Salt stained brick sidewalks

In early January several local blogs picked up Rob Goodspeed’s posting on how brick sidewalks are more slippery when wet than concrete pavers. I’ve also noticed that many of our area red brick sidewalks have lasting salt stains since the snow on January 27th.

Are these discolored bricks an issue of property management companies using a type of salt not suited for brick? Or is it just a lack of realization that the bricks must be cleaned after a salting?

    I noticed the same problem up in Friendship Heights near the new Bloomingdales. They probably just don’t know better.
