6 Steps on How to Test Moisture in Concrete Floors

2022-5-5  Scientific research determined that testing at 40% of the slab’s depth for concrete drying from one side (20% if drying from two sides) would best predict the final slab RH levels—if it were sealed by a low permeable material at that point in time. Knowing the accurate RH level of the slab can prevent potential moisture-related flooring failure.

Why Flooring Professionals Must Test For Moisture And

The calcium chloride test, long considered the standard for testing concrete moisture vapor emissions, has been in use since the 1940s. This test produces a moisture vapor emissions rate (MVER), which is a reading of how much moisture content is released from 1000 square feet of concrete slab over a 24-hour period.
