I have had a leak in my flat. It came from my ceiling (from the upstairs neighbours), and went down my wooden floor. It was not gushing, but dripping for about two days.
The surveyor came and with his tools said that there was water below the wooden floor (engineered floor). That probably went down the underlay and underfloor (it is concrete beneath, I am ground floor).
His solution is to remove the wooden floor, underlay and underfloor from the affected area, let it dry for three weeks with machines, and then install a new wooden floor.
This is costly and disruptive as me and my family will have to find a new accomodation for about a month. Is there a better/easier solution? Can we remove the water/moisture without removing the wooden floor?
