Shortly after construction, the hospital reported rutting and liquid emanating from joints in sheet vinyl flooring, wet and soft adhesive under carpet tile and sheet vinyl, and cracking and bulging of vinyl composition tile (VCT) installed over a moisture mitigation coating. Following replacement of some sheet vinyl flooring with an alternate moisture mitigation coating, the hospital reported liquid-filled blisters in the repaired floor finishes. SGH investigated the cause(s) of the reported flooring failures.
