Humidity. It’s something that people in the Lowcountry know more about than many care to admit. And while we are all aware that humidity comes with the territory, certain aspects of it can still boggle the mind as to how best to approach caring for both residential and commercial spaces in a humid environment. One of the most difficult spaces to keep dry and well kept is the commercial storage room. A great answer to this problem is placing raised flooring over an installed concrete floor.
Raised flooring is a great option for basements or ground floors that are in climates high in humidity. This is because raised flooring creates a gap between the concrete flooring and anything placed on the floor itself. This gap allows for increased air circulation between the raised flooring and floor itself to help alleviate moisture buildup. And one of the greatest things about raised flooring is that it can actually be installed directly on top of concrete flooring. That means that if you didn’t initially install raised flooring, you don’t have to remove all of your old flooring before you put in the new flooring. This saves both time and money!
Not only is installing raised flooring less expensive since removing the old flooring isn’t required, but it also saves you countless dollars on merchandise. Before, you likely had to worry about replacing damaged merchandise or belongings due to moisture damage. Using raised flooring to help increase air flow will significantly cut down on this issue.
Raised flooring is not the only answer to solving the issue of trapped moisture in humid storage rooms, but it is a great option.
