I too had a brick Chicago Bungalow. you'll
usually see it up by the soffits and in the basement
where the bricks meet the poured foundation. We
used to use a week muriatic acid solution to
neutralize the alkoids (sic) Be careful with any acid.
most masons in the area are quite familiar with the
problem.
