water damage under carpet

Went to rally and had a blast. Nice rv repair folks there are doing a new floor in our rig, cherry vinyl planking, beautiful. But when they pulled the rug up, we had so much mold from water in the rig from leaks and so forth. We had to have servpro come in and treat the mold and clean out the rig. Tile was down so well, had to get a jack hammer to get it out. You have to get all water out of your rig if you have carpet, carpet is the worst thing to have, water is trapped under the pad and goes to the sub flooring underneath. Mold can really make you sick. I am so glad we found this and got it out. Now we will have an easy to keep up floor and it looks so beautiful against our oak cabinets. The problem is when you buy a rig you will never know if there is water damage unless you pick up the floor. so take care you guys, it can get expensive to treat and you can get real sick from it. We live in our rig, and tomorrow the work will be done, we are so glad for it.

All of the clean up work will be for naught if you did not find and stop the leaks. Hopefully the subflooring had not gone soft on you.

We had an ice maker line break on the fridge and also a pipe under the kitchen sink. thought I got all the water sopped up but we didn'nt. Also we bought the unit used and never would have known if there was any flooding.

If there is any amount of water for more than a couple of days, you usually start to get a musty smell that is a pretty good indication.
