Water Damage from Concrete in Culver City, CA
Residents living in Culver City to Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, Playa Del Rey and even towards West LA would never think that water pooling in your backyard on concrete could create such damage. Moisture can enter through the stucco of your home where the concrete meets the home. Not to mention when your house sits on a slab of concrete, a whole floor can cup from the concrete being too wet. This can happen even when a vapor barrier is used under the laminate floor.
Every concrete floor should be tested for moisture before laminate floor covering is installed. Concrete that is newly poured needs to be allowed to cure for sixty days or more before the laminate is installed. There are several ways to test for moisture.
These procedures should be performed by professionals like our highly trained technicians at SERVPRO of Culver City/Baldwin Hills, such as electronic testing and calcium chloride testing. We have the proper equipment and training to do the job correctly and in a timely manner.
