Many people assume that polishing and waxing are one of the same; however each is a different process.

Correct and efficient cleaning and polishing makes a remarkable difference in the outcome and gloss duration of the paint.


Waxing over surfaces that need polishing or compounding will only create a temporary gloss and this will fade quickly.

Auto-detail polishing is actually a deep clean of the paint by which entails removing oxidation, scratches, spotting, old wax, swirl marks, and other minor paint defects.

Polishes work with abrasives and/or chemical cleaners to flatten, or level, the surface.

Whereas auto-detail waxing with waxes, polymers, and/or paint sealants provide an extra level of paint protection while yielding a high gloss finish.

Auto-detailing is vital in maintaining your vehicles paint work in good condition. We advise professional detailing regularly as well as upkeep done at home by the owner of the vehicle.

At Janson’s we use only quality products and guarantee only the most efficient and professional service every time.
