Moisture is both one of concrete’s best friends as well as its biggest enemy. There always needs to be a certain amount to keep the concrete slab stable, but if too much moisture seeps in, it can result in thousands of dollars in damage. Moisture can cause corrosion, mold, mildew, as well as warped floorboards, peeling paint, or loose linoleum.
The added disruption of having to cease business operations to remove and replace flooring compounds the problem; this can be up to five time more expensive than doing it correctly the first time. Therefore, moisture mitigation is of paramount importance, especially when thinking about installing new hardwood floors or tile in a home or business.
One of the biggest problems we’ve come across over the years is that many other contractors think that simply using a moisture-resistant glue is all they need. The reality is, when high levels of moisture are present as they are here in Orlando, it is always necessary to grind and prep to the bare concrete first. Then, a separate layer of moisture mitigation must be applied before any additional flooring.
