Soaked subfloor: Advice on what to do?
A huge storm rolled in over the weekend while I was out of town for the weekend(several inches of rain and hail). I actually have 90% of the roof sheathing done so majority of the house floor is fine but the end that was exposed got soaked. When I got back home, much of the section that is wet has black spots all over it.
I’m not sure if this is mold or just dirt/mud/some other substance. The likelihood of mold growing in 3 days seems low but there could of been some organic materiel on top of the wood to encourage growth. What do you guys think?
Anyways, what do you guys think my plan of action should be? Should I let it air dry out or (because it’s such a small section) use a skill-saw to cut out the exposed areas of plywood and replace with new pieces?
I have a few concerns
1) Will the subfloor dry out adequately under the bottom plate (since they are sandwiched together)?
2) Do I need to worry about my insulation underneath (Rockwool)?
