The Lowdown on Moisture Control

Some of you out there may not know this, but here at T.W. Hicks we are the reigning champs when it comes to controlling the moisture in commercial floors, and our systems have been proven to work time and time again for all of our clients here in our great state of Texas as well as across the country. Excess moisture in concrete is defined by the amount of moisture emitting from the concrete subfloor that exceeds the amount allowed by the flooring manufacturer.  This condition usually  occurs when the flooring is installed before the water in the concrete mix has had sufficient time to evaporate.hicks 2

Moisture control systems are chemical barriers used to suppress moisture and prevent damage to your industrial and commercial floors.   When excess moisture seeps into concrete it can cause significant and expensive damage, and according to an article published by Concrete Construction Magazine, there are literally hundreds of millions of dollars that are spent annually just in the U.S. alone to correct moisture-related problems in flooring.   These problems include the failure of the flooring adhesive, damage to the floor covering such as blistering and the growth of pesky mold and mildew.

Our top-of-the-line moisture control systems are designed to bring moisture emission rates to acceptable levels for your flooring and help protect against all issues associated with excess moisture in the slab.

At T.W. Hicks, we provide our clients with cost-effective and ecologically sound moisture control systems that are highly beneficial to their business.   We invite you to call us at 866-841-3484 to speak with one of our friendly and knowledgeable team members who will happily answer all of your questions and get you started on your journey to a moisture-free workplace!
