Moldy Subfloor Under Dishwasher


I pulled up the floor in my kitchen and under the dishwasher I found a small area of mold, there is no other mold in the kitchen. I just bought the house and it has a brand new dishwasher so I am figuring this mold came from an older leaky dishwasher. Do I need to replace the subfloor or will cleaning it be ok? The floor is no longer wet and still feels solid.

Moldy Subfloor Under Dishwasher


What are you planning on putting down on top of it?

If it's just on the surface and the wood is sound I would scrub it with a bleach solution, let it dry completely, and then put your new floor down.

Moldy Subfloor Under Dishwasher


Laminate wood is going over it. Thanks for the reply, I was hoping I did not have to replace it as that piece of sub floor is under the rest of the kitchen cabinets.
