In many projects, moisture mitigation is an afterthought but in reality, it should be one of the first aspects of a project that you think about. Treating a traditional concrete mixture with a moisture mitigation treatment after a floor failure can not only be costly in and of itself, but can also cause costly construction delays and overruns.
Why Traditional Concrete Mixtures Fail
Flooring failures occur when traditional concrete mixtures are not quite dry but construction still continues. Flooring is placed but then, because the concrete has yet to dry, proper adhesion between the slab and flooring material does not occur leading to costly flooring damage like curling, rippling, and mold and mildew damage happen. Once this happens, you’re responsible to make the repairs and implement a moisture mitigation treatment. These types of repairs can be very expensive, not only due to materials needed for repairs but also due to the labor that will be put into the repairs. The largest cost to you, however, is the lost revenue of not having a functional facility.
Eliminate the Need for Moisture Mitigation Treatments
By choosing a rapid-drying concrete for moisture elimination, you’re substantially reducing your risk of floor covering failures. Moisture elimination removes any worry regarding moisture-related flooring issues while keeping project delays and cost overruns a thing of the past.
Rapid-drying concrete dries uniformly and quickly, allowingconstruction to continue on schedule and eliminate the need for flooring repairs at a later date. Because of the dryness rapid-drying concrete introduces to a project from the beginning, problems like sick building syndrome, mold and mildew damage, and curling no longer exist. Because of this, you will not have to implement a moisture mitigation treatment in the future. You will save money on additional treatments and additional construction, which will allow you to complete your project on time, safely, and on budget.
