At Halcyan we don’t kid ourselves that limescale is a particularly exciting subject, however we strongly stand by our belief that it is a neglected issue, particularly where sustainability is concerned. We are delighted to reveal that Martin Roberts and his team agree and reached out to us to be involved in the Spring 2022 issue of Property and Home magazine!
We’d be surprised If you’re unfamiliar with Martin Roberts as he’s somewhat of an institution in British television. But if not, please allow us to fill you in! Martin Roberts has been the presenter of several television programs focusing on property. The most famous being the long running Homes under the Hammer, which Martin has presented from its inception in 2003 all the way till today, with the show still ongoing. Property and Home was launched in 2020 as an essential guide to all aspects of property, drawing on Martin’s considerable industry expertise.
Our article sits alongside a piece written by the Property and Home team and (as you’d expect!) concerns limescale, how it affects you and how Halcyan works to tackle the issue. Below is a little sneak peek from the article but we’d urge you to click the link below and see for yourself!
“If you live in a hard water area you will have noticed limescale deposits in your home; ugly to look at and hard to clean off. You’ll see it on your taps, on your showerhead and in your kettle, but while you won’t see it in your dishwasher, washing machine or boiler, it’s there, invisibly causing damage and increasing your energy bills every time you use these devices. In fact, if left untreated, you can expect to replace your appliances up to twice as often and use as much as 25% more energy, drastically increasing your household expenses in the process.”
We’d also like to take this opportunity to wish Martin as speedy recovery as he’s just recently been released from emergency heart surgery. We’re delighted to hear the operation was a success and look forward to seeing him back in action when he’s recovered!
