How to Tell if Moisture is Damaging Your Floor

Mois­ture issues are often the cause of the con­crete dam­age we see when eval­u­at­ing and pro­vid­ing esti­mates for our clients. With­out a prop­er con­crete mois­ture bar­ri­er, con­crete slabs can devel­op expen­sive prob­lems. A mois­ture prob­lem in your floor­ing will spell dis­as­ter if not addressed prop­er­ly and swiftly.

The com­mer­cial floor­ing pro­fes­sion­als at Kaloutas’s indus­tri­al floor­ing divi­sion are skilled at mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion as well as repair­ing and remov­ing dam­aged con­crete across the East­ern Seabord. Read on to learn more about what to look for when eval­u­at­ing your floors for mois­ture damage.

Signs You Have a Mois­ture Vapor Problem

Con­crete doesn’t talk, but the sur­face of your con­crete floors can tell you a lot about what is going on beneath the sur­face. Water is a crit­i­cal part of pour­ing con­crete, but if the slab has high mois­ture vapor and your floors are sealed, that mois­ture has to go some­where. As it tries to escape through the sur­face, it can cause obvi­ous dam­age to your coat­ings and delam­i­na­tion of your tiles.

Some of the signs of mois­ture issues include bub­bling, crack­ing, loose tiles, dis­col­oration and an oily brown liq­uid. The soon­er you address these issues, the eas­i­er it will be to reg­u­late the vapor in your con­crete and pre­serve and pro­tect your floors with a con­crete mois­ture bar­ri­er.
