Spotting Subflooring Issues

The first step in repairing subflooring issues is to spot the signs of damage. Some common indicators of subfloor damage are spongy or uneven flooring, creaky or noisy floors, and visible dips in the floor’s surface. Additionally, unexplained mold or mildew growth could be signs of moisture buildup within the subfloor. These issues can be caused by a variety of factors, including water damage, insect infestations, or aging floors.

Investigating Subflooring Damage

Once you have identified possible subflooring issues, the next step is to investigate the cause of the damage. Check for any leaks or moisture buildup, as this is a common cause of subfloor damage. Additionally, check for any signs of termites or other insect infestations. If your subfloor is made of wood, there is a possibility for termites to munch through it. Once you have identified the cause of the damage, you will be able to make a more informed decision on how to proceed with repairs.

Repairing Subflooring Issues

The way you repair subflooring issues will depend on their severity. In minor cases, like simple dips in the floor, filling with the self-leveling compound may be enough to fix the problem. However, in more severe cases, like large holes or significant water damage, you may need to remove and replace sections of the subfloor.  Contact Granite Bay flooring experts On Point Flooring, to take care of the job for you.

 Maintaining Subflooring Health

While subflooring issues are not entirely avoidable, maintaining your subfloor’s health can help prevent any significant damage. Therefore, it is essential to have your flooring system inspected regularly by a professional who understands subflooring issues. Additionally, ensure that any leaks, spills, or other sources of moisture are cleaned up promptly to avoid moisture buildup issues that can damage the subfloor.
