We have several areas in our house where our wood floors are getting small gaps between the slats. It’s not just 1 area but all over the 1st floor. The picture below is what one of the gaps look like. Does anybody know what is causing this and how to repair/prevent it from happening again?

Thanks

Mine gap like that every winter and close back up in the summer. Cause is humidity.

Also the reason tongue and groove are just nailed on one side.

How old is the floor? Is this something that just occurred? Any changes in the house, a/c..humidifer...etc?
