How to remove calcium deposits

Removing calcium deposits and other minerals can be done with these easy tips.

Hard water can be high in calcium, magnesium, silica and other minerals. Hard water increases films and stains from soaps, minerals, and other substances. Bathroom fixtures, sinks, dishes, and other surfaces need more frequent cleaning from calcium deposits and other minerals. Even Hot water heaters need periodic draining suggested twice a year to eliminate calcium deposits and sediment build up.

Drain Hot Water Heater

As sediment builds up inside hot water heater it can reduce the efficiency of the heating element. Use the valve on the side of your hot water heater to drain it twice a year and this will eliminate calcium deposits and sediment build up. You can also contact a licensed contractor such as DeMark Home Ontario to perform this job.

Soak the Faucet in Vinegar

Pour some warm vinegar into a plastic sandwich bag, and wrap it around the faucet so that the areas with mineral deposits are submerged in the vinegar. Secure the bag with a rubber band, and allow the faucet to soak for an hour. This will help to remove calcium deposits and other build ups.

Remove Calcium Deposits from a Shower head

You may also notice hard-water deposits on your showerhead. To get rid of them, soak the showerhead in warm vinegar for an hour or two, and then use a toothbrush to remove the loosened deposits. Use a toothpick to dislodge deposits from the spray holes. Your showerhead will look and function like new! 

Clearing Other Mineral Deposits in Bathrooms and Kitchens

The same hard water that clogs up your showerhead can leave off-white or brown spots on glass or ceramic surfaces, particularly in bathrooms and kitchens. Sinks, tubs, and glass shower walls and doors are all common places for mineral deposits to collect. Rinsing the area with a mix of half vinegar, half water will eliminate such spots. Wipe it away with a soft cloth.

Benefits of Cleaning with Vinegar

It is all natural; there are no harsh chemicals or fumes and it won’t cost you anything, just couple of dollars. You can even use it to clean children’s bedrooms and bathrooms with no additional concerns.
