Rotten plywood under the sink? Could be a sign of a long-term leak
Water leaks under kitchen and bathroom sinks are a common occurrence in homes. A small pipe leak that has gone undetected for a long time can cause major damage and create mold problems. It can also damage floors, subfloors, cabinets, drywall, insulation, etc. If the leak happened on an upper level, it can damage the ceiling and walls on lower level rooms.
If you start seeing water marks or discoloration under sinks that is a sign that water is getting in somehow. Regularly inspect the area under sinks, and around cabinets to make sure there are no new stains and the area is dry. You can purchase water alarm sensors online or at any hardware store. If water is detected by the sensors, it will start playing an loud sound and alert homeowners of the moisture.
