Seco Floors

A basement sub-floor system that protects your home from mold while heating your floors.

Modern Solutions For Basements

Seco Floors provides a sealed wood sub-floor installed on top of your concrete slab in your basement that prevents mold growth while also adding comfort with heated floors.

The system is designed to work on both new and existing homes. Regardless of a home’s age or the quality of concrete, your basement floors require protection.

Seco Floors actively circulates air between the concrete and sub-floor, monitoring the humidity of that air. This provides an environment that allows new concrete to “breath” while also ensuring long-term monitoring and protection.

All basement floors are susceptible to moisture, temperature changes, and condensation. Seco Floors is the only solution that provides long-term protection for you and your family.

The Basics

  • Prevents mold growth through moisture control.
  • Removes excess moisture from concrete, eliminating the musty smell common to basements.
  • Heated air circulated below the floor provides a warm and comfortable living space.

Seco Air Handler

The Seco Air Handler is the heart of the Seco Floors system. It regulates the air between the concrete floor and sub-floor, controlling the humidity to maintain a safe and mold-free environment.

Mold and Moisture

Mold in your home grows as a result of excess moisture commonly found in basements. The best solution is to control the humidity and prevent the mold from growing.

Exposure to mold can have negative health effects including coughing, sneezing, and congestion, while also impacting other respiratory problems such as asthma.

Seco Floors actively measures and controls the moisture level of your basement sub-floor, drawing away excess moisture, preventing mold from growing.

Heated Floors

A heated floor is a critical part of ensuring your basement is a comfortable environment for you and your family.

The Seco Air Handler includes a heating unit to warm the air beneath the sub-floor. This heat transfers into the sub-floor and through to the flooring of your choice.

Seco Floors combines heated floors with mold prevention to prevent that common musty smell and provide a complete package for comfort in your basement.
