It is always possible to do repairs, increase protection, and other measures to extend your floors life.

If you know to look out for these signs, this can save you extra injuries and costs. These warning signs are things everyone should know, but it is especially important for commercial spaces.


Moisture Mitigation Vs Moisture tolerant Adhesives:

It is a very common mistake people make when it comes to mositure protection, people often think that mositure mitigation systems and moisture tolerant adhesives have the same job. Repeatedly moisture related floor covering systems continue to fail at an unacceptable rate. Moisture issues are not just limited to slab on-ground construction but can also occur when floor coverings are installed over suspended concrete slabs as well. When moisture issues occur, it is serious and will affect all parties and can become very costly. Modern test methods were invented to prevent distress and failure by testing the concrete’s dryness before any floor coverings or coatings installed over the substrate. Concrete in-situ relative humidity testing has become the most popular method to use in the United States and is the most accurate when it comes to testing the concretes dryness. It also is the most overlooked part of construction; people don’t want to spend the money or just don’t have the knowledge and history of testing concrete slabs.
