The dreaded plague of all concrete products! Worry no more. Efflorescence is a natural part of the concrete curing process. It may seem that this is just a big fancy word for, I just spent a lot of money and I most certainly didn’t pay for this! But really it’s just a fancy part of chemistry.
Although not always seen, ALL concrete products will give off this efflorescence. Lime/salt deposits in the concrete mix work their way to the surface of the concrete product and fade away over time. Good news is that the integrity of your product is not harmed in any way; although unsightly your investment was worth it and will look beautiful once this natural process is over.
