    Welcome Jessica

    What type of tile?

    How much water on floor?

    If floor was under water, how long?

    The best way would be to remove cabinets and dry floor.

    If vinyl tile and still secure to floor, then water probably did not penetrate under it.

    Use wet vac to suck up water. Spend extra time at cabinet kick plate. A dehumidifier will help if u can seal off room.

    If tile are loose,remove loose tile. Use hair dryer to dryer area where tile was. Reinstall tile with clear set adhesive.

    If ceramic tile,water may not have penetrated to sub floor. U should be fine.

    Good luck

    Keep fans on and blowing. Moving air will help dry out where you cannot see or get to.
