Answer:

Fixing Laminate Flooring
If it's warped, there's not much you can do besides replace the slats. In general, laminate is fairly resistant to spills, but it's still wood, and a lot of laminate flooring is just snapped together rather than glued and sealed like a true hardwood floor. If large amounts of moisture gets down into the cracks and into the unsealed part of the flooring, then it's going to potentially warp, especially if it doesn't get cleaned up right away... which is why most of the time, the packaging has very specific cleaning instructions. Laminate doesn't mean waterproof (if anything, it means cheap, to be honest).
Laminate flooring is the most overrated stuff on the market...no one tells you about how it warps with water, it is not nearly as scratch resistant as you are led to believe, and no matter who says what, it does NOT look real. Your floor is lost, sorry, but the liquid will just keep traveling and more and more of the floor will lift.
