I have wooden floors as well. There are gaps every once in a while along the edge. If that's where they are don't worry. That's so the wood can expand and contract. On my floors along the edge they have put thin quarter of a circle molding arond the edge. They attached to the wall by the base of the floor, not to the floor, so it could expand. It hides the gaps!! I talked to a friend of my in Perth and she told me the same thing. Hope you have luck with the misses.-- Heather P.
