Water still seeping up from the seams

Q: Had quite a lot of water spill onto an area of my herringbone hardwood floor (less than a year old). The floor was wet vacuumed in less than 10 minutes, but some water was still seeping up from the seams. I used paper towels to soak up the rest of the water from the cracks. I already notice slight cupping in the boards.

It isn’t as “even” in that area. Will it flatten out in time as the moisture releases from the floor?

A: It might flatten out on it’s own. I’ve seen it happen more than once. If you have a dehumidifier and/or heater setting them up near the area may help speed up the drying.
