Start by cleaning up the water or any other liquid(s) that has been spilled on the wood or laminate surfaces.If you see white stains or hazy type of stain on your wood floors, a personally tried and true method is to take care of it with some buffing, using automotive paste or even toothpaste.  Apply with a light cotton fabric.
