Leak under flooring on slab foundation

I have a laminate floor on a cement. In one spot on the floor is there is a very slight leak. It has cused the flooring to buckle a bit. It is not very noticeable. I am wondering if there is any way to seal the leak.

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the forums.

You are asking us if you can fix a water leak below the wood in a cement floor ?

How could that be done ? You' need to pick the floor up to see the leak and then it would be pretty hard to do anything with it.

Guessing the missing words should have been "slab foundation"
How old a home?
Plumbing ran through the slab?
About where in the floor is this water showing up, outside wall, middle of the room.
No matter what that flooring needs to come out ASAP because by now there's mold forming under the flooring.
