Hi,

During the last couple of weeks I started noticing small hairline cracks developing in the finish of some of the planks on my hardwood floors. I have prefinished brazilian cherry which I installed in a new home last Feb. Hardwood was acclimated and subfloor was totally dry when installed. After researching on the internet, I think the problem may be low humidity. I checked that with my top of the line cigar humidistat which said I had 45% in the house. It's fall in Chicago and we've had nice weather with no humidity for the past 2 1/2 weeks. I just put a humidifer (last night) throughout the hardwood area which raised the humidity to 52-53%. I figure I'll wait a week and see what happens. Can anyone help or give advice?? Again, the cracks are only in the finish and NOT between boards. Please help! Thanks, Jim
