Covers drain. Starts growing over tile. Ruins shower.
Efflorescence ruins the shower.
Efflorescence impacts on all cement materials badly. Migration of soluble salts, which originates from masonry, gives birth of efflorescence. It takes place on the surface and clogs the drain. Efflorescence can crack your tile and grout as well. Repair Cracked Tile>
The beginning of the end.
Before performing the shower efflorescence removal service in Brooklyn, we clean the shower drain properly by removing the cover. After completing this step, we move to the tile and grout lines to clean them by scraping all the bulk efflorescence.
Removing efflorescence chemically.
We perform the shower efflorescence removal service in Brooklyn with the best chemical, Zido from pFOkUS®. When this chemical contact the efflorescence, it starts reacting instantly. It goes beneath the shower tile and grout to attack the efflorescence taking place. The efflorescence will neutralize the Zido making it safer for the environment.
Sealing. Preventing. Protecting.
We only believe in Sentura to replace the caulk and to restore the missing grout. Then, we apply Caponi® (a two part solvent titanium pigmented sealer) to keep the tile and grout safe from any damage for a long time.
How efflorescence grows in shower.
This diagram, displays how your shower is constructed when you have efflorescence issues or in some cases mold problems. The top of the mud bed (concrete) is not protected with a waterproofing membrane. Underneath the mud bed there is no pre-slope. Without either of these steps, water will not drain to the weep holes and the mud bed will not dry out. If caulk is used around the perimeter it will mildew fast and even pull away with ease. To rectify the issue we have to stop the water from passing through the grout and the corners where the caulk was applied.

Questions about efflorescence?
Here are our answers.
A white substance is taking place on my grout and tile, is it efflorescence?
Yes. It may look same as whitish grout, taking place in your grout and on top of your tile.
Why does efflorescence grow on my shower floor?
Most tile and grout in showers are not installed correctly, which allows water to dwell within the tile and feed the minerals in the concrete mud bed. The minerals take place in your shower drain through the weep holes.
Can efflorescence issue be rectified?
Of course. Our transcendent products from pFOkUS® will not peel overtime. We create a waterproof shower by filling the corners with Sentura and sealing the grout with Caponi®.
I hired two companies, but they were not giving guarantee to their process, why?
We have an exclusive deal with pFOkUS®, which allows us to use the cleaners and sealers while performing the shower efflorescence removal service in Brooklyn. Every contractor uses cheap and simple products from big box stores. We know very well that these types of products never work.
