chemicals can lead to the downfall of your wrap. We’ve seen plenty of wraps get scratches, faded, and cracked due to using a car wash. We strongly recommend hand washing your vehicle only to properly extend its lifespan. You’ll want to use soft towels and cloths, and avoid using any oil-based products & waxes. 

Stay Away From The Sun

With South Florida’s unpredictable weather, it can be hard to gauge when it’s going to be pouring rain or have the sun beating down. We know you can’t protect your car from the sun 24/7, but there are some preventative measures you can take. When parking at home, we highly recommend leaving it in your garage to be safe from the environment. If out and about, consider parking in a parking garage or under shade. This will give your unattended vehicle the best chance of avoiding the harsh rays from the sun and any environmental pollutants from baking right into your wrap.
