Adhesive failure on concrete

Adhesive failure could be a result of not using the flooring manufacturer's recommended adhesive, improper subfloor preparation as well as vapor emissions or moisture in the concrete. Regluing loose boards will not assure you that the new adhesive will not fail, particularly if the adhesive failed as a result of moisture.

I had the same problem. My floor has nice, black, beveled seams and I was able to drill a small hole in the seam and (this is somewhat unconventional) using a cake decorators writing tip stuck on the end of the tube of ahesive caulk (White Lightning Adhesive caulk, clear) I simply squeezed caulk into the hole and it filled in the gaps under the floor. Then I used black paint and touched up the little holes. If you don't have seams like mine, it would be more difficult. I actually asked a flooring specialist if this was okay before I did it, and he said it is used quite often when the adhesive lets go.
