Mold Under Cabinets From Leak?

We have wet wood under the sink cabinet and in the corner cabinet from the dishwasher. It stinks! The contractor removed the bottom floor panel and it was black and very wet. He sprayed all around with bleach. He told us to put fan to it so that it would dry. However it is very wet still. I worry about mold. The house is a rental. We do not know how wet it is under the wood of the sink and other cabinets What can we do or ask?

First of all, don't panic. This happens frequently. I just had the same thing happen to me. I got a few cans of disinfecting spray (like Lysol) from Dollar Tree and sprayed it all around. Also some puppy pads from CVS to soak up the dampness. It takes a lot of time to dry out. Leave the cabinet doors open to ventilate the area. Keep checking on the progress and change the puppy pads. Spray every day.

The beauty of renting is that this sort of thing is not your problem. Call your landlord, and insist that he deal with it.

My cousin was cleaning up his mom's house and found several areas where the floors were damp - he put down cat litter for a few days to draw the moisture out. I tried it on my kitchen floor where there's always some type of dampness. It seemed to work really well until the cats found it , moved the covering I had over it and thought they had anew litter box !
