How Do I Remove Calcium Buildup on a Faucet?

If your faucets have a cloudy look to them, it’s probably because they’ve been stained by your tap water. Especially if you have hard water, minerals are going to collect around your appliances over time. The scummy and scaly deposits that result is calcium buildup is harmless but look pretty nasty. Follow this helpful guide for getting rid of calcium buildup, and contact our Simi Valley plumbers at Dutton Plumbing for faucet repair and more.

4 Ways to Remove Calcium Buildup

  1. With Chemicals: Wipe down the affected faucet with a wet cloth and all-purpose cleaner. Dish detergent will also work in a pinch. Make sure to focus on scrubbing under and in back of the fixture in particular, and anywhere else water tends to accumulate. Rinse the sink and wipe any remaining residue dry when you’re done.
  2. With Lime: Wipe calcium buildup with a lemon wedge. The citric acid will help dissolve the calcium minerals sticking to chrome, copper, or brass. Rinse the sink out and dry the faucet.
  3. With Vinnegar: Wrap a bag or cloth covered in vinegar around your faucet. Keep it there for several hours and wipe down the surface when you’re done. Vinegar and baking soda can also be combined to make a paste for scrubbing calcium deposits.
  4. By Removing the Aerator: The aerator is the small filter on the edge of your faucet with the screen. Unscrew this piece and use a toothbrush or another small brush to scrub away calcium buildup from the inside, then place it in a bowl with vinegar for an hour and dry it before screwing it back on.
