Ruined Laminate Flooring
They don't mix.
Water and laminate flooring don't mix.
For all the great qualities and looks of laminate flooring, it's one nemesis is excess water.
It just doesn't take it well.
Water laying on a laminate floor can cause blistering and separation of the materials in some types of laminate. Also the floor can rise or heave up in places with some types of materials.
Having padding underneath the flooring, often referred to as a "floating" floor (the irony) creates a sponge affect holding water/moisture. Many times water will still squeeze out from under the floor in some areas where one steps after initial water extraction of the floor.
Removal of the floor as part of the water damage restoration is usually the only answer.
