I hardly ever go under the sink unless I need to grab a garbage bag.
When my ring fell down behind the sink, I had to climb under there to find it.
That’s when I realized that the kitchen sink had been leaking for some time. There were a lot of wet areas inside of the closet and I could visibly see water as well. After I retrieved a flashlight for a better look, I also recognized various spots that were moldy, however my spouse wanted to contact the insurance dealer, despite the fact that I knew they would tear out the cupboards and fill the home with dehumidifiers. It was 2 afternoons before Thanksgiving and I did not want the whole thing to be torn apart with 25 guests ready to attend our Thanksgiving brunch celebration. I took everything out of the cupboard under the sink and I fixed the leaking faucet. It only took a couple of minutes, so I really wish that I would have found the concern earlier. I localed a fan under the cupboard to dry the wood and I went to the hardware store to rent a dehumidifier. The hardware store rents lots of unusual equipment love air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and outdoor oil furnaces. I got what I needed for the project for $18 a afternoon. I ran the dehumidifier both afternoons before our Thanksgiving celebration and after that I ran the dehumidifier for various afternoons after the gathering was over, and our friends and family never knew there was a concern in their kitchen thanks to our quick thinking and handy skills.
