Tips for cleaning and protecting vinyl graphics

PALM CITY, Fla. — From teardrop trailers to motorhomes, most RVs sport head-turning vinyl graphics these days. Whether it’s a simple logo, full-length swoosh or entire wrap, they need specialized care. Shurhold Industries offers a few Clean-N-Simple Tips to keep graphics looking their best for years to come, with minimal effort.

The first step is to begin with a clean RV. Avoid pressure washers and instead opt for a long-handled brush with a combination head. These have soft bristles for general use around the vinyl and medium for scrubbing stubborn road grime along the bottom.

If the RV needs waxing, mask-off the vinyl with blue painters tape. Many products have built-in cleaners that are ideal for clear coated paint or gelcoat, but can degrade graphics. It also protects the edges of the graphic or wrap from lifting if using a polisher.

With the tape removed, spray the vinyl with a detailing product such as Shurhold’s Serious Shine. It cleans accumulated dirt, polishes without abrasives and protects from the ravages of UV rays in one easy step. It also repels water to keep unsightly spots from forming. Simply wipe over the area with a microfiber towel, turn the cloth and lightly buff. The more often it’s applied, the longer the graphics will last.

One-step quick detailers like Serious Shine also work on touch screens, chromed and stainless steel, glass, and wheels and tires. Inside or out, it cleans a wide range of surfaces without leaving a greasy residue.

Shurhold is dedicated to educating owners on RV value preservation. Inventor of the One Handle Does It All system, Shurhold manufactures specialty care items and accessories to clean, polish and detail.
