How Much Vinyl Plank Flooring to Remove Due to Water Damage

A home in the Five Mile Creek area of South Dallas had a sink leak that caused the need for water damage mitigation services.  Water seeped into the vinyl plank floor in the kitchen, dining room and living room. This can cause visual damage through bubbling at the seams or down the plank. The visually damaged area of course needs to be removed but anything more than that?

Once a piece is pulled up, the underside can be reviewed to determine if water is still existent, and the neighboring piece needs to be removed as well.  Planks should be continue to be removed until no more water is identified on the underside of the plank.  

Often, flooring in the entire room or possibly the entire continuous flooring area will need to be removed.  Flooring is constantly evolving and a style or color that is available today may not be available in a year.  Replacing a portion of the floor means matching needs to occur and that is typically an issue. 

In addition, the interlocking nature of vinyl plank flooring can make it challenging to just replace a portion.
