wet dew on marble kitchen every morning
 
-I live in south Florida on the east coast --7th floor
-I do not use the A/C ever
-I keep the front door(to cat walk) open and the back door (to the deck) open all day--nice breeze comes through
The problem is ever morning (9 out of 10) there is a wet spot about four
feet by 2 feet in front of the door. 8am
I dry it up and it will bead up again about 2 feet. 9am
I dry it up and it will bead up again about 6 inches. 10am
By 11am it is dry

need suggestions:jester:

hi and welcome.
how close are you to the ocean?
what type of flooring is this? tile?

not marble but
 
Ok let see it is a marble floor not real marble but 1/4 inch marble on top
and than some backing--the floor was put in two years ago
but
the old tile floor had the same problem in the same spot

Just looked at my daily tracking of this problem--wet about 8 out of 10
days---and---this is not my unit only--(others have the same problem)

Help Help

so... water is seeping up from below between the cracks in the tiling?

If the floor has ductwork below it with AC feeding other condo's and your getting warm air/sunlight on that area you'll get condensation on the marble.

First thing I's do is try closing the doors for a day or two and see if that makes a difference.

If not then I'd call the condo association.
