Method Of Cleaning A Matte Black Wrap

The process of cleaning matte car wrap requires careful attention. It has a muted surface without any shine which makes dust and scratches easily visible on it. Fingerprints and other marks can be readily seen too. Here’s how you can clean it and keep it looking its best for a long time:

How To Clean A Matte Black Wrapped Car?

1. Rinse Your Matte Wrapped Car

Gently rinse the matte black-wrapped car with clean water. It should neither be hot nor extremely cold. This will remove loose dirt and grit. You can either do it with a bucket mug or if you are using the hose, rinse with a very gentle stream. 

2. Apply Soapy Solution To The Wrap

Starting from the roof, apply a soapy solution to the matte wrap with a very soft microfiber cloth. Use very gentle circular motions and be extra careful around the edges. Do not apply any pressure.

Clean the rest of the car in the same manner without wasting time. We don’t want any part to dry. Dip the cloth in soapy water time and again to ensure thorough application. 

3. Remove Soap With Clean Water 

Get fresh, clean water in a bucket and remove the soap suds with a bucket mug or a gentle stream of water if using a hose. Pay close attention to areas like door jambs and crevices. For this as well, start from the top of your car. Make sure all parts are thoroughly cleaned and the soap is washed away.

4. Pat Dry The Matte Wrap

It is very important to pat dry your matte black wrapped car or you will get marks of water on it and your whole effort will be wasted. With a clean and dry microfiber cloth, start pat drying gently from the roof of your car. Do not rub otherwise you might get scratches on your black vinyl.

If your cloth gets wet, take another dry one and continue the process. Seams, edges, and corners require thorough drying so pay extra attention to these areas. You can also use compressed air for drying. And that’s it. You have thoroughly cleaned your matte black-wrapped car at home.

Important Tips For Cleaning A Matte Black-Wrapped Car

To ensure correct and thorough cleaning, and durability of your matte wrap take special care of the following:

How To Clean A Matte Black Wrapped Car?

Avoid Sunlight When Washing

Park your matte-wrapped car away from the sun when washing it, preferably in a garage. If you don’t have one, wash it in the shade. The sun will dry the wrap quickly making the whole process difficult for you.

Wash With Special Matte Wrap Cleaning Products

Invest in car wash soaps specifically designed for matte wraps. These products are formulated to be gentle yet effective, removing unwanted elements without harming the vinyl. Wrong products can make your matte wrap glossy over time as they might have wax and other compounds that help protect the paint. 

Do Not Use Abrasive Materials

Use soft, plush microfiber towels for washing and drying to avoid scratches on your matte black wrap. The matte finish is very sensitive and can get damaged easily. Normal sponges and towels can be highly detrimental to it.

Check The Temperature Of The Water

Take care of the water temperature. It should neither be too cold nor too hot as both can damage your vinyl. If you live in a desert area or dry region, it is better to use distilled water to clean your matte black wrap. 

Be Careful Around Seams And Edges

While washing the car, be very careful around seams and edges. You don’t want your wrap to lift and come off. This might also cause bubbling and peeling as well so pay extra attention.

Clean Your Matte Black Wrap Regularly

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your matte-wrapped car is very important. Wash it once in two weeks or as soon as the wrap gets dirty. 

How To Clean A Matte Black Wrapped Car?

Clean Contaminants Immediately

Any fuel spill and other stubborn contaminants like bug splatter, bird droppings, and tree sap have to be cleaned immediately, Gently remove them with soapy water, rinse, and pat dry. Do not scrub or use anything abrasive. If this does not work, there are many special products available on the market for spot-cleaning matte wraps. 

Do Not Use Automated Car Washes

Do not take your matte black-wrapped car to automated car washes. Don’t even go to the brushless ones. Pressure from water and hot air can irreversibly damage the vinyl. Plus their cleaning agents are not appropriate for a matte wrap.

Avoid Paid Handwash Service For Matte Wraps

If you are opting for a paid handwash service for your matte black car wrap, make sure that they fulfill the special requirement for cleaning a matte finish. Most of them don't, so it is better to wash the car yourself.

How To Clean A Matte Black Wrapped Car?

Avoid Pressure Washing

It is better to avoid pressure washing a matte-wrapped car. However, if you do, use gentle pressure that should not be higher than 1300 PSI. Keep the nozzle tip 3 to 5 feet away from the wrap and the angle of the nozzle should be less than 60 degrees. Read our blog on “Pressure Wash Wrapped Car: Tips and Tricks”.

How To Remove Scratches From The Matte Black Wrap?

Premium quality matte vinyl wraps can fix minor scuffs and scratches themselves when exposed to heat. Just use a heat gun or hair dryer to gently warm the area from 6-12 inches away. 

How To Clean A Matte Black Wrapped Car

Don't overheat the matte black wrap and do not focus the heat on one area only or it will make it a bit shiny. Sometimes a little exposure to sunlight also heals the scratch marks. A detail spray specifically designed for matte wraps might also help.

These solutions are for fine scratches only. For deep marks, big tears, or cuts, get professional help to avoid making it worse. You might have to change the damaged panel of the wrap.
