We are thinking about finishing our basement. The house was built in 1991 with a poured concrete foundation. We have never had water issues but there are some small areas that show efflorescence on the walls. Does this need to be addressed?

Hey Lisa,

I'd love to help with your question! Would you be able to post some pictures of the areas with efflorescence?
