Before installing your beautiful new flooring, the most important step is to consider how much moisture is in your concrete slab. This measurement is referred to as the moisture vapor emission rate (MVER).
Introducing Wagner Meters’ Rapid RH testing system. For successful flooring projects, it is crucial to measure moisture below the surface of the concrete slab. Only the in situ relative humidity (RH) test is scientifically proven for accuracy and reliability.
Schnox EPA and EPA Rapid are two of the industry’s most sought-after moisture mitigation solutions. With EPA and EPA Rapid, residual moisture issues in your interior or exterior concrete subfloor as high as 100% RH are handled with just one coat.
