Moisture Remediation in Minden, NV

Although solid, concrete is actually porous. Water can be wicked up by concrete and move through it. Along the way, the water surrounds salts in the concrete and transports them to the surface. When the water reaches the surface and evaporates, the salts are left behind. This creates the unseemly white substance that often forms on concrete called efflorescence. To prevent efflorescence, you require concrete moisture remediation.

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

What to Do About Groundwater

Some moisture issues are severe enough that you need to take other measures outside the building, but when the problem is just in the concrete, our epoxy sealing treatment is enough to waterproof the floor. After treatment, you can safely install ceramic tiles, carpet, laminate, or wood floors.

For epoxy sealants, the age of the concrete typically does not matter as long as it is stable. Epoxy coatings dry quickly, minimizing delays, but it cannot be applied to new concrete until the material is fully set.
