Damp Concrete Garage Floor

Vapor barrier was omitted on the advice of the builder. Stupid way to save ten bucks. Anyway, I removed and replaced the floor in October- and added a vapor barrier. However, when we pulled out the floor there did not appear to be any excessive dampness. We've gone through a wet winter and it all seems to be fine now. I believe the downspouts are routed correctly. I guess the real cause will never be known. It's a mystery for the ages...

Here's some video of the removal.
