After Care

Hand washing car

Hand washing

Hand washing will always be our top suggestion, but you can utilize automated brushless/touchless car washes as well. Your car’s wrap will accumulate dirt and debris just as you would without a wrap. To maintain the polished look that Zach Wraps provides, you’ll need to do occasional cleaning of the surface. Hand washes are the most gentle; avoid anything that will tug and tear at your car wrap like an automated car wash that utilizes big, rough brushes.

Spot cleaning

Isopropyl alcohol can be a fantastic cleaning agent! For small spot cleans, isopropyl is a great way for you to clean and decontaminate your wrap, though it becomes less practical at larger scales.

Pre-rinsing car


A rinse of your car will quickly remove any loose dirt that is stuck on the wrap. Removing this initial dirt will speed up the cleaning process as you can then focus on smaller spot cleanings that require more attention.

Pressure washers

Pressure washers are a great way to clean your wrap, provided you keep the pressure settings low, which is under 2,000 PSI. Higher pressure can cause damage to your car’s exterior and should be avoided. Pressure washing your wrap is a great way to remove loose dirt and expose the beautiful color underneath.


Harsh chemicals

Harsh chemicals and a clean, shining wrap don’t mix. Such chemicals can eat away at the wrap and leave it looking less than perfect. If you want your wrap to be shinier, you can purchase a warp specific detail spray to get that extra pop.

Cleaning surface with microfiber cloth

The best time to wash your car

The best time to wash your car is when it appears contaminated and dirty. Excessive washing will only expose your wrap to more wear and tear. The best rule is simple: when your car looks dirty, give it a wash.

Drying with microfiber towels

Drying & microfiber towels

Microfiber towels provide a gentle way to remove excess water once the vehicle has been cleaned. Again, nothing sharp or harsh is rubbing and wearing down your wrap. Be gentle, and your Zach Wraps will continue to look brand new.

Great prices as well as great service. Zach has been providing a lot of help to the community, and I wouldn’t want to get my vehicle wrapped anywhere else

Zach Wraps is the best! He was very accommodating and professional! I had a small job, blacked out some chrome and I couldn’t be happier. Would HIGHLY recommend!

Just had our 2024 gt mustang striped by Zach. We discussed what we envisioned doing to the car and he nailed it. He stays very busy but turn around time was 24 hours. We would highly recommend Zach and if we ever need work done again, we will definitely return for service. He also installed a new spoiler on our car at no extra cost.

The truck I brought Zach’s Wraps had extremely deteriorated vinyl. Zach and his team removed it and installed new vinyl. I know it couldn’t have been easy to remove it. They stuck to the price and timeframe we agreed on, and did an exceptional job installing the new wrap. Highly recommend!
