We never want to see a wrap fail before it time if your wrap is dried, cracking or fading – you aren’t taking care of it properly! Our Goal at TGD wraps is to ensure all of our customers walk out of our doors satisfied and educated about caring for wraps. It is truly every easy to care for your wrap.
Care for your wrap by using high-quality products designed specifically for vinyl care. Like the rest of your vehicle, your wrap requires regular cleaning and maintenance. Washing your wrap regularly and keeping it away from potential pollutants will result in a longer-lasting, more vibrantly colorful wrap.
Below are cleaning and maintenance procedures that will help keep your wrap looking its best and will allow you to get the full life out of your investment.
- Keep it clean – any time dirt starts collecting it’s best to get it washed off.
- Hand wash with mild detergent and clean water using a soft microfiber sponge or cloth. After rinsing, minimize water spotting by using a silicone squeegee or microfiber to remove water. Dry with a clean microfiber cloth.
- Test any cleaner on a small area before using on larger areas.
- Help protect your investment by using a wash/polish. If you have your vehicle professionally detailed make sure they use a wax that is safe for vinyl.
- Let your wrap air dry or dry it with a microfiber cloth, rather than using high-powered air blowers.
- We recommend ceramic coating your wrap if increase the life and ease of cleaning. Ask us today about having your car professionally coated by out team today.
- DO NOT allow corrosive substances to remain in contact with your vinyl, make sure to clean any spills as soon as possible. Water almost always contains some trace amounts of minerals like calcium or iron, salt or air pollution. The longer they sit, the more they bond and wear away at your wrap or clear coat.
- DO NOT use automatic car washes that use bristles or high-pressure water sprayers. If you purchase a wrap from TGD wraps, doing so can result in your warranty being voided.
- DO NOT use a buffer when applying wax/polish to your wrap.
- DO NOT use standard wax/polish on any matte or textured finish. The chemicals in most standard wax products can eat away at vinyl.
- DO NOT use rear windshield wipers or rear defrosters on perforated window graphics unless absolutely necessary. Do not roll down any window that has perforated window graphics, as this can damage your graphics.
