We discovered a small leak under the kitchen sink (one of the valves needed
to be tightened). We've fixed the leak, but the water had moistened the
cabinet bottom somewhat.
We've now dried all that up, and we cut a hole in the cabinet bottom, and
dried the area under that, cleaned it, and applied diluted Clorox bleach
What I'm wondering about is that that cabinet area under the sink still
smells like mildew. All of it, including the floor under the cabinet bottom
feels dry to the touch.
My wife feels like we should keep the cabinet doors closed, but I've read
that we should leave the doors open to get some air circulation under there.
I'm also thinking that we should keep some of the windows (just above the
sink area) open a bit to get more air.
What's the best way to get rid of this smell?
P.S. We have someone coming in to see if they think that we need to do any
replacements, but assuming that that is not the case, I'm wondering how we
get to removing the odor....
