How to Take Care of Your Vehicle Wrap this Winter

Posted on November 17th, 2017

Winter is right around the corner and snow will be falling before you know it. If you have invested in a vehicle wrap this year, you may be wondering how to protect your wrap when the temperature drops. For the most part, winter weather will not harm your vehicle wrap, however cold temperatures, snow, and ice can cause damage to a vehicle wrap if not properly maintained. At Caskey Group, we know what it takes to make your vehicle wrap last, which is why we’ve compiled the following tips to help protect your vehicle wrap during the winter weather.

cleaning vehicle in winter

  • Do not use an ice scraper or snow shovel to remove snow from vinyl on the body of the vehicle or on the windows. Instead, use a snow broom, soft cloth, or the window defrosters This will ensure that you do not damage and scratch your wrap.
  • If your rear window is wrapped, disengage your rear wiper. Ice buildup on the wiper can cause damage to your wrap.
  • Remove road salt from your vehicle as quickly as possible. Exposure to salt over a long period of time can be very corrosive to both vinyl and paint finishes and result in damage.
  • Remove salt from the undercarriage, wheel wells, and equipment. Rust can develop if the salt is not removed and vinyl does not adhere to rust.

These tips will help prolong the life of your wrap and help extend the life of your vehicle. If you have any additional questions about caring for your vehicle wrap during the cold winter months, please give us a call at 717.764.4500 or contact us today!
