Concrete Floor Moisture Mitigation Systems New Orleans
Liquid vapors or moisture trapped within a concrete floor can cause flooring damage. To avoid shortening the lifespan of a concrete floor, solutions for reducing excessive moisture are essential for business owners. Some of the most common signs that you may have a moisture problem are:
- Mold and mildew
At Extraordinary Flooring, we install moisture mitigation systems designed to prevent moisture vapor transmission from the concrete slap to the surface. Before we apply a resinous or an epoxy coating on top of the concrete slab, we always consider a moister mitigation system. The system forms a tight barrier, minimizing the moisture transfer to the surface. This step is critical for concrete flooring success.
Types of Mitigation Systems
Depending on the type of concrete used, the following are examples of concrete floor moisture mitigation systems:
- Preformed Membranes – A water-resistant barrier (for example, silicone) that protects against moisture from penetrating through the concrete.
- Epoxy or Resinous Coatings – A layer that adheres directly to the concrete and forms a water-tight barrier.
Cementitious Coatings – The epoxy or resinous coating forms the moisture barrier, and a very thin layer of cement is applied on top.
