Wash Graphics Regularly

INPS Maintenance

  • Wash graphics regularly with a non-abrasive detergent Contaminants allowed to remain on graphics may be more difficult to remove. For fuel spills, wipe off immediately to avoid degrading the vinyl adhesive
  • If automated washes are used, touchless are the best. Brush car washes may cause dulling/scratching/lifting edge of the graphics.
  • If pressure washing, ensure the water pressure is kept below 200 psi at a temperature below 180°F. Keep the spray nozzle at least one (1) foot away from the graphics.
  • Soften difficult contaminants such as bug splatter and droppings by soaking with hot soapy water before removal.
