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.

Detailing exterior of car

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.

Zach did an awesome job on some trim for my daughter's car. We were in a situation that needed a quick turnaround and he turned it around quick with quality work. Now I'm looking for more stuff to wrap. LoL

Zach was amazing to work with ! Our trailer turned out great ! Highly recommend Zach Wraps !!!
Zach’s work was second to none with incredible attention to detail. He was able to fit me in short notice and even made some custom pieces with the vinyl I brought. If you need vinyl done right give he’s place a try, you won’t be disappointed. Worth the drive and the money…finally found a shop for vinyl that I can trust.

I am SO HAPPY with my wrap! Zach is great, above and beyond customer service, friendly and professional. His workmanship is phenomenal, excellent attention to detail. My husband and I were looking at a few places to get our car wrapped, and Zach's prices were in line with other shops. We were impressed that Zach was much more communicative than anyone from the other shops, plus he was able to get our wrap ordered right away and started as soon as it arrived. He also offers a range of customizations like embossing and badge wrapping. If you're considering a wrap and hesitant, I 100% recommend going for it. All my hesitation evaporated when I saw it. It took my pretty basic but practical crossover and gave it a Personality. I LOVE IT! Thank you Zach!
