Moisture Barrier Installation
for Commercial and Residential Buildings
Advanced Environmental Services offers the application of several types of seamless liquid moisture barrier products. These products are typically applied over a concrete floor and under the flooring surface to prevent moisture penetration. These moisture barriers can be applied under nearly any flooring surface including sheet vinyl, tile, carpet, and hardwood floors. Liquid moisture barrier application is commonly used in commercial and residential settings to prevent water vapor intrusion under coolers, under floor tiles, during fast track construction jobs, and for construction projects performed in wet weather. Our liquid moisture barrier will prevent vapor from penetrating the flooring reducing the risk for future problems and mold growth.

Moisture barrier installation typically occurs during new construction, renovation, or restoration projects. The application of our liquid moisture barrier over concrete floors will create a vapor barrier for years to come, therefore, preventing future mold or moisture problems.

Preparation for Moisture Barrier Installation
Prior to installing our liquid moisture barrier product on any floor area, the area must be tested. We offer calcium chloride testing and relative humidity testing to determine the moisture content of each concrete slab that is set to receive moisture barrier application. These tests distinguish the vapor transmission rate (MVER) in order to determine whether moisture barrier installation is necessary and to ensure that the application is successful. After testing, the surfaces that will receive the moisture barrier application should be cleaned and determined to be sound, solid, and absorptive. Cleaning concrete floors can be done with a pressure washer or damp mop, followed by a thorough vacuuming. Proper surface preparation ensures that the moisture barrier will seal properly, preventing moisture penetration.
