Seminar
Moisture Mitigation: Controlling Water Vapour in Concrete Floors
This CPD looks at moisture mitigation for concrete floors prior to receiving non-breathable flooring finishes, such as resin or vinyl. The use of an appropriate vapour control layer can prevent flooring failures caused by high levels of moisture and alkalinity forming at the top surface of the concrete. The CPD covers the causes of moisture related problems in floors, in both new construction, and refurbishment scenarios, and looks at the floor build-ups that can be used over a moisture mitigation system, including high performance self-levelling screeds. This CPD will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the different causes of moisture in concrete floors
- Understand how water vapour can damage various floor finishes
- Understand how water vapour problems can be eliminated
- Understand the importance of concrete testing and analysis
- Understand surface preparation and application
- Understand floor build-ups, screeds and floor finishes available
