Today, car signage is one of the most common ways of letting people know about your company and products. Car signage using wraps is relatively effective compared to other forms of stationery signage considering that a vehicle moves from one place to another. It allows you to reach more people in your marketing bid. Wraps are also an efficient and cost-effective mechanism of marketing during corporate gatherings and shows.
Ideally, you want to keep your vinyl car wrap looking new and clean at all times. If you have just fitted a car wrap on your firm's vehicle for the first time, here are three questions you need answered for optimal cleaning results:
How Should You Handle Localised Stains?
Localised stains affect a particular spot on the car wrap. Spot cleaning is thus required to get rid of the particular stain. However, this cannot be done using the ordinary procedures you would have applied on the painted body of your car. You should use isopropyl or simple green solutions to do the job. Rub the solution gently over the affected area and rinse thoroughly with cool water after rubbing the area.
Preferably, refrain from using tyre dressing when spot cleaning. When it splashes on the car wrap, tyre dressing can cause more stains. Lastly, make sure that vehicle is parked under a shade so that you can wipe the wrap when it is cool. Doing so under the sun's heat can cause wrinkles and distort the vinyl cover on the car.
What Sections Are Prone to Damage under the Sun?
While modern vinyl car wraps are fabricated to withstand long periods under the sun, it is always best to park your wrapped car under a shade when possible. There is no threshold as to how much a car wrap can stand up to ultraviolet radiation without damage. Particularly, the boot lid, bonnet lid and roof of the car record the longest periods of exposure when a car stays in the sun for too long. They degrade more rapidly than any other section.
Which Cleaning Agents Aren't Good for Your Car Wrap?
You must be careful about the type of cleaning agents you use on your vehicle's wrap. While some of them might not cause outright damage to the material, they can speed up the degradation of the wrap when combined with other destructive elements such as UV radiation. Refrain from using engine degreasers, oil-based cleaners, orange oil, fuel and kitchen cleaners. Ordinary soap and detergents should suffice.
