Maintain Van Graphics
Proper maintenance can avoid fading your graphic and extend its lifespan. Follow the tips below to keep your van wrap looking sharp:
Washing: Once your van graphic or decal has been applied, you should keep it dry for the first week. After that, you can wash the vehicle on a weekly basis, but avoid using strong chemicals and waxes, or automatic car washes, especially high-pressure ones.
Van window perforated film or rear window graphics maintenance: Avoid rolling down windows for the first few days after installation. Also, avoid using windshield wipers or ice scrapers since these can damage your graphics. Instead, use a soft broom and defroster to remove any ice or snow.
