So, you've got a Scooty Wrap on your electric scooter, and you want to make sure it stays looking fresh and new for as long as possible. We've got you covered with these expert tips and tricks for maximizing the lifespan of your Scooty Wrap.
Cleanliness is Key
Keep your scooter clean by wiping off any fuel spills immediately to avoid damaging the vinyl and adhesive. When you're ready to wash your scooter, hand wash it, rinse it, and dry it as soon as possible to prevent any water spots or streaks from forming.
Give Your Scooter a Loving Home
Whenever possible, store your wrapped electric scooter indoors, in a shaded area, or under a cover. This will help preserve and protect the vinyl wrap from heat and UV exposure, which can cause fading and damage over time.
Spot Treat Stains
If you notice any difficult contaminants, like tree sap, soaking them for several minutes with hot, soapy water can soften them up. Then, rinse thoroughly and dry, making sure to avoid using rough scrubbing or abrasive tools that can scratch the vinyl.
Hand Washing is Best
We recommend hand washing your scooter whenever possible. This gentle method will help ensure that your Scooty Wrap stays looking new for longer. And remember, don't wash your scooter for the first 72 hours after installation.
Extend the Lifespan
To further extend the lifespan of your Scooty Wrap, it's important to be mindful of potential hazards that could damage your wrap. While the vinyl material is durable, it's not impervious to damage from sharp objects or rough surfaces.
One of the biggest threats to your wrap is rocks or debris on the road. While it's not always possible to avoid them, try your best to steer clear of gravel or other debris whenever possible. Parts of the wrap may become chipped or scratched if they come into contact with rocks or other hard materials.
In addition, be careful when parking or storing your scooter. Avoid leaning it against objects where the wrap is touching other surfaces, such as walls or poles. This can cause scratches or abrasions to the wrap over time. Instead, try to park your scooter in a designated area where it won't be in contact with other objects.
By following these simple tips, you can keep your Scooty Wrap looking fresh and new for years to come. So give your electric scooter some proactive love and attention, and you'll always be ready to hit the road and show off your personalized style.
