Spring is fast approaching; for many homeowners, this means spring cleaning. You may not consider how your water quality affects your ability to thoroughly clean and scrub your home surfaces. If your water hasn’t been treated in a while, there are a number of ways that hard water can impact the result of deep cleaning.
Faucet Stains and Build-Up
If your water fixtures have build-up or staining, it’s likely the result of hard water. If that’s the case, cleaning can only solve the problem for so long — eventually, that build-up will come right back from daily use. Hard water can also lead to staining of your sinks and showers.
The best way to fix this problem for good is to install a water treatment system. Soft water will be better for you, easier on your home’s pipes, and mean you don’t have to deal with the same cleaning issues.
Washing Machine and Dishwasher Scale
Hard water can also cause issues with your appliances. Hard water will build up in dishwashers and washing machines, while treated water can extend their life space. Hard water will also make detergent less effective and make for less clean laundry loads.
Wiping off Surfaces
Spring cleaning takes the form of both decluttering and sanitizing. When you wipe down hard floors and counters with hard water, you can leave the minerals behind and create a film or other residuals on those surfaces. These minerals, when mixed with soap, can even create soap scum. This is the opposite of the cleaning you want.
When you have a water treatment system, you can be assured you’re cleaning with soft water and that your home will truly be clean.
