“Moisture,” a single word that can mean large complications for building owners. With Kilcor, deteriorating floors due to moisture vapor emission do not have to be a source of stress.
Here’s the problem: Concrete floor slabs contain excess moisture that can damage many types of floor finished. Moisture vapor transmission begins in the very early stages of contracting — as soon as the concrete is poured moisture begins to enter the subfloor. The concrete will continue to absorb water from the ground and humid air conditions. Over time the water migrates from an area of high vapor pressure (the concrete) to an area of low vapor pressure like a dry building’s interior. The high concentrations of moisture and alkalinity can lead to to the deterioration of flooring adhesives and coatings — compromising even the toughest flooring systems.
To avoid this the concrete slab should be sealed with a material that will tightly bond to the concrete. There are various materials for retarding emission of moisture vapor from concrete floor slabs, many of which can be applied to the slab surfaces shortly before the installation of flooring systems.
Why You Should Hire Kilcor For The Job
However, this is no “Do It Yourself,” project like you might see on popular HGTV shows. There are several types of moisture mitigation systems, new ASTM F3010-13 standards for moisture vapor barriers, and of course the installation. These systems can be so complex that often manufacturers offer training for their moisture mitigation products. Kilcor’s trained professionals have the knowledge and experience to install your moisture mitigation systems so that they work at maximum efficiency. You have a business to run, don’t let moisture problems get in your way. Call Kilcor for your moisture mitigation needs.
