Give Regular Cleaning - Clean your vinyl graphics regularly using a simple soap and water solution. This helps to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants that can degrade the appearance over time.

Use Soft Materials - When cleaning, it's best to use a soft microfiber cloth or sponge to prevent scratching the vinyl surface. Avoid abrasive materials like brushes or rough towels.

Apply Wax or Sealant - Consider applying a wax or sealant specifically designed for vinyl surfaces to provide additional protection against UV rays. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application.

Inspect Regularly - Inspect your vinyl graphics regularly for any signs of damage, peeling, or lifting at the edges. Promptly address any issues to prevent further deterioration.

Protect from Elements - Whenever possible, park your vehicle in a shaded area or use a cover to protect the vinyl graphics from prolonged exposure to sunlight, rain, and other harsh weather conditions.



Pressure Wash - Avoid using pressure washers or high-pressure water sprays directly on the vinyl graphics, as this can cause the graphics to peel or lift from the surface of the vehicle.

Use Harsh Chemicals - Avoid using harsh chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, or solvents on vinyl graphics, as they can cause discoloration, fading, or even damage the vinyl material itself.

Ignore damage - If you notice any damage to the vinyl graphics, such as tears, cuts, or lifting, don't ignore it. Let us know about it. Individual letters can be replaced, or discreet patches can be made.
