Laminate Flooring Joint Swelling

drgriffi42481May 28, 2008

Flooring is only about 7 months old. A bag with free-flowing liquid was placed on floor. A little liquid leaked from bag and got on floor. Now there are a few joints that are swelling. Is there any way to reduce the swelling? Maybe by putting a cloth down with a warm iron on top for a while or some other remedy? Any help woul dbe appreciated.

Thanks.

Once the planks swell(corre blows up), there is little you can do to reverse it. Plank replacement is your only real option.
