Tile and Grout Haze Due To Efflorescence and Staining

Tile and Grout Cleaning For Stained Surfaces

Tile efflorescence is a common problem in many homes and buildings, particularly in areas with high humidity or moisture or new installation of tile or natural stone surfaces. Efflorescence occurs when water-soluble salts and other minerals in the grout or tile surface are drawn to the surface by moisture, forming a white, powdery residue. We often see efflorescence in new home construction or homes that recently installed new tile or stone floors. Efflorescence can also be caused by the residue left behind on the tile layers’ sponge or rag when they wipe excess grout from the grout lines smearing the salt and mineral deposit across the tile or stone’s surface.

While tile efflorescence is not harmful to your home’s structure or its occupants’ health, it can be unsightly and difficult to remove. In some cases, it can even cause damage to the tile surface or grout.
