Important Guidelines on Car Decal.
Car decals are special stickers applied on the windows or body of the car to improve its aesthetic appearance. Here are some are some guides on how to apply and care for the decal on your car.
The first thing you need to do before applying decal is choosing a suitable spot on your car. After you have identified a spot, ensure that you clean it properly to prevent applying the decal on dirt. Once this is done, application should be done by first peeling a third of the decal first, place it on the cleaned surface and then peel the rest of the decal backward as you attach it on the surface. A squeegee is a very handy device in applying decal as using it aids you to press the decal on the surface avoiding the formation of air bubbles. A smooth and neat finish is guaranteed when you use a squeegee.
Cleaning the decal is inevitable when you are washing your car and doing this will not only prevent the accumulation of dirt on the decal but also keep it looking new. The decal should be washed by hand and with a mild cleaner to avoid causing any damage to it. if you are to use a new cleaner for the cleaning the decal, test its mode of action with a small part of the decal. When decal is subjected to pressure washers; it can easily peel off. Safety measures such as using a lower pressure of the jet used to clean the the decal, washing with the nozzle at an angle of ninety degrees and maintaining some distance between the decal and the pressure nozzle can prevent any damage to the decal from the pressure washer.
Other than subjecting the decal to washing, you also need to take appropriate measures to maintain the condition of the decal. One of the ways you can maintain the condition of the decal or stickers is by applying polish made specifically for keeping it new. Avoid rubbing the edges of decal too hard as it may lead to the decal peeling off. A lot of heat from the sun may bleach the decal or cause it to peel of and you can easily avoid this by parking it under a shade or in a garage.
For permanent removal of the decal from your car, use heat or a sharp blade. The adhesive on the decal is first weakened by blowing hot air on it, and a plastic card can be used to rub it off slowly. The decal can be removed from your car by cutting through its edges. The adhesive left behind can be removed by applying an adhesive remover and rubbing it off with a cloth.
