    Default Kitchen laminate worktop water ingress

    Hi guys
    Need some help please.
    At home we've evidently had some water get down between a joint in the laminate worktop and has started to lift/bubble slightly either side. Short of having the whole tops replaced, is there anyway of repairing it?
    As a short to medium term solution to stop it getting worse should I run a bit of silicon over it?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Is this not the kind of thing your home insurance should cover?

    yoo can try and remove the moisture with a tea towel and an iron over the top = but dependant on the laminate finish and its temp resistance if you over do it you will do more damage than good....

    as said a sealant and then pop something over the top to cover it up
