laundry detergent underneath laminate flooring

I spilled concentrated liquid laundry detergent in my laundry room and it ran by the baseboards and underneath the laminate floor. I can tell it is underneath some of the tiles because I can hear the squish when I step on the floor. What should I do? I was going to remove the tiles and try and clean them off but am not sure how to remove my quickstep floating floor?

One of the many joys of a laminate floor.
Remove the base board and start removing the floor.
Just lift it up to unlock it.
Left alone it's going to delaminate the flooring.
No way should laminate flooring ever have been used in a laundry, bath or kitchen area.

Joe is right. I hope you kept some extra pieces for replacement.
