Reasons to use moisture meters
Key reasons to use a Moisture Meter for flooring include:
Detection of continuous moisture migration toward the surface.
To test the surface and mid-section of concrete slabs.
To reduce the chances of excess moisture in wood & concrete sub-floors.
To identify potential for de-lamination in synthetic floors.
Prevent structural damage with a concrete moisture meter
Excessive moisture in concrete floor slabs and screeds can lead to a host of problems in all types of floor coverings such as: adhesive degradation, delaminating of the floor covering from the slab and within itself, condensation, blistering, movement and deterioration of the covering. A moisture meter is the simplest way to prevent such concerns from the outset.
In the case of wood flooring, excess moisture can lead to swelling, cupping and movement of the wood which can lead to floor failure and even structural damage. Excess moisture can also lead to mould growth. Most of these problems can be related to the floor covering being installed on a sub floor that is not sufficiently dry. It is therefore important to insure that the concrete slab or screed is sufficiently dry enough to accept floor coverings, coatings or a timber floor.
