Keep your vehicle looking brand new and make your vehicle graphics last longer by using some of these maintenance tips!
Wash Your Vehicle Regularly
The best way to wash your vehicle graphics is by using a non-abrasive detergent, with a soft sponge or cloth. Make sure you rinse as much dirt off as possible using water only water, prior to lightly scrubbing the areas. Dry it immediately after with a soft towel.
Don’t go to Brush-Type Car Washes
Avoid brush-type car washes or else the edges of your graphics might lift or crack. They also tend to make the appearance of the graphics look duller overtime. Hand-washing the vehicle should always be your go-to when trying to clean it. Although power washes aren’t usually recommended, you can use them under certain conditions. A few settings include: the water being below 2000 psi and the water temperature below 80 degrees Celsius.
If you can, make sure to store your vehicle in the garage as much as possible. When you can’t store it in the garage, park it in the shade. The look of your vehicle graphics can worsen overtime when they get too much sun exposure or are unprotected from other harsh weather conditions.
Removing harsh dirt, bugs and gasoline stains
Removing bugs, bird droppings, gasoline and other harsh dirt and debris requires a lot more time, attention and care. One step you should take is to soak the stains in very warm water for a few minutes at a time so that its soft and easier to rinse off after. Once you rinse it, dry it with a soft wash cloth.
