The Aftercare Process of Vehicle Wrapping
Wraps protect your car’s exterior while also providing some great aesthetics to your vehicle. Partake in the brief maintenance practices outlined above to extend the life and appeal of your new wrap. We at Zach Wraps want your wrap to look great when you walk out the door, but also a year later as well. Our process plus your maintenance is the perfect mix to achieve this goal.

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.
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.
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 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 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.
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 & 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.
