In the construction industry, one of the biggest things that keep construction managers, general contractors and subcontractors awake at night is meeting increasingly tight deadlines while keeping quality high. Among many others, one challenge often faced: a concrete slab with elevated moisture levels.
Waiting for the natural drying process is often unfeasible due to the time it can take to try, causing delays. Unless the specifications for moisture content in the concrete are met, the next floor cannot be constructed, sealers can’t be applied and flooring subcontractors cannot proceed. This chain-reaction of delays pushes up costs and risks over-running deadlines for completion.
