Since moving into our house 5 years ago, we have spilled a large amount of water on our kitchen floor a few times. When this happens, the water leaks into the floor boards and drips all the way into our basement.
Based on where the dripping is occurring, it seems that the source of the leak is where the ceramic tiles meet the cabinets in one corner of the kitchen. There is not an incredibly noticeable gap here, but it does look like it may not be sealed properly.
Other than not spilling water, what is the best way to fix this?
Is it typical to seal around the edges of the cabinet with caulk or some other sealant?
Any specific recommendations?
