Five Lesser-Known Benefits of Having a Water Softener at Your Orlando Home
Most people have a basic understanding of water softeners and their effect on household water. For instance, they know that a water softener removes minerals from the water that make it hard. And, many people know that hard water causes scale buildup on their faucets or creates ugly stains in their toilets and tubs, and that soft water eliminates these issues. However, there are many other lesser-known benefits of having a water softener installed that our Orlando customers are often pleasantly surprised to learn.
A Water Softener Can Prolong the Lifespan of Water-Using Appliances
Just as scale builds up on faucets, it also builds up in pipes and within the components of your water-using appliances, including your dishwasher, water heater, washing machine, and even your coffee maker. Appliances have to work harder when they’re clogged with scale, ultimately causing them to break down and need replacing sooner than they ought to.
A Water Softener Can Improve Your Hair & Skin
Other benefits of a water softener
include softer hair and skin. Hard water can leave residue behind on your hair and skin, as it does not thoroughly rinse away soaps and shampoos. When you shower or bathe with soft water, you’ll find that your hair looks and feels healthier, your skin feels more moisturized, and hair that is color-treated won’t fade as fast.
A Water Softener Can Make Your Clothes Look Better, Feel Softer & Last Longer
Hard water can wear down clothing fabrics more quickly in the wash. Not only that, but hard water can leave behind a residue that makes clothing feel stiff and colors look duller.
A Water Softener Can Make Your Dishes & Glassware Look Cleaner
Just as hard water can leave behind residue on your clothes, hair, and skin, it can also do so on your dishes, glasses, and silverware, leaving them looking foggy or spotty.
A Water Softener Can Reduce the Amount of Cleansers & Detergents You Use
Since soft water rinses more thoroughly and more easily creates suds, you’ll find that you can use a smaller amount of cleaning products (including household cleaners, as well as your own soap, shampoo, and conditioner) to get any job done. Buying these products less frequently means a little extra money in your pockets.
