leveling an installed floating wood floor


I have a nice floating wood floor. However a section of hallway (3X7 ft) does not have a level subfloor. I get a lot of flex and bounce. Can I inject expanding foam insulation between the floring and subflooring with any success?

You need to remove the laminate and level the floor and then reinstall the laminate.
You knew that, didn't you?
