So why ?
First thing I did was check the concrete floor with a damp meter …the readings shocked me they were off the scale of the meter …99.99%
Client with a new build house …just moved in and we undertook an inspection for them today ….they happened to mention in passing that they were having trouble getting a floor tiler to come and lay tiles …none wanted to work on new build houses
Even the builder declined to fit any type of floor covering
Alarm bells ringing now
So I rang around colleagues out inspecting and they checked thier floors and we found a range between 25 and 39 percent
It’s no wonder no one wants to lay a floor …nothing is going to stick to that floor until it’s dried out
