We know the source of moisture and it has been addressed. I'm trying to determine if efflorescence should be cleaned up off the dirt.
To answer the questions asked though:
No vaper barrier. The house is in a dry, sunny area of southern california. The yards of the house have been redesigned so they use no water. Fans are being installed on
Yes there are gutters and they drop water 3 feet away from foundation.
Grade slopes towards foundation which is why we redid the yards so we use no water outside of the house.

Is there a 6 mil plastic vaper barrier on the ground?
Does the grade outside slope away from the foundation?
Not going to do any good cleaning it off if you do not water proof the foundation on the outside.
