Small section of Flooding in basement.. opinions on my options?
I'm wondering if I should just bite the bullet now and rip up the wet laminate? (and just deal with unfinished flooring in this section of the basement until I can replace it)...
Or if I can just live with the laminate after it dries? Obviously my main concern is mold and mildew underneath the laminate if it does not get fully dried.. will the actions I'm taking do you know if the floor underneath the laminate will dry enough to live with slightly unsightly laminate?
(Context this is an 70 year old resold home in Toronto that I bought this past fall. Hadn't had any flooding or dampness until this rainfall. I know it was previously renovated ~10 years ago by the previous owner and they didn't have flooding either in the past 10 years.)
