Efflorescence. Clogging the drain. Taking place over the surface. Cracking the tile and grout. Our shower efflorescence removal service in Manhattan fixes all these issues with a 5 year labor warranty.
Efflorescence – a hard white substance caused by the migration of soluble salts, originating from the masonry. It damages all the cement based materials and if not taken care of, it can crack the tile and grout while clogging the shower drain. First, efflorescence covers the shower drain and then, grows throughout the entire tile and grout.
Repairing cracked tile & grout >
While performing the shower efflorescence removal service in Manhattan, our artists clean the shower drain and surface, eliminating all the bulk efflorescence. Our motto is to remove all the efflorescence permanently.
Shower cleaning with a chemical.
We have an entirely new way to get rid of the efflorescence issue with Zido – one of the most powerful cleaners designed by pFOkUS®. Zido eliminates efflorescence on the surface and then penetrates deep to attack the salts, removing it under the tile.
Preventing efflorescence growth.
We repair the missing grout and replace the caulk with Sentura – a two part pigmented flexible epoxy/resin. Then, we protect all the grout lines with Caponi® – a pigmented titanium sealer. Both of these products prevent the growth of efflorescence permanently, waterproofing the shower. Our shower efflorescence removal service in Manhattan ensures the sanitized tile and grout and also brings back the beauty of the shower.

Why efflorescence takes birth?
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. Efflorescence can crack the grout lines and tiles. Once we repair the crack, it’s highly recommended to seal the grout with Caponi® and all the corners with Sentura – which would waterproof the shower.
Questions about efflorescence?
Here are our answers.
What does efflorescence look like?
Efflorescence looks like a whitish grout, which occurs in your grout and on top of your tile.
Why does efflorescence grow on my shower floor?
Your shower has not been installed correctly and it is allowing water to dwell within the tile, feeding the minerals in the concrete mud bed. The minerals take birth in your shower drain via the weep holes. Then, it grows on your tile and grout.
Can efflorescence be removed?
Of course. Our patented shower efflorescence removal service in Manhattan is state-of-the-art and will eliminate efflorescence from the root. We also fill all the corners with Sentura and apply Caponi® to the grout lines, creating a waterproofed shower surface.
My shower drain is clogged with efflorescence, why?
Efflorescence grows through the drain weep holes beneath the tile and clogs the shower drain. We will eliminate this issue from the root.
Why is my cultured marble peeling, because a contractor had restored it?
You should post reviews for other people. Don’t be fooled by contractors delivering this service. There is not any tactic to rectify this issue because the entire pan will have to be stripped.
