Efflorescence is a common occurrence that occurs when salt deposits form on or near the surface tile or
concrete floors. You may have seen white powder or crusty material collecting on your tiles. That’s
Efflorescence. It’s usually white in colour and will tend to alter the visual appearance of the surface.
Efflorescence is not harmful to health, though it is unattractive. In some very porous tiles, the deposits
can appear on the tile itself. Efflorescence is caused by a multitude of factors that come together based
on environment. It starts when soluble salts move from the grout to the surface. These salts interact
with carbon dioxide and form a white salt that we call efflorescence.
