Dishwasher Leak on Wooden Floor

The customer began to notice some buckling in their wood floor and called The Dry Guys to determine where the moisture was coming from. Using a thermal imaging camera and other meters, we were able to point the customer to the dishwasher as the source. While the wood floor was beyond the ability to dry in place, the sub floor and areas of the basement that were affected could be dried saving the cost of replacement.
