Moisture Mitigation

Mois­ture-relat­ed floor­ing prob­lems are now esti­mat­ed to have reached the bil­lion-dol­lar lev­el annu­al­ly in the US! Over the long-term, a suc­cess­ful floor­ing instal­la­tion requires that the ground or oth­er sub-slab mois­ture be tak­en com­plete­ly out of play.

We encour­age you to have inde­pen­dent test­ing of your slab if you are not sure if you have an intact vapor-bar­ri­er under the slab.

For even more infor­ma­tion on Mois­ture Mit­i­ga­tion, check out our oth­er video!

WHAT CAN BE DONE IF THE CON­CRETE FLOOR HASHIGH MOIS­TURE LEVEL?

We are cer­ti­fied installers of sev­er­al mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion sys­tems.” These sys­tems either lim­it the amount of mois­ture vapor the floor­ing sys­tem will be exposed to, or com­plete­ly stop the vapor trans­mis­sion through the top of the slab. These sys­tems add to the cost of your instal­la­tion, how­ev­er they are essen­tial in a suc­cess­ful floor­ing instal­la­tion where high mois­ture is present. In the long run it is far less expen­sive to find the prob­lem and fix it up front than to have floor­ing fail­ures lat­er and have the high­er cost and dis­rup­tion to your oper­a­tions after a new floor has been installed. A sig­nif­i­cant addi­tion­al ben­e­fit to hav­ing a mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion sys­tem installed from a cer­ti­fied installer is that the man­u­fac­tur­ers of these sys­tems offer extend­ed war­ranties of up to 10 years for the vapor sys­tem and the floor­ing installed over it!

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SYMP­TOMS THAT YOUR INSTALLED FLOOR IS FAIL­ING DUE TOMOIS­TURE VAPOR TRANS­MIS­SION PROBLEM?

Symp­toms of high mois­ture vapor trans­mis­sion on an already installed floor may include bub­bles, blis­ters, pin­holes, a brown, oily liq­uid being lib­er­at­ed through the floor, and/​or delam­i­na­tion. The col­or is due to dis­solved or sus­pend­ed soil, rust and salts. Some­times, you will see delam­i­na­tion of a sec­tion of the floor. In this case, the bot­tom of the delam­i­nat­ed piece will be very smooth, and there will be traces of a white residue (efflo­res­cence) or rust (which the mois­ture has deliv­ered to the bot­tom of the coat­ing from the rebar/​reinforcing wire).

We install mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion sys­tems under our own epoxy floors and/​or we are hap­py to install these sys­tems for cov­er­ing with any type of floor­ing pro­vid­ed by oth­ers. Please feel free to con­tact us with any ques­tions or con­cerns regard­ing mois­ture prob­lems in flooring.
