Suggested Review – none

1:5:10:065 Tip: Moisture from concrete slabs can be trapped by floor coverings and lead to mold growth. Most flooring manufacturers place limits on the amount of moisture a slab can release. The rainy season is a good time to have a concrete slab tested for excess moisture.


Additional Information

Slab moisture testing is performed by using a “Calcium Chloride Dome Test”
