Decal Maintenance

Wash Regularly

  • Wash whenever the vehicle appears dirty. Contaminants allowed to remain on the graphic may be more difficult to remove during cleaning.

  • Rinse off as much dirt and grit as possible with a spray of water.

  • Use a wet, non-abrasive detergent and a soft, clean cloth or sponge.

  • Rinse thoroughly with clean water. To reduce water spotting, immediately use a silicone squeegee to remove water and finish with a clean microfiber cloth.

Pressure Washing

Although hand washing is the preferred cleaning method, pressure washing may be used under these conditions.

  • Ensure the water pressure is kept below 2000 psi (14 MPa).

  • Keep water temperature below 180 °F (80 °C).

  • Use a spray nozzle with a 40 degree wide angle spray pattern. Keep the nozzle at least 1 foot (300 mm) away from and perpendicular (at 90 degrees) to the graphic. 

Removing Difficult Contaminants

Soften difficult contaminants such as bug splatter, bird droppings, tree sap and similar contaminants by soaking them for several minutes with very hot, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
