FLOOR TEST Australia's moisture testing technician is independent of all commercial flooring interests, and certified by the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), the most credible worldwide authority on concrete moisture testing relevant to flooring. The ICRI certification is only obtainable in the USA. There, moisture-related flooring failures are known as the "billion-dollar problem", and the most extensive research into best practices are conducted by major concrete authorities such as ICRI, American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the Portland Cement Association. It is highly recommended that moisture testing be undertaken by qualified, INDEPENDENT agencies.
The advantages of an independent testing agency are outlined in our WHY TEST page.

Demand for accurate and independent underfloor slab moisture testing
is rapidly increasing.
FLOOR TEST Australia emerges from over eleven years' experience in the timber flooring industry and consultation on flooring installation issues.
FLOOR TEST Australia's technicians have assisted a wide range of contractors, builders and architects in many facets of flooring installation and finish. Inspections and consultation, as well as submissions for the improvement of industry practices and professional development are among the experiences of FLOOR TEST Australia's technician. Industry practices for underfloor slab moisture testing are outlined by Australian Standards (AS/NZS 1884, AS/NZS 2455). In June 2012 AS/NZS 1884 was revised to stipulate that RH at depth was replacing surface moisture content as the requirement for resilient flooring installation.
