The majority of North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has discovered that 89.3 percent of U.S. homes deal with hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes deal with hard water. While it’s typically safe to consume, it may cause some problems in your house—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, concerns with cleaning dishes and clothing, shortened appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Neal Harris Service Experts can help with water softening solutions to handle it. Whether you’re just starting your research on water softeners or you need water softener repair, our team of experts are here to help.
Benefits of Softening Hard Water
- Soft water could make for easier cleaning, longer appliance life, faster water heating and a cleaner plumbing system.
- Soft water does a better job of rinsing soap residue, which means you will have cleaner looking dishes, brighter clothes that don’t have soap residue trapped in them and cleaner sinks with decreased soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also use less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be counteracted by the minerals and metals in hard water.
- Over time, hard water could cause buildup in your washing machine, dishwasher, water heater and any other appliance that uses water. This buildup can shorten the life of these appliances, lower their efficiency over time and can even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You might also note a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even bigger savings when it comes to your appliances.

Water Quality Alert!
The quality of your water varies by state and region, and is influenced by the processing your water goes through, local infrastructure such as construction, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and underground mineral deposits that your groundwater may be traveling through. To educate people, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), maintains a database of at least 30 million state records of tap water tests, and available online with no registration or sign up so you can discover if there are contaminants in your local drinking water. With EWG's research showing that 81% of the facilities tested in the U.S. have chemicals linked to cancer present in them, you'll want to see for yourself what's in your water.
