Will this mold if the floor gets wet?
As mold can grow on almost any surface if moisture is left we strongly recommend that if moisture gets under the mat it be dried, however the product itself will not promote mold growth. This flooring is completely waterproof and will keep any moisture from penetrating through the product. This also means that if moisture exist in the concrete subfloor that it will not be able to evaporate if trapped under the flooring. It is also possible for moisture to migrate under the flooring from around the edges if not fully glued down. The product cannot control moisture or debris from entering from around the edges or the underside of the flooring. Some possible solutions to your problem would be to have your concrete floor sealed before reinstalling the G-Floor mat and or moving the mat periodically to allow the area underneath to dry especially in areas of high humidity.
