Help....wood laminate floors popping up

10 years ago

Home is 1976, two layers of vinal flooring and laminate wood on top. We had leak from ceiling that flooded bedroom and hallway. The day of leak, turned water off, called company to dry floor and had plumbing issue in ceiling fixed. Had flooring company out, they tore up laminate wood flooring and all vinal, all the way down to concrete floor. They did a moisture test, found moisture, and then let floor dry for a week. Did another moisture test and found low moisture but said ok to proceed with new flooring. They put down some moisture barrier and then layed laminate wood flooring. Now, a month later, two soft spots on floor. I called flooring company and they say, moisture, must have a leak but turned off water at meter and meter not spinning so no leak. We never had a problem with floor until over head leak and a licensed plumber fixed that, that problem has been resolved and not causing moisture. Any suggestion on what we should do....I am very worried that we have a major issue here and not sure what it could be. By the way, the test that they did when they were called back out, they said is a new test and cost them 700.00 and that test they drilled into the floor and test came back within minutes that it was at 80. Please help, someone
