Efflorescence Removal – Alexandria, VA
Is your brick masonry, stone, or concrete showing white, powdery streaks?
If your brick, concrete, or stone surfaces are showing a white, sometimes powdery, streaking, this is known as efflorescence. Efflorescence forms on surfaces when moisture within the substrate migrates to the surface, bringing along embedded salts and minerals. When the moisture evaporates, the minerals and salts are left behind, leaving white marks on the surface.
Efflorescence removal can be tricky.
Efflorescence removal can be a multi-step process that happens over time. The initial removal takes away all of the surface debris from your brick or concrete, but because efflorescence is the result of internal moisture migrating to the surface, there may still be moisture present within the substrate. Because of this, it’s not unusual for the white streaking to reappear within weeks or months after cleaning. If efflorescence is left on the surface for an extended time, it will continue to build up and can become hard, thick, and calcified. These types of calcifications can be difficult to remove and are best left to professionals.
