Considering this, why is my laminate floor sweating?
For most floors, condensation is the main reason for the sweating, especially in warm weather. When warm humid air from outside comes into contact with the cold concrete the air rapidly cools and condenses on the surface causing the wetness.
Also, can you fix wet laminate flooring? If your floor shows signs of water damage, there is little to do except replace the affected floorboards. Once the boards are water damaged, they can't be sanded or fixed in any other way. Even when the surface appears dry, the boards can still hold enough water that your laminate floor is bubbling at the seams.
Also to know is, does laminate flooring cause damp?
The underlay of the laminate flooring includes a thin plastic sheet that covers the concrete floor right up to the skirting. The damp is all in the lower part of the walls (the first couple of feet) and is particularly bad in the skirting boards (some of which have completely rotted).
How do I stop my floor from sweating?
How to stop concrete sweating
- Dry out the room by air movement: a high volume low speed fan works well.
- Turn down the air conditioning/turn up the heat to keep the concrete floor temperature and the air temperature at similiar levels.
- Use a dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air and reduce the condensation.
