In reply to Carpet over concrete, seal floor first? by Nick on August 27th, 1998 12:38 PM [Go to top of thread]

If the land around the house is well drain and the
house is high up, you might not need to do
anything to the floor. completely seal with tape
a piece of 12" by 12" plastic bag to the concrete
floor. After a couple of days, lift it up. If the
concrete is darker under the plastic, it means
that humidity is seeping trough the floor and it
is being trap under the plastic. If that is the
case, there are several products that come in
paint form that you can use to seal your floor.
Even though you are planing to cover it up with
carpet, you should look for one that is rated for
use in floors. A trip to your local hardware store
should provide you with brochures of several
brands. Hope this helps.
