Moisture Remediation in Fernley, NV

Although solid, concrete is in truth porous. Water can be wicked up by concrete and travel through it. Along the way, the water dissolves salts in the concrete and transports them to the surface. Once the water reaches the surface and dries, the salts are left behind. This creates the unseemly white substance that often forms on concrete called efflorescence. To halt efflorescence, you require concrete moisture remediation.

Water comes up through the concrete for various reasons that do not involve leaky pipes. The type of soil and amount of rainfall might influence the level of groundwater. The presence of springs or near-surface aquifers may also create water reservoirs underneath your business or home. And a nearby lake, river, or stream might affect the water content in the ground, especially if your foundation is below the level of the high water mark.

What To Do About Efflorescence

Some water problems are severe enough that in addition to sealing the surface, you also need to take other actions outside the building. But if the issue is just in the concrete, our epoxy sealing application is enough to waterproof the foundation. Then you can confidently install ceramic tiles, carpet, laminate, or wood floors.

The water remediation procedure benefits a concrete floor of any age and is fast enough to prevent unwanted delays for planned remodels.
