Hello guys,

Last spring we had a leakage, the water was coming in where the slide touches the wall. There was a bit of water, standing between the wall and the floor (front of the trailer).
I fixed the leakage, replaced the insulation (from the bottom), cleaned the mold. It wasn’t too bad.

The problem now, is that the floor a bit uneven, next to the leakage place. I don’t have a way to even out the floor. I will need to remove the linoleum and somehow put it back…

Question, is there a reason to remove the linoleum? Can I leave it as is? Can we breathe it (I am guessing there is a mold under the linoleum..)?

Thank you!

The uneven issue makes me think that the wood has swelled and not dried out completely. If that is true the damage will get worse in time. I don't know of any way to be sure without removing the floor covering.
