Certified ASTM F2170 Rh Moisture Testing    
Concrete will do three things over its lifetime, it will get harder as it gets older, it will crack, and it will always hold moisture. But at what level? Excess moisture in a concrete substrate is usually detected long after the construction is completed. The cost to remediate (removing the flooring, preparing the concrete, and installing new flooring) can be quite significant. The cost of performing pre-installation moisture testing is minimal compared to after installation remediation. The most reliable, accurate, scientifically proven way to test for moisture in concrete is ASTM F2170 the in situ relative humidity test.
