What are Water Spots?
Water spots occur when the minerals in "hard" water (named so because it contains those hard minerals), namely calcium, limestone and magnesium harden and leave deposits on glass, cars, windows, and other surfaces.
The trouble with hard water stains is that they build upon each other over time, leading to more and more staining and corrosion in the long-term. To avoid replacement of window glass and costly repairs, it's best to have routine water spot removal performed by professionals.
It's possible to clean hard water stains with home solutions, but often times the stains aren't noticeable until they are heavily built up and highly visible. More than 80% of the water coming from sinks, faucets, and hoses in the US is hard water, including in Hawaii. Particularly in Hawaii, where the humidity can keep moisture in the air for long periods of time, water spots are more likely to accumulate quickly thanks to sitting longer.
Hard Water Damage
Hard water deposits don't just damage pipes over time, they can also damage window glass, jalousies, and window panes. Unfortunately, when hard water deposits are severe enough, the glass is nearly impossible to restore. Being proactive and frequently cleaning water spots will help avoid these costly problems.
