Please Help!! Mold and Moisture under laminate floor

10 years ago

Hello all! I am new to GW and haven't posted here in flooring yet, but we are in the beginning stages of a complete kitchen reno. We had the contractor take up the laminate flooring and underneath (under the 'vapor barrier') there were some small puddles and the cement was covered in mold!!

We are on a slab, this is the main floor.

Mold is now gone (not black mold.. phew), any suggestions as to why this happened? We just had the other half of the house re-done 2yrs ago with beautiful laminate flooring and we are stressing over the fact that we probably now have mold and water under that floor!!

Can this be prevented?

thanks in advance!
