How to store Cement Bags Properly

Storage of the cement is done in a very specialized manner. First of all the place of storage should be selected in such a way that there is less circulation of air,because the air contains moisture and cement sets due to it very soon. Cement should not be kept in open too. The floor and roof should be damp proof. The cement bags should be stalked in such a way that it facilitates inspection from all the four sides. In one stalk not more than 10 bags should be loaded in vertical space. In general wooden sleepers should be used in the bottom, which should be at least 20 cm for the floor and it should also be at least 30 cm away from the wall of the stalk room.At the time of using cement, it should be ensured that the cement bags which had arrived first are put to use first. If the cement is more than 6 months old, it should be used only after performing the strength test of cement.
