Leak Under Laminate Flooring


Hello,

I have a leak under my laminate flooring in my basement. I have been running a dehumdifier for a couple weeks and get full buckets every day. I Think there may be a old floor drain somewhere which might be causing the problem. Any suggestions?

Thx

First you have to remove the flooring, by now there will be mold under it.
Then find the leak and cut out that section of concrete and fix it.

If it turns out to be old copper supply lines, it may be time to rerun them above the floor. At some point they were going to fail.
