What if the mammal is not very intelligent. I got more than a few of those around me. Some real slack jawed types. Don't know if their noses work, maybe along the line of "I's don smeelled that before, jist kant place it".

I would suggest getting the floors dried out really well and they may fall back into place and you will be happier than starting a huge floor fix.

It can take up to a year to know how they will look (go through a winter and a summer).

It really does depend on how they are installed. PM me if you have any questions.
