Installation Advice?

1930s house. Professional removal of asbestos tile in basement complete. (Carpet was glued directly to the tile so both had to go.) Floor is concrete with minimal hairline cracks. Occasional, minimal water during very heavy rains in the spring. Wanting to install ceramic tile in this area.

Is it necessary to put anything between the tile and the concrete floor, other than thin set?

Tape (seal) a small sheet (about 1 sq ft)of plastic to the concrete and let it be for 24hrs minimum to see if there is any presence of moisture coming up through the slab. advise us of the results, and we'll try to put you on the correct path.

Typically I would use something like ditra in your application. It aids in many ways. Check it out for yourself. Some added piece of mind in my eyes.
