Testing moisture in concrete doesn't need to be complicated. Five (5) currently recognized ASTM test protocols for testing concrete slabs for moisture will be explained using the "How and Why" perspective while providing the proper, yet basic, scientific context behind their usage. While this is not a "How-To" course, the attendee will gain a thorough understanding of how the tests work, and how utilizing the protocols together can provide a total and comprehensive "snapshot" of the moisture condition present in the concrete slab before a moisture sensitive floor covering, finish, or coating is applied. In addition, the "8 Basic Questions to Ask the General Contractor" will be shared before the testing is even performed.
1. Learn what test methods can be used to measure moisture in a concrete floor slab.
2. Learn what type of information each test method provides.
3. Learn how to use the information each test method provides.
4. Know what questions to ask before testing.
