Preventive Testing


Testing before installation is ideal to identify and address potential problems before they occur. We inspect, test, and provide recommendations before flooring is installed. The advantage of pre-testing is to document current conditions of the subfloor; resulting in informed flooring installation decisions. The two types of tests we recommend are:

  • Moisture Vapor Emission (Calcium chloride)
  • Relative Humidity (Meter testing)



When a flooring problem is suspected we investigate and provide recommendations. Common moisture related flooring issues:

  • Bubbling
  • Buckling

  • Cupping

  • Staining

  • Adhesive bleeding

  • And many others



Whether diagnostic or preventive, we provide detailed reporting of current conditions and corrective recommendations. Our reports serve as independent documentation which is invaluable insurance.
