Properly Washing Your Vehicle Wrap

Now that you have your vehicle wrapped, you need to make maintaining its appeal a high priority. A wrap can be defiled just as easily it is applied, causing it to look unsightly and even to slowly peel off your vehicle. If you’re not entirely sure how to maintain a vehicle wrap, don’t worry. GNS  Wraps has provided a simple guideline below that you can follow to ensure your wrap is kept sightly and appealing.

When You’re Washing Your Vehicle Wrap

Hand Washing

One of the most preferred methods of cleaning your vehicle wrap is hand washing. However, when you’re cleaning your wrap by hand, make sure you don’t use any abrasive solutions or equipment.

When you’re handwashing, rinse your wrap with water first in order to remove as much dirt as possible. After, wash with a gentle cleanser and soft sponge or cloth. Lastly, rinse the vehicle again completely and dry with a microfiber cloth to make sure no wet spots are left behind.

Car Washing

If you don’t have the resources or simply don’t want to hand wash, you can take your wrapped vehicle to the local car wash. When you’re visiting a car wash, however, avoid brushes as the bristles can lift up the corners of the wrap and peel the film off, reducing the graphics shine or even possibly scratch the wrap itself. Touchless car wash systems are the best way to protect your car wrap. And just like in the handwashing method, pre-rinse the vehicle before you take it to the car wash.

Pressure Washing

You should consult with the company that did the wrap first before you perform pressure washing. But generally, when you’re considering pressure washing you should make sure you:

– Keep the water pressure below 2,000 psi.
– Keep water temperature below 180° Fahrenheit (80° Celsius).
– The spray nozzle should have a 40° wide-angle spray pattern.
