Help needed with warped Pergo Laminate flooring

I have Pergo laminate flooring in my guest bedroom - had some guests recently who got my floors wet and the edges have warped upwards. Any suggestions on getting it flat again?

Not a pro but I do believe you'll have to replace the warped pieces. Is it only a few pieces?

You can either replace with any extra pieces you might have or if it's possible to go and buy the same flooring (it's always nice to have extras for reasons like this) or if Pergo doesn't carry what you have anymore...

Find some extra pieces perhaps and hopefully like from your closet or somewhere hidden where it's not noticeable that you can pull it from and use those pieces to replace the warped ones.

Where in the room are the warped pieces?

Right next to the bed which is situated in the center of the room. Can the warped pieces be easily pried off?

Should be fairly simple. Not familiar w/Pergo but the ones you have are glueless? You should be able to remove your laminate flooring up to the point of where the damaged pieces are, replace and then reassemble them.

They are affixed with glue or some type of adhesive

How old is this flooring, and do you have more of the same flooring stored for this unfortunate problem?
