Tropical Storm Debby Stinks.
Well wasn’t that fun…NOT. If you are a resident of Florida the past couple of days you likely have been focused on things like rainfall totals and Klystron 9 radar images. Why?
WATER. As Floridians, we are surrounded by it, and as a general rule we are big fans. Swimming, boating, fishing, all awesome -But, on occasion we get a little too much of a good thing. Our new friend Tropical Storm Debby has been a painful reminder to us all that it really doesn’t take much “extra” water for things to get weird in a hurry. Just ask the guy who has to post a no wake sign in his driveway, or the lady who has to shoo an alligator out of her screen enclosure.
Which got me thinking – If I were to name the one big flooring issue that people have in Florida, it has got to be the moisture problem. Yep, Water – when there is too much in your floors, things get weird quick too.
Okay, like I said in the last post I’m going to take a time out from exposing the tricks of the trade (too depressing) and spend some time doing a series of posts on flooring issues that no Floridian should have to learn the hard way: Moisture + Flooring = BAD. Now there is a a lot to go over here, and I want to get it right, so I am going to break it up a bit so it isn’t a total snoozefest. My first post (tomorrow hopefully) will be about the subfloor that most of us have – the Concrete slab
