Throughout my experience in the treatment of clay soils, there is a problem that we have encountered repeatedly.
There are homes where for some reason in waterproofing walls or similar fabric faltica have moisture seepage. Mostly this happens in areas near windows and balconies, most unprotected.
Other more extreme cases can be broken pipes or flooding.
In all cases, if we have a floor without treatment of any kind, humidity own anger evaporating to end up disappearing, although it is likely that we will leaving huge white patches of concentrated salt, which can not be accessed by found inside of the slabs.
In this case, the first thing to do once it is established that the internal moisture has evaporated completely, clean the entire surface is clay, with specific products anti saltpetre (http://www.tratamientosterracota.es/productos-limpieza-y-decapado/) to completely remove the entire interior salt accumulated.
Once clean and completely dry soil; and let us check that the salt has disappeared; must proceed to the application of a protective treatment (http://www.tratamientosterracota.es/productos-limpieza-y-tratarmiento-suelos/), which protects the soil from absorbing liquids and stains.
Another case in which we can find, is that the problem of soil moisture penetration, have implemented some form of previous protective treatment. In these cases, there is nothing before proceeding with the entire etching ground, for the full removal of the previous treatment and thus to open the pore full of clay soil and thus can access and cleaning products penetrate into the clay soil to remove accumulated salt. From here the further procedure is identical to the previous case; ie proceed with implementation of protective treatment.
Finally we can find cases where moisture leaks are almost impossible to solve; especially in old houses where the final solution of the problem would be a huge filtration hardly affordable cost.
In the latter case, the initial process of cleaning and removing salt is the same as those discussed above, also distinguishing whether the soil has no prior treatment or if you have it.
The differentiator here is that after applying the treatment, we recommend that it is the specific exterior floors; because the inner seal 100% to the mud floor, going to do that when they return to surface stains nitrate by continuous filtration of moisture; can not access these, having a layer of soil sealing.
However, the treatment of outer leaves a mud porosity of about 8-10%, when allowing nitrate stains appear, access to these for removal.
Keep in mind that the treatment abroad, has a high degree of stain protection, however, is not complete, so more caution must be taken in the case of soil treatment inside.
For example, in an indoor floor treatment, if we like a wine glass, we can clean without any problems, without leaving spots on the floor. However, in a soil treatment abroad, we should proceed to clean immediately to prevent the wine penetrates the mud and leave stains.
In this case we are dealing with an outer soil treatment by continuous filtration problematic moisture hardly solvable; It would be worth trying because then treated for outdoor use.
The reasons are twofold:
One is that the soil will have a high degree of protection against stain removals.
And two, is that when back to surface mildew by filtration, these are easily removable. Just would have to pour a bucket of water a good product chorreón anti saltpetre (http://www.tratamientosterracota.es/productos-limpieza-y-decapado/), and apply this mop to remove the salt. We must say that we use the mop is used exclusively for this task, since the anti saltpetre acid product has component can affect polished marble floors.
