Are your pavers covered in a whitish cloud all of a sudden? The white substance destroying the appearance of your pavers is called efflorescence.

Water (condensation or rain) causes soluble salts to migrate to the surface of pavers, which is efflorescence. Efflorescence is also known as calcium hydroxide or free lime. We recommend you hire a professional pressure washing company to do a low-pressure wash. You should always hire a professional to ensure you don’t damage your pavers.

Natural efflorescence does not necessarily damage your pavers; but it does gives them an unsightly appearance. It takes a long time to disappear on its own over time, but if you want your pavers to retain their bright colors, contact Naples Pressure Washing & Paver Sealing today.
