This practice covers the evaluation of a concrete slab system intended to host the installation of resilient flooring. This practice includes a review of concrete floor slab design and construction documents to ensure compatibility with specified floor covering and adhesive manufacturers requirements. This practice requires the performance of and/or evaluation of concrete moisture tests.
The world floor covering association (WFCA) The Floor Covering Installation Contractors Association (FCICA)and numerous other groups have endorsed the concept of concrete dryness testing and slab evaluation performed by specialized third party agencies for the benefit of all concerned. This practice, when specified in construction documents or contracts will require such testing and evaluation, removing the function from floor covering contractors who are typically ill-prepared for such an evaluation.
