Cupping from humidity

Q: We put in a hard wood floor this February, 2008. Our room is 24 x 27. It has been really humid this past week and we have two places that are cupping. How can we fix this without tearing out the floor and starting over?

We do not have air in our house.

A: Buy a dehumidifier with a digital read out. One of these units that will handle about 3000 sq. ft. and you can set it to the RH you want the house to remain at. $300 Or so, it’s good insurance for your investment.
