We have a 20 ye old home with white parquet floors. The house is located
over a crawl space in a warm climate. I believe the floor consists of
interlocking squares. Each square is made up of four smaller interlocking
squares. Recently in our bedroom floor stated to have small raised areas of
flooring. When you step on it flattens out then comes back up. As of today
we have long areas or seams of these raised up tiles, which flatten nicely
if pressured is applied but when pressure is removed it pops back up. It is
getting worse (larger area) each day.
Any idea what might be causing this or what to do about?
Do you know if the floor is newer thn than the house? If so, how new
Have you checked underneath to see if you've developed a leak and so may
have dampness seeping up causing the wood to swell just barely enough to
cause this? It is possible a pipe split and there might not be any other
obvious symptoms in a house like that at first.
The fact that it's getting obviously worse by the day, makes me think of a
split pipe and a recently split one. Go look? Tell us what you see?
