The solution in this situation

The solution in this situation and this applies to anyone who lives in a high-moisture climate that is subject to atmospheric pressure changes, is to purchase an engineered hardwood floor. Engineered hard wood floors, unlike solid hardwoods feature multiple layers of wood in a system designed to keep the wood from expanding and contracting in the manner it would in its natural environment. The result - floors that stay put, are even, and don’t creak when you step on them.
