Limitations: Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover can be used on the following masonry surfaces: brick, masonry, limestone, sandstone, flagstone, concrete pavers, travertine and most other masonry surfaces after testing is done.  Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover should be used in temperatures between 40° and 95° Fahrenheit.  Not recommended for the use on copper, zinc, aluminum, drywall, plywood, wood surfaces, gypsum, veneer, and most plastics.


Test Patch:  Always prepare a test area on each type of surface. Testing before beginning the project is the best way to ensure product suitability and efficacy. This will also teach the user how to handle the product, gauge how to apply, and, determine how long it must remain in place (dwell time) before removing. Applying incorrectly, or, removing too quickly, may result in the need for more than one application, increasing your labor and material costs.


Recommended Substrates: Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover can be used on the following masonry surfaces: brick, masonry, limestone, sandstone, flagstone, concrete pavers, travertine and most other non-polished masonry surfaces after testing is done. 


Preparation:  Cover and protect areas where cleaning is not desired, including adjoining surfaces where overspray may travel; keep protection in place during removal process. Polyethylene plastic and masking tape create an effective barrier. Nearby plants and other foliage should be covered during application and removal.  On hot and humid days, or when working in direct sunlight, dampen the surfaces with water prior to applying Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover to keep the product from evaporating too quickly.


Surface and Air Temperatures:  To avoid product from freezing and reducing effectiveness do not use below 40° degrees Fahrenheit. For best results, use product in temperatures above 50° degrees Fahrenheit and below 90° degrees Fahrenheit. Product effectiveness is increased in warmer temperatures.


Application & Spread Rate:   Apply Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover with a pump-up sprayer or trigger spray bottle. It is important to apply bottom to top to avoid any streaking. Leave on for a minimum of 15 – 30 minutes or the time determined during testing, depending on the contaminants present agitate with a nylon bristle brush if necessary.  Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover provides an average spread rate of about 200 - 250 sq. ft. per gallon; results may vary.  Dumond Chemicals recommends working in smaller manageable areas that can be rinsed before the product can dry to the surface.


Spray Application:  Low pressure sprayer or garden sprayer recommended.         


Removal & Clean Up:  Remove Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover by either high pressure washing, a minimum of 1500 PSI, or using a scrub brush to agitate the surface then rinsing with a hose. Thoroughly wash the surface, from top to bottom again to avoid any streaking, until the foaming action stops to remove all remaining product. Before beginning, especially when power washing, use polyethylene plastic to protect adjacent surfaces from splash back and run down.  Collect material removed and dispose of in compliance with Federal, State and local regulations. Allow surface to dry completely before re-coating. Rinse with water from top to bottom again to avoid any streaking. All masonry building materials contain natural salts. These salts remain trapped within masonry in solid form until they are dissolved into water. When dissolved in water, it usually makes its way out of the material through small pores. The water can originate from rain, sprinklers, household leaks, or any number of other places. In the winter, the heat in the building will move outward and drive this moisture in front of it. When the water/salt solution reaches the exterior wall surface the cold, dry air will evaporate the water, leaving the salt as a white crystalline growth on the surface.  Efflorescence typically forms during cold, dry weather which is when masonry buildings do their drying out.  It can occur year-round, but it is most likely to form during the winter due to low temperatures. 


Best Practices:  Always test patch each type of surface for efficacy and dwell times.



  • Always test patch each type of surface for efficacy and dwell times.

  • Always apply Safe n Easy® Efflorescence Remover from bottom to top and rinse from top to bottom to avoid streaking.

  • Do not work in large areas and allow product to dry to the surface before you can rinse it off.
