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.
