If you have noticed white deposits on your sinks and kitchen appliances, you are dealing with limescale. Limescale is an alkaline deposit made of calcium carbonate, which is found in hard water. When hard water evaporates, it leaves behind those unappealing white deposits, known as limescale. There are many things you can do to remove limescale, but the most effective approach is to prevent it with a water softener system. In this article, we will explain the best methods of removing limescale buildup and the benefits of purchasing a water softener from Coastal Energy Water and Air.
How to Remove Limescale Buildup?
This residue develops quickly, which is why it is so important to tackle the problem when you first spot it. If you don’t, limescale will harden and become difficult to remove. Immediate removal is beneficial for several reasons, as not only does limescale leave horrible streaks, but it can also affect your pipes and the efficiency of all the household appliances it encounters. There are many effective ways to remove limescale.
Descale Your Appliances
You can purchase a descaling product, which is commonly used for the removal of limescale. Descaling cleaners are readily available at your local supermarket. However, these products are typically laden with chemicals. If you are interested in a more natural solution, try a household remedy, such as baking soda, vinegar, or citric acid, such as lemon juice.
Clean Your Pipes
In addition to the limescale you can see on your kitchen appliances, there is a more problematic form in your pipes. Even though you can’t see it building up inside of your pipes, doesn’t mean the problem does not exist. When limescale develops inside your pipes, it blocks the flow of water. Eventually, it can cause water to back up completely. You can clean your pipes in the same way you descale your appliances: either purchase a solution at the store or make your own remedy. Again, taking the homemade route is more natural and requires ingredients you likely have on hand.
Many homeowners use vinegar and baking soda mixed with water to do the trick. However, sometimes the solution is not as simple as applying a flushing solution. If this trick does not work, then you may need to contact a plumber.
Buy a Water Filtration System
While the methods we have listed are effective, they do not provide homeowners with a long-lasting solution. If hard water is present, you will continue to experience limescale buildup. However, this nuisance can be completely eliminated by purchasing a water filtration system that will soften your hard water. This is the most effective solution for getting rid of limescale. You will no longer have to worry about descaling your appliances and hiring plumbers to clean your kitchen and bathroom pipes.
