Water damage and laminate do not, unfortunately, mix well.
When you experience water damage, things certainly look a bit grim. You wake up one morning or come home one evening to a home that smells stale and looks as though a tornado has come through with water damage everywhere and you begin to question why you became a homeowner in the first place.

The unfortunate truth, however, is that there is some water damage that cannot be simplyUser Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. repaired and walked away from. One such item in your home that cannot be salvaged in the instance of water damage is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is different from hardwood flooring in that it utilizes a top layer that is made of paper. As we all know, water and paper do not tend to mix well together; water always wins. With laminate flooring, water damage ruins the floors the moment water touches the floor. There is no saving the floor in these circumstances, and the unfortunate truth is that no amount of restoration will return the floors to their original state.

While it is certainly frustrating that the floors have been damaged irreparably, the more frustrating and concerning aspect of the water damage is in the damage to the sub floor. While water damage to the laminates is certainly frustrating, the more difficult aspect of the work is in drying out the subfloor. The top level of a floor can be replaced relatively easily, but without the right steps, the floors of your home could experience and sustain permanent damages that are more serious than just damage to the laminate. Regardless of whether you can save the laminate flooring in your home, make sure you call in a professional restoration company to salvage your sub floor.
