Due to the events of 2020 people have been spending a lot more time than usual at home. This has seen a sharp rise in home improvements as not only are people more aware of what needs to be done to make themselves more comfortable, but also money that would usually have been spent on outings has been freed up to be spent indoors instead. At Cascade we have certainly been very busy installing water softeners these past few weeks. Read on to find out why this is one home improvement that you don’t want to miss out on…

No limescale

The minerals found in hard water combine to form limescale, building up on surfaces and within appliances. Not only is limescale unsightly, it can cause your appliances to not work properly and is difficult to remove. With a water softener, the minerals are removed from the water meaning no more limescale!

Less time spent cleaning

Along with limescale, the inability of hard water to combine properly with soaps and detergents mean that soap scum can build up on surfaces too. This results in more time spent cleaning as well as the need to use lots of different (and often costly) cleaning products. With a water softener this isn’t a problem!

Happier appliances

As mentioned above, hard water causes limescale to build up in your appliances reducing not just their lifespan but also their efficiency.

Happier skin

The mineral deposits in hard water can aggravate the skin plus soap scum can build up leaving it feeling drying and uncomfortable. Softened water leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth without the need for additional moisturisers.

Reduced household costs

Less detergents, soaps and toiletries plus better energy efficiency can only mean one thing: more money in your bank account! A water softener is one household appliance that can actually save you money. Need convincing? Check out the cost savings in our previous blog.

It’s clear to see that when looking at home improvements, a water softener should be top of your list. Contact us today to book your free home survey and you’ll soon be on your way to enjoying all the benefits of softened water.
