It is caused by multiple of factors acting together and in most cases catalysed by environmental conditions. It’s the migration of soluble salts from the grout to the surface. When these come in contact with the air they react with carbon dioxide and form a white salt.
Cracked or damaged grout can greatly increase the built up of efflorescence. When grout joints have cracks on them, water enters below, when the water tries to escape back up through the grout joints efflorescence is formed. The longer this remains untreated, the more salt will build up.
If detected in very early stages, removal can be simplified and return minimised. As soon as thin white lines start to appear along the edges of grout joints – this is a sign of efflorescence starting.

Hi Total Stone Team, thank you very very much for the service and the professionalism that you gave us. Not knowing anything about natural stone and buying a penthouse unit with natural stone throughout, we were so happy that you were there to guide us though the pitfalls. Thank you so much for all your help, not only with our limestone floors but also with our travertine dining table.Mike Bowen, Customer
