moisture mitigation floor painting

Companies are now able to test your flooring moisture levels before installing any overlays. There are many potential ways for moisture to damage your flooring and other parts of the home. Symptoms of a pressing moisture issue include:

  • Gaps between tiles
  • Adhesive oozing
  • Bumps
  • Dents
  • Cupping
  • Bubbles
  • Indentations

All of these flooring failures are signs of moisture releasing too much vapor in the underlying concrete.  

What can be done to prevent these issues?

We will begin to explore the various moisture control systems and how they protect your concrete and floor coverings from flooring failures.

At Zenith Painting and Coatings, we offer three primary solutions that keep moisture and water vapor at bay. It is important to understand the differences between moisture mitigation solutions and to ask for a professional opinion before choosing a system. We have provided a brief summary but only through speaking with a licensed and experienced flooring expert can you determine which solution is best for your home.


This moisture vapor retarder is formulated to be used as an overlay for concrete which can mitigate 100% of the accumulated moisture. Once installed, moisture and pH testing are no longer necessary, and slab conditions will no longer negatively affect coatings or floor finishes! ARDEX MC RAPID has been used for over a decade and has proven itself to be extremely effective. ARDEX MC RAPID is used in a variety of critical environments including schools, hospitals, and industrial warehouses.


ARDEX VR 95 is a newer product on the moisture mitigation market. Since its release in 2016, it has proven to be an effective solution that is impressively fast to implement. The ARDEX VR 95 is a primed, one-component, water-based, two-coat system. It is designed to suppress residual moisture in new concrete with RH readings up to 95%. ARDEX underlayment may be installed over the second coat in under 2 hours without priming. This is a great solution for any project that needs moisture mitigation taken care of quickly.

Epoxy Floor Coating

Epoxy coating is a clear concrete sealing system that is perfect for moisture mitigation. Unlike most sealants, our epoxy system only requires a single application. Epoxy can be used to seal multiple surfaces including exposed aggregate, concrete, flagstone, paver stone, wood, and decorative & stamped concrete. This is a durable solution that will protect your concrete for years. Epoxy is ideal for high traffic areas and will result in a finished gloss to make your concrete more functional and aesthetically pleasing.
