Efflorescence on Masonry

Clean salt deposits

What is efflorescence

Efflorescence is a crystalline deposit of salts often seen on the surface of concrete, brick, stucco, or natural stone surfaces. It occurs when water is present on or in the masonry surface. It sparkles. It’s white, sometimes with a grayish tint.

How do I stop it?

These deposits, which are often a byproduct of the manufacturing process, are carried to the surface by water within the masonry.  AC-3 Cleaner removes efflorescence from masonry without the use of Muriatic Acid.  Sealing the masonry surface with one of our sealers will prevent water from entering and carrying more salts and minerals to the surface.
