Removing Efflorescence

21 Jan2015

Efflorescence Washington, D.C.Have you ever noticed some powdery, white stains on the concrete of your building, sidewalks, or parking garages?  When soluble salts and other water dispersible materials come to the surface of concrete, you will notice efflorescence. Unfortunately, this time of year with low temperatures and moist conditions, induces the efflorescence you see on your concrete.

Efflorescence typically is more noticeable on darker colored concrete compared to white or light gray. The contrast of white and dark colors will enable you to see the efflorescence more than usual. As we know, curb appeal in the Montgomery County, Metropolitan DC, and Northern Virginia area is important when attracting and retaining customers. With unattractive stains, likely caused by efflorescence, your building’s curb appeal is reduced.

If you keep your building’s concrete clean, you will not only increase curb appeal, but maintenance will be a lot easier, as well. Our team of professionals at KEVCO Building Services, Inc. can handle any kind of stains such as efflorescence, spray paint, mold, or any other types of stains.
