Concrete floor and laminate

The Reader's Digest version of our saga is that 4 years ago we had laminate flooring installed (over previously carpeted/tiled areas) in 75% of our home (built in 1987)--. The laminate began to bubble at many of the seams. After a protracted time of dealing with one of the national home improvement chains, they agreed to replace the laminate. When they began pulling up the old laminate --black mold everywhere. We've now been out of our home for 2+ weeks while it goes through mold remediation. It appears that there were 2 possible causes of the problem-- the underlayment was improperly installed and we have a "wet slab" (90%+ rh). The area that had previously been tiled had no mold whatsoever
The question -- we still want to re-install laminate. Will a sealer, such as MVP and a higher grade, properly installed underlayment solve our problem or are we doomed to tile and carpet??
