Hello, everyone, I'm Joshua Clement, and today I'm going to talk to you about how to pull moisture out of your plywood floors. Now it's very important not to install any flooring on top of your plywood floors if it has any moisture in it, 'cause it could damage the flooring. For this job you will need plenty of space heaters or a salamander, something that creates heat to pull that moisture up out of the floor. You also want to crack a window if you can, if it's not real cold outside, that way the moisture has somewhere to escape, and it's not going into your drywall or into your hardwood walls. If you have access to a dehumidifier, that will help capture that moisture if you aren't able to open up a window, that way you can just take it outside, dump it, or dump it down a drain. It's important not to leave any moisture in your plywood floors, because it could start to warp your plywood floors, or cause mold or rot in your flooring. Thank you all for watching, and good luck with this project.
