Hard water can create water damages in your home or business.  The calcium buildup in the plumbing can cause areas of the pipes to eventually clog up and water pressure increases in the pipes, at which time the pipe can burst, creating water damage throughout your home or business.  

Our tri-state area is known to have hard water.  Most homes and businesses in our area install a water softener to help extend the life of the plumbing and mitigate this hard water issue.  Water softeners help break down the high mineral content that creates calcium and magnesium carbonates buildup. 

If you are affected by water damage, don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Lake Havasu City/Bullhead City/Kingman.  Our SERVPRO team is more than qualified to mitigate the water damage and complete the proper drying needed to get you back to your everyday life. "Like it never even happened."
