4 Common Problems With Hard Water In The Home

4 Common Problems With Hard Water In The Home

Laundry Room

Doing laundry with hard water can make clothing look dingy and feel rough and scratchy. The minerals in hard water combine with soils to form insoluble salts, making them difficult to clean. It can take more detergent to get clothing clean in hard water. Continuous laundering in hard water can damage cloth fibers, significantly shortening the life of clothing.


Bathing in hard water leaves an unpleasant film of sticky soap scum on the skin. This film can prevent the removal of dirt and bacteria. Soap curd can also interfere with the skin's natural PH balance, aggravating conditions like eczema and dermatitis. Soap scum on hair can make it dull and difficult to manage.


When washing dishes, especially in a dishwasher, hard water may cause spotting and filming on your crockery. The minerals from hard water are released faster when it comes into contact with heat, causing an increase in the amount of spotting and filming that occurs. This problem is not a health risk, but it can be a nuisance to clean and reduce the quality of your crockery.
Problems in Water Boiler Systems and Pipework

Other Hard Water Problems

Hard water also contributes to inefficient and costly operation of water-using appliances. Heated hard water forms a scale of calcium and magnesium minerals (limescale deposits) that can contribute to the inefficient operation or failure of water-using appliances. Pipes can become clogged with scale that reduces water flow and ultimately requires pipe replacement. Limescale has been known to increase energy bills by up to 25%.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying ...

"We have used Ostrom Electrical for several projects; installation of a generator, remodeling/upgrading of an existing home and new wiring for the ‘man-cave’ building. On a scale of 1 to 10, we rate them as a 12! They deliver what they promise on time and with great efficiency. The service teams are innovative and when unplanned problems occur, they use it as an opportunity to resolve the problem and place the customer’s needs first. Highly recommend Ostrom Electrical. They are at the top of our list of reliable businesses in the area."
