In Pursuit of Curb Appeal

Most people spend their time dreaming up ways to improve the insides of their home. They renovate their kitchens, install new flooring, and paint the walls in vibrant colors. As far as I am concerned, however, the outside of the home is just as vital. After working for years as a landscape architect, I'm passionate about the form and function of yards, porches, decks, gardens, and other outdoor spaces. An inviting exterior welcomes guests to my home and encourages them to enjoy themselves. I decided to create a blog that would extol the virtues of curb appeal—and maybe inspire you to take your homemaking efforts outside.

Why A Water Filtration Would Be A Good Addition To Your Home

If you have found yourself on the fence when it comes to adding a water filtration system in your home, you will want to keep reading. The more you read, the easier it will be for you to see why this type of system would be such a beneficial thing to have set up. Here are some of those benefits.

Your Clothes Will Last Longer

Think about all of the money that you spend on clothing and how long they last. It would be great if you could do something to help make them last longer. Well, with the addition of a water filtration system in your home, this is easily done. Your clothes, towels, blankets, and anything else made of fabric that is thrown in the washer will last longer because the harsh minerals are removed from the water. Those hard minerals rub against the fabric fibers, causing them to break down a lot easier than they would if they were being washed in soft water.

You Have Water You Can Safely Drink

With the water filtration system in place, you will not have to worry as much about drinking toxins that you do not want in your body. The filtration system removes those. This means you will not have to buy bottles or gallons of water at the store anymore. You will be able to drink the water that comes right into the kitchen sink tap. This is not only going to be much more convenient for everyone, but it is going to save you a lot of money as well.

You Won't Have Any More Water Spots On Your Clean Dishes

If you have been struggling with cleaning water spots off of you clean dishes, you are in luck. Once you have a filtration system installed that will send clean, soft water throughout your home, this will no longer be easy for you. Your dishes will be sparkling clean once they are done drying.

It is best to purchase your water filtration system from a company that will be able to send in their own contractors to install it. This way, you will know that the contractors working on the installation project are well versed on the ins and outs of the particular water filtration unit you have purchased. They will also be able to provide you with a few tips regarding the unit, such as how often you will need to have it serviced.
