Can You Get Rid of Limescale Permanently?

Limescale is a common problem that can be found in many homes. This chalky white deposit that forms on surfaces due to hard water can be difficult to remove. If you’re looking for a way to get rid of limescale permanently, then you’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we’ll discuss the best methods for removing limescale and preventing it from coming back.

What is Limescale?

Hard water contains high levels of calcium and magnesium, which create a mineral residue that sticks to surfaces and can be difficult to remove. Limescale can form on sinks, taps, showers, toilets, and other surfaces in your home, as well as on heating elements, for example in your kettle.

How to Remove Limescale

The first step in getting rid of limescale is to remove as much of it as possible from the surface. This can often be done by using a scrubbing brush or an abrasive cleaner such as vinegar or baking soda and a bit of elbow grease. For tougher deposits, you may need to use a chemical cleaner such as Viakal. 

Preventing Future Build-up

Once you’ve removed the existing limescale from your home, it’s important to take steps to prevent future build-up. The best way to do this is by installing a water softener or water conditioner in your home. The two solutions work in very different ways. You can read more about the differences in our blog post on the topic here.

While water softeners are the traditional limescale-prevention method, they use salts and expel briny effluent into the watercourse. So, if you’re looking for a sustainable, eco-friendly solution then a water conditioner may be a better solution for your needs.
