Why does residual moisture in the screed not disappear even after 2 months?
I poured a screed with water underfloor heating a few months ago, total thickness 70 mm. After a month I poured screed (the first time – I made a mistake) and after another month I re-filled the floor.
I have put laminate, but not everywhere. Some time later I saw that the joints on the laminate are a bit gone, so I decided to remove the strip and reinsert when removed and there is a lot of moisture. The floors have been in place for 2 months and the moisture is not going away. Just today I took off a piece of film that was installed 2 days ago and there is moisture dripping out.
What should I do? If I put laminate down, the moisture will build up again.
So you should have warmed up the floors, and then put the laminate flooring in.
1.5 months working without laminate, and the moisture is not completely gone.
Are you sure that the floor heating is not leaking?
Yeah, it's a one-piece metal pipe, it's been under pressure for a couple of weeks.
Was it pressurized before the screed, or did you pressurize it afterwards?
Before the screed was poured.
