Does the floor have room to expand at the edges of the room? (far left and right sides of the room in question)

Welcome to the forums.

Is that peeling or buckling ?

Laminate flooring?
Installed in a basement, or any area area where there's a chance it got wet?

That may be a towel hanging there, a bathroom?

Sure looks like swelling from getting wet.

Moisture would be my guess too.

Also look at the overall finish on the surface.
Looks like hard water spots or mold.

Found the issue - this is the T fitting in the kitchen sink cabinet that was making leak. Need to get the plumber in to fix. Wondering if I could leave the flooring until summer or there is a chance of mold to grow under it?
