Is hard water becoming a nuisance in your home? Hard water can cause a number of problems to a number of things in your home. It can even cause problems with your skin. If you are not sure if hard water is a problem in your home, our team at Ultimate Plumbing can test your water for minerals that cause hard water. But we also have a few tips and tricks to tell if your home is suffering because of hard water.
- Dry and itchy skin. Hard water often leaves soap residue on your skin, causing skin irritation. If you notice your skin is drier than normal or if your family is suffering from eczema, this could be caused by hard water.
- Your clothes do not seem to be getting as clean. Hard water makes it hard for all the soap to rinse away when your clothes are in the washing machine. This causes clothes to look dingy and dirty.
- Soap residue in your dishwasher. Soap not being rinsed away from your dishes can cause hard water spots to form. It can also leave a rough film on your dishes. Hard water can also cause rust spots to form on your plates and silverware.
- Appliance problems. Hard water can cause sediment to build up in your washing machine, dishwasher, water heater, and even your ice maker. This causes your appliances to be less efficient and wear out faster.
