We had recently visited an old house which had hardwood floors in the
bathroom on the 2nd floor. Whilst taking a shower some water must have
splashed out of the shower curtain, and the wallpaper on the ceiling
on the first floor got damaged. I am just wondering as to what might
have caused water to go through the hardwood floors to damage the
Sounds like the hardwood flooring was "engineered flooring". That type
of flooring is prefinished so you don't put a coat of polyurethane on
it like regular hardwood flooring. the lack of that "sealer" coat
could allow water to leak between the slats.

That'll make any clean up down the road quite a chore. How about fixing the
problem and not worrying about the floor? The floor will survive a bathroom
with no leaks just fine. Fix the leaks, the floor is happy.
