Must-Know Vehicle Wrap Maintenance Tips

Vehicle wraps in Houston from Rockwall Wraps are a cheap and versatile way of jazzing up your car’s exterior. Wraps come in different colors and designs that allow you to personalize your car to fit your style.

With the right maintenance, the vinyl wrap can last for years but if you notice your wrap is fading, cracking or dried, it means you are not doing something right. Below are some cleaning and maintenance tips to keep your wrap in good condition:

Spot cleaning

If you notice a small and isolated stain, gently rub it clean using isopropyl. Do not use tire dressing since it will splash and stain your wrap. After cleaning, rinse the spot using cool water.  If you spill fuel on the wrap, gently wipe it off immediately using a towel or paper towel. If you are dealing with stubborn stains, soak it in warm soapy water to loosen the contaminants. However, avoid wiping it while it’s still warm as it might distort or wrinkle the wrap.

Dealing with damaged wraps

If your wrap is damaged do not sweat it. Since wraps are applied one section at a time, it is just a simple matter of having that section replaced by a professional. The damaged area is simply removed and the patch reprinted with the original design.

Is wrap reversible?

Wrap is reversible if the original surface is in good condition when the vinyl was first applied. However, the longer the wrap has been there, the trickier it would be to remove and replace it. Make sure you consult with professionals before replacing the vinyl.

Aside from the aesthetic appeal, vinyl wraps can protect your vehicles’ body for a long time. By getting your car wrapped by experts and with a bit of maintenance work, your car can keep on looking shiny and new for years to come.
