All tests done with Wagner 4.0.

Date / test site / RH / Temp

7-11 / #1 / 94 / 73
7-17 / #1 / 94 / not recorded
[heat turned on, air moved, floor received a light shotblast to a CSP of no more than 2]
7-30 / #1 / 94 / 79
8-07 - no test

7-11 / #2 / 96 / 73
7-17 / #2 / 91 / not recorded
[heat turned on, air moved, floor received a light shotblast to a CSP of no more than 2]
7-30 / #2 / [no reading / debris]
[hole vacuumed out of debris @ time of test]
8-07 - no test

7-11 / #3 / 91 / 74

Obviously the slab temp went up when we cranked the HVAC. I think removing the old adhesive with the light shotblast helped a lot to let moisture out just over one month.

RE: Heat, move air, shotblast = lower results
You had three 'no-tests' on 8/7. It would help to see what those probes read.

Were the probes acclimated for 72 hours on the first test date of 7/11? If not we should discount those readings.

When the slab temp rises we expect to see a decrease in relative humidity. Additional readings would help indicate a trend. Another helpful bit of information would be ambient conditions and whether the HVAC is constantly on or just being run sporadically. Is the building envelope completed and sealed?
