Bone Dry Protects Cafeteria Floor from Mold and Odor
Prior to 2015, the Minnesota State University in Mankato had eliminated two of its three dining halls, leaving 2,700 students to fight for space in a single facility originally designed to accommodate 1,800. In September 2015, the University began construction on a brand new dining facility expected to serve 3,000 students. Dining facilities like these are naturally exposed to frequent food and liquid spills, which can seep into concrete substrates, causing mold and bacterial growth beneath floor coverings.
The contractors building this state-of-the-art facility turned to the concrete moisture mitigation specialists at Bone Dry to keep the substrate dry. Our Bone Dry Pro System was used to properly seal and protect the cementitious substrate beneath floor coverings including carpet, tiling, VCT, and LVT.
Bone Dry Pro System with Antimicrobial Protection
The Bone Dry Pro System provided everything the building contractors needed to seal the facility’s concrete flooring. Our deep penetrating concrete sealer, Bone Dry Pro, creates a unique vapor barrier deep in the structure to prevent moisture from leaching through and surfacing. Bone Dry Pro keeps surfacing moisture in check, preventing a whole host of problems caused by water trapped between the concrete and the floor covering: adhesive failure, mold growth, and substrate damage among them. Bone Dry Pro is the product trusted by industry professionals and it comes with an outstanding 20-year warranty against moisture-related floor covering failure.
The antimicrobial additives in Bone Dry Pro prevent organic growth resulting from kitchen and cafeteria spills, and the Quick Dry additive saves time for project managers by dramatically reducing the curing duration.
