my MH is haunted! - Posted by Anne_ND

I just recarpeted a 3/1 MH that I repossessed (talk about amenity creep!). They finished today. Right before about 8 people showed up to look at the house I found a wet spot about 18" in diameter in the living room about 2 feet from the wall. I was in bare feet (new carpet = no shoes) and there was enough water that I got that sploogy feeling (not just damp). Sort of like when you’re walking in a dark house and you hit a place where the cat has thrown up. Really gross.
Okay, so there’s no cat in this house, and I have no idea where the water has come from. The roof was sealed last fall, and the floor was dry this morning when the carpet went down. We had a heavy rain 1.5 days ago, but none since this morning. There’s no sign of old or new leak on the ceiling or wall. Can water migrate UP through a floor?
I was vaccuuming up the little carpet shreds, so when people arrived I just put the speed vac over the wet spot so no one else would walk on it.
What could it be?
