A new concrete floor was poured in the basement of my home that is under construction. After 8 weeks there is still a strong odor.
I am chemically sensitive and afraid that this may be a problem for me when I move in. I was told that this is a normal cement odor.
What could be causing this odor and will it off gas over time? We will be pouring another layer of cement for radiant heating. Will this help contain the odor? And what kind of cement should I ask for?
