Efflorescence Causes and Solutions

Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry is proud to say that we offer efflorescence repair and removal for our service area. Efflorescence is a product of salts that come from the earth. Water in the soil carries these salts towards the surface and through the porous concrete or masonry that may surround your property. It lays on the surface of your concrete and masonry and when the water that carried it evaporates, it leaves behind a white, crusty material that takes away from the appearance of any concrete or masonry, whether it be a sidewalk, driveway, or building. You’ve probably seen it on older brick buildings and noticed that it looked unsightly and detracted from the beauty of the home or building.

Efflorescence is mostly a calcium deposit that is left behind, but it may show signs of poor quality concrete or masonry. While efflorescence is not uncommon, it is not completely harmless. We highly suggest that you at least have a professional from Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry come look at it so that they can help you decide how to proceed. This process is usually seasonal, happening more in the late winter and early spring. Luckily, efflorescence is an eyesore that can be repaired and removed.
