What Is Efflorescence?

It is the formation of salt deposits on or near the surface of the tile or concrete. It can also be described as the white powder or crusty deposit which appears on the surface of the joint or the edge of the tile. Usually white, it does change the visual appearance of the surface. Other than discolouration, efflorescence is usually harmless. In some very porous tiles, deposits can appear on the tile itself.

This is simply a combination of salts that are pushed to the surface by water movement in the concrete mixture. Concrete is porous and this allows for water to evaporate and in the process, salts that are in the mixture are left clinging to the surface. Where the separation of building components occurs, efflorescence can lead to spalling, one of the main issues.

Have you ever noticed white-grey staining that seems to appear from nowhere on walls, floors, or building materials such as brick, masonry, stone, or concrete? That’s efflorescence; crystalline salt deposits that are left behind when water evaporates from the material’s surface. Low temperatures, moist conditions, condensation, rain, dew, groundwater, and added water to aid in cement trowelling can all contribute to efflorescence.

Common Signs That Depict Your Tiles Need Efflorescence Cleaning

If you are not able to know when the efflorescence removal is needed then you must check these signs as a warning.

  • A Different Colour Of Brick- Both washroom bricks and kitchen bricks (bricks used for aesthetics, not structure) contain clay and clay contains highly soluble salts. Clay can also react with calcium sulphate (a common salt source in brick) which will result in efflorescence.
  • Patches- Sometimes you notice patches occurring on the bathroom floor, the shower floor, or both. These are because of the presence of efflorescence.
  • Increased Grout Buildup- Have you noticed a white deposit appearing on the surface of grout in your home or business area? Do not panic, it is efflorescence. It is not harmful but can spoil the appearance of your tiles and you find the tiles becoming hard surfaces.
  • A Deeper Colour- If it is accentuated against a dark background, such as the grout joints, it appears in darker colours. In reality, this dark-coloured efflorescence may be found in everything made of cement and is not simply limited to grout.
  • Appearance Like Cloudy Powder- If you found traces of whitish powder on tiles, bricks, stones or cement products then take it as a warning sign of efflorescence. It is a clear sign that your tiles are affected by efflorescence.

What Makes Efflorescence A Problem?
