    Solid hardwood, 3/4" thick, if the warping isn't too bad, could be sanded and refinished. If it was mine I would have a pro take a look. Sanding using a drum sander is best left to pros because it is easy to ruin the floor. Your professional will be able to evaluate the damage and make a recommendation. If you have something else, like a laminate, you should start a fund to replace the floor.

    On a 'wood' floor, Put a fan on the floor for a few days to help air dry, depending on how saturated it may level ond overtime. If it's a laminate and the subsurface swelled to is probably ruined and should need replacing

    We were told to let it sit after drying it as much as possible. The wood on our floor uncurled after a few months.
