What can I do about this water?
This tile is in my split foyer. It was installed maybe 10 yrs ago. The house was built in 1979. Soon after I moved in, I had parquet (the rage then) put down and the tile was installed over that.
It's a small foyer, maybe 5' x 7' at most. Several months ago I started seeing standing water in the middle of the tiles after a heavy rain. It's usually a puddle much larger than this one. This one is about 5" x 6" and they're usually about 1' x 2'. It's not a huge problem because I just clean it up but how it got there baffles me. I never detect a path from the door to the puddle. I've put my finger on the grout lines to see if they feel wet and they never do. It's not coming from the ceiling. There's no sign at all of a leak there. I sent a photo of one of the larger puddles to my former and now retired handyman who's a genius at everything pertaining to home fix-it and he was baffled. I had another so-called handyman look at it once and he had no idea. Can anyone here suggest what's happening other than magic? 😊
