Efflorescence: Causes and Solutions

Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry is proud to 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 leaves behind a white, crusty material that takes away from the appearance.

Efflorescence is mostly a calcium deposit that is left behind, but it may show signs of poor quality concrete or masonry. While these salt deposits are not uncommon, they are not completely harmless.

We highly suggest that you have a professional from Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry come look at it so that they can help you decide how to proceed. This efflorescence process is usually seasonal, happening more in the late winter and early spring.
