Cleaning the bathroom is usually a least-favorite chore for most people. It feels even worse to spend hours cleaning the bathroom only to still look around and see telltale signs of scum, grime, and mold.
If you have hard water in your home, there are extra steps you should take to keep your bathroom sparkling.
Hard water can have a lasting effect on your bathroom fixtures, particularly the shower and tub. According to QuickAndDirtyTips.com, hard water can leave behind unattractive residues, including lime deposits. With the right tools and some determination, you should be able to clear away those stains. Just be sure you’re using the right product for the job—cleaners designed to remove mineral deposits can be found in your local store.
When it comes to glass shower doors, hard water can actually damage the material if unaddressed for too long. The easiest preventative step here is to use a squeegee and carefully remove all water from your walls and shower door after each use.
If you find yourself continually frustrated by hard water’s effect on your bathroom fixtures, it might be time to consider installing a water softener. Contact your local Roto-Rooter plumbing expert to explore what your next steps might be.
