How can I fix the large gaps in my kitchen floor boards?

The floating wood laminate flooring in my kitchen has several noticeable gaps between some of the floor boards. Unfortunately, some of these boards extend under the kitchen cabinets so I can not easily re(move) them to fix the problem. Any ideas how I can get rid of the gaps along the edges of the floor boards?

Heated Laminate Flooring Feasibility

We're removing carpet from our Elmira, New York, home, which has cement flooring. I know that laminate flooring "floats" to allow for expanding and contracting, and that they also have a cushioning sheet under them. Is it feasible to have a heated floor under the top quality laminate flooring we plan to use?

Humidity Problem After New Windows Were Installed

We just finished installing new windows in our house that was built in 1968. Ever since then, I have noticed what appear to be higher humidity levels on the bottom floor. It is concrete but most of it is above ground, but not all of it. I am wondering, now that we have new windows, is it perhaps keeping in more moisture than before creating more humidity? We have laminate flooring over the concrete and it has not been sealed because we never noticed a mositure problem. Is it possible that the unsealed concrete is creating this problem and is sealing it the right thing to do? I have concerns because Ive read in other places that sealing concrete can cause moisture build-up and in turn cause foundation settling....any information you can offer is much apprec iated. Our home would be extremely hard to retro-fit for an air exchange system.
