Moisture and Teragren Bamboo-understanding MC and RH

Thank you for your inquiry regarding Teragren flooring and moisture.

 

Teragren bamboo flooring is factory acclimated to a moisture content of 7-9% which correlates to a relative humidity level of 35-55% at 80 degrees F

Like all hardwoods, if Teragren’s bamboo flooring is exposed to liquid water or to relative humidity levels higher than 60%, the moisture content of the flooring will rise.  Should the moisture content of the flooring exceed 18 percent, there is an opportunity for mold growth.  It is also possible for mold to grow on the surface of flooring as the result of organic contamination adhering to its surface which may itself retain moisture.  Additionally, in wet environments, it may be possible for water to work its way between planks and migrate underneath them.  Due to the density of some hardwood and bamboo flooring materials, this water accumulation may occur more rapidly than it can evaporate, causing the moisture content of the environment to rise above acceptable levels.  To address this, moisture barriers should be installed below flooring installations (to keep moisture from migrating up into the flooring from the subfloor), and moisture from the surface should be limited.

 

I hope the above is helpful.  Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
