9 Laminate Flooring Issues & Tips And Tricks To Fix Them

0 11

When moisture gets trapped underneath planks of laminate flooring, it can cause them to swell or bubble up in certain spots. This can happen in many different situations, some unintentional like pet accidents, excessive water during cleaning, or even a leak in the house. In other instances, it’s due to negligence during installation, like moisture being trapped in the subfloor or improper underlayment. If your planks are bubbling, you might need to completely replace the whole set, depending on the cause and severity of the damage.

However, if the damage is contained to just a few spots, it is possible to replace only the impacted planks. You only have to use a saw once, relying mostly on a chisel and pry bar with these step-by-step instructions from Jones Knows on YouTube. Use the tools to pry up the planks one by one. Don’t be afraid about breaking the boards when they come out, as you will just throw them away anyway. Once removed, slide the replacement planks in, often at an angle, for a snug fit. When sliding in the last board, remove the locking system from one side(with a saw this time) so it clicks in easily.
