Ilive in a two story home. Recently the toilet tank overflowed and drenched the carpet and padding. We tried to dry the carpet with fans to no avail. After four days we noticed a meldew smell and decided to pull up the
carpet and padding. How do we know if the wood under the carpeting needs to be replaced? Is there a solution we can put on the wood to prevent mold and meldew? Would sanding the wood surface help?
