Right Way To Store Cement to Maintain its Quality

If your home’s construction is taking place during the rains, make sure that you cover the cement stack either with a tarpaulin or plastic covering.

Cement is one of the most valuable materials when you build a house so it’s important that you store it properly. Whatever type of cement you use, if it absorbs moisture, its quality degrades

The cement bags should also be kept a minimum space of two metres from the nearest wall or ceiling.

Do not store your cement bags out in the open. Store them in a windowless room to protect them against the moisture in the air.

Avoid stacking more than fifteen bags on top of each other as there is a risk of the cement forming lumps.

To protect your cement against moisture from the ground, store the cement bags on a wooden platform that is raised off the floor at a height of six to eight inches.

When using the cement, take only as many bags from the stack as needed for construction on that day.

The fresher the cement, the more it retains its strength so always remember to use the first cement bag first and so on.
