Substrate Odor

RE: Substrate Odor
I agree the Dependable is not the product you want on a slab that has no vapor retarder, is on grade and has elevated moisture levels.

If you are willing to go so far as to remove the patch, at that point for about $200 worth of product, you can install the mitigation system and have at least one cubicle that is properly constructed.

The benefits to this plan are numerous.

The facility sees the mitigation as a cost effective and viable solution.

The mystery and reluctance to mitigate goes away. Most people just don't know how easy and inexpensive mitigating is!

The flooring and adhesive specifications are met (which they are not when installed on a slab with no vapor retarder).

The problem is solved permanently.

You become the hero and your credibility and trust factors go up a notch.

In situations like this I throw in the mitigation for free. The cost is minimal. The experience is priceless. And remember, if you remove all that patch and replace it with FF, you still won't have a warranty from Ardex, the flooring maker, or the adhesive manufacturer. So if the problem comes back, you're in the same boat with less money, and now they feel it's your fault.

I'd give them the $200 worth of epoxy and see how it goes. Wink
