A waterproof laminate usually can't be covered in water for much more than one day. The manufacturer's guidelines need to be followed so damage does not occur. If there is a 30-hour waterproof warranty, water can be left on the floor up to 30 hours without staining or swelling. The general rule is that water needs to be cleaned up in a reasonable amount of time.
A laminate floor is usually a floating floor, so there is no attachment to the subfloor. Planks and tiles, designed to click and lock together, can be installed over some existing flooring as well as concrete. The subfloor needs to be solid, flat, and clean. Underlayment is placed beneath the flooring to help level the subfloor, reduce noise, and cushion and protect the flooring.
