Sub Floor drainage issues can sometimes be quite easy to resolve. Water may be backing up from a blocked drain or water may be coming from an over watered garden. You may have other plumbing issues such as a broken water pipe or a leaking hot water system. Solutions may vary from very minor plumbing repairs up to massive excavations. Under floor drainage issues can appear and then disappear quite quickly. Underground Springs can reactivate even in the smallest amount of rain. Water may even be coming from a neighbouring property.
