Q: Heavy rain caused a huge buckle in our wood floor. The past two times it has done this, the floor flattened back out. This time, wood appears to be drying in the buckle form. What can I do?

A: It may look dry, but there may still be a lot of water beneath it. If this was near a wall, you could try removing the last board nearest the wall. If it doesn’t flatten, obviously you will have to have the area lifted and repaired. Fans, dehumidifiers and heaters may all help to dry it out more quickly.
