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.
