Moisture lining under house damaged

    Not sure what the correct term is but I noticed warping and moister at a certain point on the laminate wood floor. Pulled up some a found that whenever some works were done on the house 15 odd years ago to change heating pipes, whoever did the work damaged the plastic lining beneath the concrete of the house. The heated pipes that run where this hole is heats up the ground and obviously the moister is rising up.

    The hole is about a square foot in size in total. Is there anything I can do to re-seal this properly? Who would be the tradesperson to fix this if it's not a DIY job?

    Photos please, but this sounds like the standard underlay and you shouldn't be seeing too much damp coming up from a normal floor.

    Show the underlay as well as the warping and underfloor in the photos if you can.

    A sq.ft hole? You can seen the membrane under the concrete??

    Sounds pretty bad as described. A photo would help.
