Efflorescence: Understanding the Two Types and Preventing Their Formation
Efflorescence, the white powdery substance that can appear on the surface of masonry materials like brick, concrete, and stone, can be a frustrating issue for homeowners and building owners. It's important to understand the difference between primary and secondary efflorescence, as well as how to prevent and remove it.
During the curing process of newly installed masonry materials, excess water and salts within the material can come to the surface and evaporate, leaving behind white deposits known as primary efflorescence. This type of efflorescence is common in newly installed materials and typically disappears on its own after a few months as the material continues to cure.
On the other hand, secondary efflorescence occurs after the masonry materials have fully cured and is caused by ongoing water exposure. Water penetrates the surface of the masonry material, dissolves the salts within, and the dissolved salts rise to the surface and evaporate, leaving behind the white deposits.
This type of efflorescence can be more difficult to remove and may require specialized cleaners or professional services.
Causes of Secondary Efflorescence
There are several factors that contribute to the formation of secondary efflorescence, including improper installation of masonry materials, poor drainage, improper flashing and sealing, inadequate gutters and downspouts, and overwatering of landscaping near the masonry materials.
Preventing Secondary Efflorescence
To prevent the formation of secondary efflorescence, it's important to address these causes. This can include proper installation and maintenance of drainage systems, proper sealing and flashing, installing and maintaining gutters and downspouts, proper watering of landscaping, and regular cleaning and maintenance of the masonry materials.
Using Efflorescence Remover
If secondary efflorescence has formed, it can be removed through specialized cleaners or professional services. When using efflorescence remover (Efflo-Go), it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and test the cleaners on a small area first.
In some cases, pressure washing or sandblasting may be necessary, but these methods should only be performed by professionals as they can be damaging to the masonry materials.
Efflorescence can be a challenge for those with masonry surfaces, but by understanding the difference between primary and secondary efflorescence and taking the necessary steps to prevent and remove it, you can maintain the beauty and longevity of your masonry materials for years to come.
