This is a question many people ask when they have come home to deformed wood floors. The answer varies depending on what caused the damage, how bad the damage is and how long it has been since the problem started.
If the cupping is caused by humidity, they will most likely return to normal when the humidity has come down to normal for a couple of weeks, sometimes it takes a couple of months
If the cupping is caused by a water flood, they can be dried and returned to normal if action is taken soon enough. If water is puddling on your wood floor for 24 hrs or longer, your floors will most likely need to be replaced.
This was a hopeless case, replacement was required.
