Question DetailsAsked on 8/16/2016

Who should we call to identify the root cause and fix the water damaged floor?

We have water damage on the hardwood floor in the living room. The impacted areas are

where the hardwood boards meet the dry wall/shoe molding which is facing the backyard

(not a shared dry wall). Moisture can be seen in between the gap of shoe molding and

the floor. Our home is a townhouse sitting on concrete slab so what's underneath the

hardwood is just concrete. The wall itself and the moldings are good and there's no

sign of damage. Not sure what could cause the water/moisture to accumulate there.

Update-> So we took out the quarter round molding in the impacted area and saw the floor was actually sweating in the area covered by molding.. It's dry in the gap between the tip of hardwood board and the dry wall. The moisture seems to sit on top of the floor. We were guessing could it be the AC temp was too low and the cool air condensed there (there's a vent on the ceiling above the impacted area)? Is this possible?
