You may think that you can use the same kind of hard water stain remover for the stains formed on your sealed or unsealed tile, glass or any other hard surface, but the fact is quite different. Every surface has a different structure and every stain remover product has a different composition. In this article, we shall throw light on suitable hard water stain removers for different kinds of surfaces.
But before we begin, let us understand more about hard water stains.
Hard water stains are whitish deposits of calcium and minerals left over on the surface once the water evaporates. These mineral elements are found in hard water. Some regions get hard water and this hard water flows in the taps. When the water evaporates, it leaves behind hard water stains. These look ugly and make your tile and glass look unmaintained. Regardless of how hard you try to remove them, they come back with the next use.
We will now discuss some efficient hard water stain removers for different kinds of surfaces.
If you are wondering how to remove hard water stains from tile in showers, walls, floorings and countertops, then you must have come across many home remedies for cleaning using baking soda and other such products. These products are not good enough for unsealed surfaces, as they only remove the stains from the top level. Only a heavy-duty deep-penetrating cleaner can seep into the pores and eliminate all the stains at the root level. Such a cleaner not only removes the deep-etched stains but also removes them at the root level, rendering a highly sanitized and fresh surface.
The best hard water stain remover for unsealed tile is Imperia Deep Clean. It is a deep-penetrating robust cleaner that enters into the pores of unsealed tile surface and removes the hidden stains at the root level. It also reveals a sparkling clean surface without causing any etching.
Sealed tile on your walls, countertops, floorings or showers have a layer of water-resistant sealant on them to protect them from moisture absorption. If you have superfluous stains on such sealed surfaces, you can remove them using high-quality maintenance products, that are combinations of cleaners and sealers.
To remove superfluous hard water stains from sealed tile surface, It is recommended to use Imperia Maintenance or Valore Maintenance. These are both maintenance cleaners, combinations of cleaners and sealers that can be used for your weekly and daily maintenance tasks. Of the two maintenance cleaners, Valore is infused with 6.97% H2O2 at the molecular level and is stronger. Cleaning sealed tile with Valore Maintenance or Imperia Maintenance will remove all the hard water stains and give you a sparkling surface.
Cultured marble is generally used in kitchen countertops, tubs and sinks. A cast polymer such as cultured marble needs a proper cultured-marble approved hard water stain remover to get rid of the hard water stains. We recommend you to avoid using abrasive scrubs and acidic bathtub stain removers for cleaning the surface.

Sealed cultured marble surfaces that are sealed with a top coat to make them water-resistant, also tend to develop superfluous stains. These can be removed using maintenance products.
You can use either of the two maintenance products – Imperia Maintenance or Valore Maintenance for cleaning sealed cultured marble surfaces.
If you are wondering which is the best water spot remover for glass surfaces, then there are many options available in the market to confuse you. Home remedies like baking soda and vinegar are common options as well. But these products are not very efficient and they may also lead to etching. You need a heavy-duty hard water stain remover, which is also shower glass approved. Shower glass approved products do not harm the surface and yet remove the stains efficiently. Such a glass approved cleaner not only removes the deep-etched stains but renders a slight sheen.
Benaz is the best hard water stain remover from glass surfaces. It thoroughly and efficiently cleans the stains and reveals a sparkling glass surface beneath. Low-quality products are ineffective over etching. Acidic cleaners also destroy the glass surface. Benaz delivers a sparkling clarity to your shower glass door without damaging the sheen of the surface.
If you have sealed your glass shower doors, you need not worry about hard water stains.Sealed glass surfaces will have hard water stains rarely, as such surfaces make the water sheet-off the glass.

Hence, you need to use different types of hard water stain removers on different kinds of surfaces. Do not use a single product for all the hard surfaces in your house, as this will not bring satisfactory results.
