Soft Water Solutions
Here at Sykes Services we offer complete water softener service, repair and installation in Waldorf. Our Water Quality Experts can test your home’s water and recommend and install the proper equipment to remove damaging hardness minerals, and other substances to ensure your water is safe, clean and efficient.
The quality of your water will depend on where you live and whether it is supplied from a private well or local municipality. While both sources are known to contain hardness minerals, well water is known for being hard.
Minerals in water are what makes certain water considered “hard.” The most common minerals found in water are calcium and magnesium. Typically, groundwater will dissolve rock like limestone, or metals, like iron and the remnants travel with the water until it is in your home.
These dissolved solids can cause scaly buildup in your home – on dishes, pipes, and the heating elements of your appliances. Soap scum and clogged, corroded plumbing is often the negative result of hard water.
Negative Effects of Hard Water
While hard water is not a health hazard, it can be a nuisance and wreak havoc in your home. Scale from hard water can clog plumbing and damage your water-consuming appliances. Some of the most common issues associated with hard water include:
- Restricted water flow and poor water pressure
- Diminished lifespan & efficiency of water-using appliances
- White film and spots on glasses and dishes
- Film and scale on tile and bath/kitchen fixtures
- Difficulty cleaning clothes – clothes appear dingy & wear out faster
- Skin irritation issues – dryness & itchiness
- Dull & limp hair after washing
