Remove Efflorescence

Remove efflorescence, the ugly white (efflorescence) stuff that forms on your concrete or brick surfaces after rain or flooding, with hypochlorous acid (HOCl)!

Efflorescence arises when water-soluble salts migrate to the surface of porous materials like concrete, brick, or stucco. This usually happens after rainstorms or flooding. A challenge for homeowners, during rainy months, this white, powdery substance can mar concrete surfaces.

Scrubbing with bleach or other types of chemicals is always a tedious and unhealthy choice. HOCl offers a safe and efficient remedy for this issue!

A fantastic, low-cost, environmentally-friendly and all-natural solution, HOCl can restore concrete surfaces to their original condition with ease. HOCl, or hypochlorous acid, is a natural cleaning agent that breaks down and removes organic and inorganic substances. When applied to efflorescence, HOCl penetrates deep into the pores of the surfaces to dissolve salt deposits.

Follow these steps to safely remove efflorescence with HOCl

  1. Prepare a solution of 500ppm HOCl by diluting it with water. A ratio of 1 part HOCl to 3 parts water.
  2. Spray the HOCl solution directly onto the affected areas of concrete using a spray bottle or sponge.
  3. Allow the solution to sit on the surface for several minutes to allow it time to break down the efflorescence.
  4. Scrub the surface with a brush or sponge to help loosen any remaining deposits if necessary.
  5. Rinse the area thoroughly with clean water to remove any residue left behind by the HOCl solution.
  6. Repeat as necessary until the efflorescence is completely removed.

By using HOCl to erase efflorescence, you can safely restore the appearance of concrete and brick surfaces without chemicals.

Regular maintenance with HOCl can help prevent future buildup of efflorescence, keeping your home looking clean and well-maintained year-round.
