We recently had a water leak in our Kitchen. I saw the drain hose of the dishwasher leaking under the kitchen sink. It was only a small one (when I saw it), so I fixed the leak, threw a couple of towels down, and called it a night.
The next day, our kitchen floor starting bowing up. I pulled up the vinyl flooring and found the underlayment completely soaked. I pulled that up, to see our subfloor also wet.
EEEEGADD!!! We called in the specialists to see how bad the damage is. It was about a 10′ X 5′ area (50 square feet!), not including the damage under the cabinets and stove.
So, we called the experts in to dry everything up. Come to find out, they ripped up the entire floor!
