Laminate flooring water damaged

Hey guys. We had laminate flooring installed in our townhouse about a year ago. Today while cleaning I’ve noticed there is some damaged boards, most likely caused by water. Just wanting to know the easiest way to go about repairing it.

 

Not too keen on ripping up half the flooring to reach that board. 

Cheers

@reecedicarlo Great to see you make your first post! I'll be waiting with anticipation for an answer on this one, as anything I can think of is going to end with subpar results.

Re: laminate flooring water damaged

The multi tool fix I can think of involving careful cutting the board out and gluing the trimmed replacement in will end up in the subpar class. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and fix it right the first time.
