Free float - wood plank sinks in/springs back up

I hired a contractor who recently installed a pre-engineered wood floor using the free-float installation method, with a foam and cork underlayment over ceramic tile. Everything looks great however I am now noticing that in one area, two wood planks (adjacent to each other) sink down/spring up when I walk over it.

Are there any suggestions on what could be done to fix these two problem areas?

I assume it is a Low spot in the floor this can be fixed with a tarpaper build up in the low area
