Debunking Myths about Car Polishing

Table of Contents

At SansStress, we believe in empowering our customers with the right information about car care. One such area where misinformation is prevalent is car polishing. Let’s debunk some of these common myths.

Myth 1: Polishing and Waxing Are the Same

This is a common mixup. Polishing is a process that uses fine abrasives to reduce surface imperfections and scratches. Waxing, on the other hand, is a protective step that follows polishing, providing a protective layer that adds shine and guards against environmental factors.

Myth 2: Polishing Can Be Done Frequently

In reality, while polishing restores your car’s shine, over-polishing can remove thin layers of the clear coat, leading to long-term damage.  At SansStress, we recommend professional guidance to decide the best frequency for your car’s specific needs.

Myth 3: Machine Polishing is Damaging to Your Paint

Machine polishers, when used correctly by professionals, are not harmful to your car paint. In fact, these machines can often achieve a more precise and thorough polish than manual methods.

Myth 4: New Cars Don’t Need Polishing

Even brand new cars can benefit from polishing. Transport procedures and sitting on dealer lots can introduce imperfections to your car’s paint 4. A professional polish ensures your new vehicle truly shines.

Myth 5: Dish Soap is a Suitable Car Polish

Dish soap is designed to remove grease, which makes it far too harsh for car paint and can strip away protective layers. Always use products specifically designed for car polishing.

At SansStress, our team is trained to apply the most efficient methods of car polishing. Our goal is to extend the life of your vehicle’s paintwork, ensuring it looks brand new, no matter how long you have owned the car. Trust us to elevate your vehicle’s shine, right at your doorstep.
