Water Softening Systems Take the Work Out of Washing
Modern washing machines and dishwashers are technological wonders compared with their earlier counterparts, making it all the more baffling when clothing or dishes come out of the wash looking dull and dingy. When a change in detergent doesn’t help, it’s time to consider the quality of your water. A water softener from Waldman Plumbing and Heating can take the work out of washing, making everything in your home easier to clean.
Defining Hard Water
The water that that flows from your faucet passes through rocks and soil on its way to your tap. Along the way, water absorbs and dissolves any number of substances, from calcium and magnesium to iron and sulfur. The water then leaves deposits of these trace elements on every surface with which it comes into contact, including your clothing, dishes, and appliances. The softness or hardness of your water is determined by measuring how many grains of these substances are in a gallon of water.
Hard Water Cleaning Challenges
In many Beverly homes, a plumbing installation is the first place to show signs of hard water deposits, making faucets, tubs, sinks, and tiling almost impossible to keep clean. While hard water rarely poses a health danger in itself, the abrasive nature of hard water deposits make them a natural magnet for particulates like bacteria, requiring more work to keep every fresh and sanitary. The abrasive substances are particularly tough on fabric. Clothes, linens, and bedding wear out faster when they’re washed in hard water.
Hard water makes it more challenging to keep your skin and hair fresh and clean as well. The deposits can leave hair looking limp and dull and can leave skin feeling irritated and scratchy. Wearing clothing washed in hard water only makes the irritation worse.
