Efflorescence on block wall from leak

Recently on a home inspection in Middletown I discovered mineral deposits (effloresence) on the rear block wall in the garage. It was on no other sections. I thought this strange. I went inside and found a burst pipe in the laundry room. The water had since been shut off and the area cleaned up.

I pulled back carpets on the slab to determine if there were signs of mold. There were none. Who ever cleaned it up did a good job. I thought the carpets should still be replaced though. They were 10 years old and stained.
