Hard Water Effects on your Bathroom or Kitchen

When revamping your bathroom or kitchen, you’re probably guilty of forgetting the most important addition – a water softener.
If you live in a hard water area, your home is no doubt suffering from the many effects of limescale, most of which you’re probably not even aware of. Not only can it block your showerhead, stain surfaces and gather around taps, it also looks unsightly and can damage appliances and boilers.

After refurbishing your bathroom or kitchen, you may notice everything begins to look grubby quite quickly. This is a classic sign of limescale.
Not only does it mean extra cleaning time for you, but you also run the risk of scratching new fixtures, like taps, when scrubbing the crusty substance away.

It almost makes renovating your home a waste of money…

How to save your home from limescale

Supermarkets stock specialised products that remove visible mineral build-ups on bathroom and kitchen surfaces. There are also home remedies, such as lemon juice or vinegar that can be effective at removing limescale that has already built up on taps or in your shower.
However, these are all just temporary solutions to tackle the visible signs of hard water damage.

If you really want to protect the investments you’re making in your home, softening your water is the only long-term, permanent way to end your limescale problem. It really doesn’t make sense to spend hundreds or even thousands of pounds revamping a new kitchen or bathroom, only for it to be ruined a few months later by damaging limescale.

Water softeners stop the problem before it happens. They remove those limescale-causing minerals from hard water at the entry point to your house. This means you’ll have soft water running through your home, ensuring your bathroom and kitchen continue to look like new.

Did you know?

On average, it takes around 168 showers to clog your showerhead with limescale if you have hard water. If you shower twice a day, you’ll notice the flow of water drop in less than three months. And if you have a new shower, it won’t stay new for long!
