Handyman on Call

Can she flatten out factory finished wood planks?

Q. A few months ago I had a pinhole leak from a bathroom sink, which leaked through the living room ceiling and left water puddled on the floor. The floor is factory finished wood planks. I got the water up as quickly as I could, but in one section of the floor the planks curl up on the edges. Anything I can do to get them flat again?
