• Misuses of the Moisture–Vapor Emission Test

Concrete Consultants and Moisture Testing


The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) published a position statment (# 26) titled, Misuses of the Moisture–VaporEmission Test. ASCC states that the Moisture-vapor emission test (MVER) is widely used in the flooring industry but that there are some concerns when it's used to try and evaluate moisture in concrete.

ASCC makes three major points in their position statement. 1) MVER cannot determine concrete quality. 2) MVER cannot determine concrete permeability and 3) does not measure a property of the entire concrete slab.

Building Forensics International provides concrete moisture testing expert consultants who examine the full scope of why is there moisture in the concrete and where is the source of the moisture and finally what are the ramifications. BFI encourages you to take the time to read the above mentioned position statement # 26 by ASCC.
