What Causes Water Stains

Many customers ask us the same question. The questions and concerns are water stains in bathrooms. They wonder what causes the stains and is there an easy way to stop the water stains.

Those chemicals are absorbed by the water before entering the home. Hard water makes it extremely difficult for tile cleansers or tub cleansers to work effectively.

Thus, reducing the products, and the cleansing power. Furthermore, hard water is responsible for causing mineral build-up in pipes, sinks, tubs, toilets, and even on tile. Therefore, it takes an extra strong product to remove those water stains.
