Prevent Mold Growth In Your Basement With ThermalDry® Flooring

Concrete is porous and therefore allows moisture to pass through it in either liquid or vapor form. So, traditional flooring and carpet made of organic compounds that absorb moisture and support mold growth and rot are NOT the materials to use in your basement.

Things like moisture vapor and leaky pipes, washing machines, water heaters and windows can saturate organic flooring materials, and may cause mold growth and buckling and warping.

Wood Subflooring = Mold

Having a wood subfloor below a carpet in a basement can cause rotting and mold growth.

Traditional basement finishing uses a wood subfloor with carpet on top. When this wood subfloor gets damp, it will rot, buckle, and grow mold. As humidity rises up naturally through the concrete floor, it accumulates under these floors.

Sources of Basement Moisture

  • Leaky Washing Machines
  • Failed Water Heaters
  • Old Basement Windows
  • Foundation Flooding
  • Bursting Pipes
  • Upper Level Plumbing
  • Humidity from Concrete

Comfortable and Healthy Carpet in Your Finished Basement

Basement Carpet Flooring

When finishing your basement floor, there are four common ways to put down the carpeting. They are:

  • Lay the carpet down on top of the concrete.
  • Build a platform, subfloor & attach the carpet to that.
  • Install a chipboard/plastic layer beneath the carpet.
  • Place a waterproof subfloor underneath the carpet.

ThermalDry® Floor Matting, available in Michigan and Wisconsin by Northland Basement Systems, is an appropriate subfloor when installing wall-to-wall carpeting or padding in a finished basement. These award-winning interlocking tiles create a vapor barrier on your concrete floor that will keep humidity from affecting your custom carpeting on top. These tiles are compatible with tack strips, and should outlast several generations of basement carpeting.

As an added benefit, ThermalDry® floor tiles have a special design that lifts them off the basement floor. This creates a thermal break underneath that will make the surface of your ThermalDry® tiles 8-10 degrees warmer than the cold concrete below!

In the event of a basement flood,normal carpeting will not generally be as easy to dry as our finished basement floor systems. However, it will provide you with a world of options when you're upgrading or finishing your basement!
