What is efflorescence?
Efflorescence is a chemistry term stemming from French origin, meaning to “flower out”. It is a chemical process that occurs when salt migrates to a porous surface and begins to form a coating. Efflorescence more frequently occurs in bathrooms and balconies due to the fact that there are more moisture and water in the air. Our efflorescence removal service will get rid of the build up and make your tiles look great again.
How can you identify efflorescence on your tiles?
Though efflorescence can often be very similar to a simple stain in appearance, it can be easily identified. It looks like a powdery, white substance that can settle on both the tiles and between them, on the grouting.
Why is efflorescence a problem?
If efflorescence is left to its own devices, then it can very quickly become a problem. This is due to the fact that the salt, over time, will erode away both the tiles and the grouting. This can reduce the lifespan of the tiles and lead to them being replaced quicker than expected.
What do efflorescence removal and cleaning involve?
Although some of the time a simple scrubbing with soapy water and a stiff brush will remove the efflorescence, a lot of the time it won’t be enough. In addition to this, this method is not a preventative one, meaning that the efflorescence could quickly and vigorously return.
If done by a professional tile cleaning service, though, this isn’t the case. Tile Cleaning Solutions will inspect the case in order to determine the best removal technique. The techniques that may be considered include sandblasting, chemical removal, and power washing. What method is used is determined based on a number of factors, including the size of the problematic area, how long the efflorescence has been left unattended, and the material of the tiles/grouting that the efflorescence has spread on.
