Taking proper care of your wrapped vehicle is the best way to protect the investment you’ve made in your rolling billboard. With normal care, you should expect your vehicle wrap to remain in great condition for several years.
However, our sometimes brutal Nevada desert conditions will be working against you, especially during the hot summer months. Here are some tips to keep your vehicle wrap in pristine condition in the Nevada desert for years to come.
How Vehicle Wraps Protect Your Vehicle
Did you know that your vehicle wrap works hard for you in more than just one way? While your vehicle wrap is helping you spread the word around town about your business, it is also silently protecting the original finish of your vehicle.
Vehicle wraps act as a protectant from the potentially damaging desert elements that include the blazing sun and heat, as well as the blowing sand. When the time comes to remove your vehicle wrap, you will find that your vehicle’s original paint has been beautifully protected from fading by the sun.
The vinyl film will keep the vehicle’s original finish smooth and shiny. So, with all that vehicle wraps can offer you, your business, and your car, we’ll go over how to best take care of your vehicle wrap so that you can get the most mileage out of your investment.
How to Care for Your Vehicle Wrap
Believe it or not, even in our Nevada desert conditions, the basic and normal care instructions for a vehicle also apply to your vehicle wrap. Washing your wrapped vehicle about every week should be enough to clean most pollutants and road dirt.
During certain seasons, however, you will find that more frequent washing might be necessary. The best and safest method of washing your wrapped vehicle would be hand washing it. If you’d rather use a drive-thru carwash, brushless ones are relatively safe to use for vehicle wraps. Brushes can be a bit rough on the vinyl over time, and could cause the wrap to degrade. You can use spot cleaning for cleaning small stains and gas spills, too.
Your Vehicle Wrap and the Desert Sun
You can expect your vehicle wrap to remain vibrant for many years, even through the brutal Nevada summers. However, you should still try to park indoors or under shady areas to prolong the life of your vehicle wrap. Extended sun exposure can eventually fade the wrap, so you’ll want to do your best to protect it when you have the opportunity.
