How can I fix water damage to laminate flooring?

My dishwasher leaked and the water went UNDER the laminate flooring. It was not a bad leak but once the water was removed the floor felt spongy. What can I do?

Unfortunately, your best bet is to have the flooring there replaced. Even if you just had the laminate removed, water dried, and fresh laminate applied, the flooring under the laminate is going to be stained and damaged, so it will look quite unsightly.

Today, however, many builders and roofing companies recommend rubber roofing or EPDM. You can purchase this type of roofing material in sheets or you can get it as a liquid, which is somewhat easier to apply.

These bathroom mats are treated with an anti-microbial agent to control odor causing bacteria. The water dam borders trap liquids, keeping floors dry and sanitary, while their raised surface keeps shoes dry. Urinal mats and toilet mats feature a heavy duty rubber backing that keeps them in place while the attractive borders and rounded corners give them an upscale appearance.

Laminate flooring is a beautiful, low maintenance, long-lasting flooring. There are several simple steps that you can take to keep your laminate flooring clean and to ensure that you get many years of service from it. Simply dust mop or vacuum with a soft brush or wood floor accessory to keep your laminate floor clean from dust, dirt or grit. A damp cloth or mop can be used without damage to the laminate flooring panels, but do not use excessive water. Dry the floor thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Blot up spills or water from wet feet or footwear immediately with a clean, dry cloth, sponge, or paper towel. Do not allow excess liquid to remain on the surface of your laminate floor. Do not use soap-based detergents, abrasive cleaners, or combined “clean and shine” products on your laminate floor. Do not use steel wool or other scouring pads that may scratch laminate panels. Do not wax or polish your laminate flooring. Do not steam clean or use chemicals that may damage the laminate flooring surface. For stubborn spots or stains on laminate flooring use acetone or nail polish remover on stubborn substances such as tar, asphalt, paint, or oil. Then wipe clean with a damp cloth.

When it comes to water damage, first you need to know if there are any leakages. Also, things have their own way of reacting with equipment. Laminating floors are of many types. You need to know how much water and cleaning will be applicable not to damage them.

Laminate flooring is water resistant but bot waterproof. If you spill some water on laminate flooring but promptly wipe it up, the floor will suffer no damage. If laminate flooring comes in contact with water, it tends to warp quickly. This warping will first be noticeable at the ends of the individual boards.

You need to replace it with new laminate flooring or your can install wpc flooring if you want a waterproof flooring.
