Post box size hole in floor under carpet

Postby Stevorio » Thu Jul 23, 2020 8:45 pm

Hi,

Just uncovered a post box size hole under carpet. Obviously man made goes down about 1/2 metre and seems to carry on under floor. Firstly does anyone know what this might be for? And can it or should it be filled in, im planning to cover living room with laminate flooring.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi stevorio
Can only guess that your home used to have hot air heating. Block it off and laminate over the top.
