Who do i call to check out water leakage from my kitchen ceramic tile floors?

I just noticed that on the floor near our sink/dishwater, water is coming up from the ceramic tile floor. when i wipe it and clean it up, water comes up. Who do i call to fix it? a plumber for the leak, but who do i call for the floors to make sure there is no mold.

The plummer would be a good place to start, go from there and see what kind of damage has been done.

    If you just started to notice it leaking call a plumber and for the flooring you should maybe call the person or company that laid the tile. Because it will have to be broke up to see what damage is underneath it but if you just started to notice the water it could just be from the dishwasher and you shouldnt have any water under your tile if the tile job was done correctly!

    First, Try to find the source of the leak. It seems to be the dishwasher or the trap under the sink which is very common & easiest to fix.
    I dont think the mold is going to be a serious problem. After the repair, clean well with a disinfectant / clorox bleach product.

    it look like you need a remodler, they can re tile, re fix the pipe, and check for mold, i would guess there no mold.
    but best check any way , all you have is a leaking pipe

    Who U gonna call? Moldbusters!

    Many carpet stores also install tile. Look in theYeloow (or Yellow) pages for floor & tile stores. Then there are just tile stores. Look for them too. However, it may be hard to tell if there is mold until everything dries out. If there is a severe mold problem, you may smell it before you see it. If the leak is new, mold is doubtful. If it has been recurring through the years, then ??

    If the ceramic tile floor was laid the way I see many ceramic tile floors done, you may have to rip it all up. I have found that most people who do not know the right way to install ceramic tile seem to insist on tacking down luan plywood with about six tiny nails and tiling over that. If this is the case, the wood will eventually swell and buckle, and the tiles will pop loose, and yes, you will get mold under the tile. At that point the only solutioon for the floor is to rip it all up and get it done properly. As for the leak, if water is coming up through the grout lines, you have to wonder if it is seeping in along the edge somewhere under the dishwasher or whether there is a pipe under the floor that is leaking. If you have access under the floor, look to see if you can spot anything from below. In any event the source of the water leak has to be found and fixed. If water is standing underneath the tiles and if a plywood underlayment was used, you can count on having mold develop under the tile.
