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.

The Advantages of Polished Concrete:

Polished concrete is the new up and coming flooring trend that everyone should know about. It is preferred over epoxy flooring because of its impressive strength and beautiful clean look. Polished concrete is ideal for garages becuase it is resistant to most toxic chemicals and spills. It is also very sustainable because of its light reflectivity that is usually required in garages, so you do not need to invest in a ton of new lighting fixtures. Polished concrete is economical, attractive, and environmentally-friendly, which makes it one of the most up and coming flooring on the market.
