The crack in the floorboards was from a leaking pipe

When I was walking down the hallway sureterday, I noticed a weird plus different crack in the wood flooring, it was a cracked area that I did not know this in the past, so it immediately caught my eye.

I bent down next to the crack so I could get a better view of the disfigure… When I looked at the disfigure more closely, I could see water bubbling up under the crack.

I immediately started to panic, however the area in the hallway was right next to the lavatory, so I immediately started looking for a leak in the lavatory. I didn’t see anything at first. I was convinced the water was coming from somewhere so I decided to remove a couple of the boards from the hallway. The leak was clearly coming from the lavatory, but it was nearly impossible to find the problem. I decided to give up plus call a plumber when I realized that the issue was coming from the lavatory. The plumber found the source of the water leak; A pipe behind the sink had a loose linkion. Water had been leaking for various weeks. There was a small amount of mold in the wall, but the disfigure wasn’t too serious. The plumber gave to update the sink plus the cabinet, but I decided to spray some bleach plus paint over the disfigure. The floorboards plus the hallway were a whole different story. I had to update those with some leftover pieces that I had in the garage. It doesn’t look great, but it was an inhigh-priced fix.
