Product: "Efflorescence Treatment"


(a case = 4 gallons)
Grout Release

A severe case of efflorescence.
efflorescence, white powdery stains on brick

What "Efflorescence Treatment" does:

. It takes the white mineral efflorescence powder back below the surface.
. There is no clean off process. Just apply and let it work.
. Used by DIY and professional installers.

Why would you want to use "Efflorescence Treatment"?:

You want to use "Efflorescence Treatment" if:

. You are a contractor or Do It Yourselfer who realizes that the efficiency of using "Efflorescence Treatment" saves you a considerable amount of time (which is money).

. Efflorescence detracts from the beauty of the project. But, a large scale cleaning process is not desired.

. Pressure washing only drives more water below the surface than even rain would do. All that water will evaporate out and will carry the same and more minerals to the surface.

. You like the idea that this is a one step, no clean off, much easier solution than the alternatives.

. It is reassuring to you that Effloresence Treatment has been used successfully by hotels, commercial buildings, and homeowners for decades. It just works!

Do you have some of the white stains that reappear after Efflorescence Treatment dries? That is crystalline efflorescence and you need to remove it with "Grout Residue Remover".

How does "Efflorescence Treatment" work?
. It attaches to the powder and takes it below the surface again.
. It can be used on marble and limestone because it is not acidic.
. If efflorescence has repeat cycles of sprinkler or rain water upon it, it dissolves momentarily while more powder comes out. Enough of these cycles over time and the efflorescence powder can become crystalline. The crystals are tightly attached and cannot be moved by Efflorescence Treatment. The crystals portion must then be dissolved and removed by Aldon "Grout Residue Remover" .
. Here is a more complete description of efflorescence
. Efflorescence Treatment initially enhances natural surface colors. Then lightens up after a few days to where the surface is still somewhat more color enhanced than before. For more color enhancement on a permanent bases, see the Aldon sealers designated "color enhancing".

Concerned about Doing It Yourself or what your contractor says?
If you are concerned about doing it yourself - consider that the satisfaction of a project is directly related to YOUR knowledge of what needs to be done and how. Who actually does the work is less important. We estimate that 50% of the usage of Aldon products is by "do it yourself" homeowners and we know they are happy because we hear from them.

Our goal for our contractor customers - NO CALL BACKS. A good contractor will understand the logic of Aldon application instructions on the labels and will not take shortcuts. If a contractor does not agree, feel free to let us find out what is so unusual about this particular project so the contractor does not have to return.

Health & Safety:
When you read all the health and safety warnings on a label, you will see we have done our best to make you think about working with any chemicals from any manufacturer. Even household cleaners purchased in supermarkets (many with more hazardous ingredients than we use because they are less expensive for the manufacturer) should be used with common sense and awareness. People have been injured by not knowing you can create poisonous gases by mixing chlorine bleach with some cleaning products. One of the many criteria involved in Aldon products is that all our products will be used with any other of our products and no normal combination of usage events should be hazardous. Nevertheless, use common sense and don't be in a hurry. Let each step prove itself satisfactorily before proceeding to the next.

Some people are allergic or sensitive to some chemicals, especially petroleum solvents. In that case, evaluate our water based products. With the solvent type products, immediately as applied use proper cross ventilation fans blowing across the floor and out the doors and windows. Do not use any chemical products from any manufacturer in a house with the sick, elderly, pets, babies, or other concerns.
