Why Concrete Dew Point Is Important in Flooring Installations
In this video Jason Spangler, Rapid RH® Product Specialist explains the importance of and which tools you will need to determine the dew point of a concrete slab, a necessary yet rarely talked about aspect of the flooring installation process. Here Jason demonstrates the relationship between a digital thermo-hygrometer and an infrared thermometer.
Using these two tools you can determine the temperature of the concrete compared to the readings of the thermo-hygrometer. Experts will tell you that you do NOT want to install a floor if the dew point is within 5 degrees of the concrete temperature.
