Subfloor Moisture Prevention

One of the key challenges in flooring installation is subfloor moisture. Unchecked moisture can lead to a variety of issues such as mould growth, warping, and adhesive failure. Hesketh Park Flooring recommends implementing effective subfloor moisture prevention measures to safeguard your investment.

This involves using moisture barriers and sealants to create a protective layer between the subfloor and the flooring material. Adequate ventilation is also essential to prevent moisture buildup beneath the flooring, especially in areas prone to high humidity. This proactive approach helps prevent future issues like cupping, buckling, or mould growth, thus ensuring longevity for your flooring installation.

Moisture testing is a critical aspect of flooring preparation that should not be overlooked. Hesketh Park Flooring conducts thorough moisture testing to assess the moisture content of the subfloor to determine whether additional measures are required.

For certain flooring types, such as hardwood or laminate, the use of plywood underlayment is crucial.
