How to Know if Your Home in Nashville, TN Needs a Water Softener

If you’re a homeowner in Nashville, Tennessee, Water Softener Nashville TN you’ve probably heard conversations about water softener systems and the effects of hard water on your possessions and appliances. From the conversations you’ve heard, you’re probably thinking one of two things: how do I know if I need a water softener and is it really necessary? You’re not alone in your questions. At American Home Design, we believe in providing our customers with the information they need to make the best decisions for their homes and families. Take a moment to read through some signs that may indicate you need a water softener system in your home, and contact us with any questions you may have.

American Home Design offers the industry-leading water conditioner systems from RainSoft. Their water softener systems work to “soften” your hard water by removing calcium and magnesium that’s naturally found in the water. If you’re not sure if the water in your Nashville home is considered “hard” or not, read through a few of these tell-tale signs that you have hard water.

  1. You notice water spots on your “clean” dishes — Hard water can cause spotting on dishes in two different ways. First, when hard water is left to dry on dishes, it evaporates and leaves the hard minerals behind. Second, hard water in your dishwasher causes soaps to gel with the water instead of dissolve fully, which reduces the effectiveness of the detergent and leaves your dishes with spots where the water and soap combined instead of rinsed off.
  1. Your cotton clothes feel stiff after being washed — A water softener can remove minerals like calcium and magnesium to help prevent the laundry detergent from combining with the water instead of dissolving. This soap-and-hard-water gel can harden your fabrics and even make your clothes feel itchy.
  1. Chronic drainage problems — Over time, the water and soap curds formed by the hard minerals in your water can cause shower and sink drainage problems.
  1. Chlorine or sulfur smell — Sometimes the water coming through your pipes can have a distinct odor or smell, such as chlorine or sulfur (rotting egg smell), which can signify other unwanted additives in your water. American Home Design can help you get rid of those, too.

To learn more about how a water softener system may be able to help improve the water quality in your Nashville, TN home, contact American Home Design today. We can schedule a convenient appointment to test your water for hardness and other contaminants.
