Does your concrete floor have a moisture problem?
Moisture in your concrete floor is potentially a major problem. Concrete may seem solid, but it’s actually porous and water will slowly move through it from underneath the slab to evaporate at the surface. If your floor has this problem, you see a white, powdery material clinging to the concrete. That’s called efflorescence, and it comes from elements in the concrete being carried to the surface by moisture. You may also see spots or joints in the concrete that are visibly moist. Where the concrete isn’t covered, this is usually just a cosmetic problem. If the concrete is covered, with carpet, wood or cheap epoxy, problems always result from excessive water vapor. Moldy carpet, stained and warped wood, and peeling coatings always result from water seeping through concrete.
