THE SLAB MOISTURE BLUES

shutterstock_653673721Ugly Blisters Can Ruin a Floating Floor — What to do?

It is every house remodeler’s worst nightmare. You pay a small fortune (maybe liquidate the kids’ college fund?) To put in a top of the line hardwood flooring. Everything looks great. Thenout of nowhere, grotesque grayish blisters pop up all around the ground, like the hardwood needed contracted some gruesome, highly communicable African plague. Walking on these blisters pops them,
Releasing the stagnant odor of finish.

What went wrong with my flooring?

Probably, vapor emissions — out of concrete or from some other source under the ground — caused
Moisture to migrate in the hardwood to form those blisters.

In the event you fail to test your flooring and subfloor for moisture, then you put yourself up to get a blister disaster.
Your heating system, for Example, can suck moisture in the slab just as the finish cooks,
Causing each the bubbleishness. Once these blisters occur — unless you want to leave the plague-
Like bubbles set up — you have to scrap the job, rip up the ground, and replace it completely.

To prevent this from happening in your home or rec room:

  • Use a hygrometer to measure humidity of the wood flooring and the subfloor;
  • The NWFA has installation instructions;
  • Also, have a look at the manufacturer’s directions.

Bubbling problem — frequently appear, creating havoc, missed deadlines, thousands of dollars of sudden expenditures, and outrage.
