Quick Slab Drying
Often construction schedules won't allow the luxury of waiting for a slab to dry to manufacturer's specifications before proceeding with scheduled flooring work.
One solution is to establish and maintain optimum indoor environment conditions while the slab dries. Using a desiccant dehumidification system provides good moisture abatement and aggressive drying, compressing the time for achieving acceptable moisture levels in the slab and other building materials.
