large, soft areas in newly laid tongue & groove floating floor

I just had an entire house done with engineered t & g. First we cleaned the concrete, and then laid down the foam underlayment that came with the floor. The wood was laid and glued together. Now that several rooms are done, there are several 'soft' areas where, obviously, there were low, uneven areas in the concrete. Bummer.
So, obviously, I should have leveled first, but didn't. What can be done now, after the fact? Will the floors drop some and settle in? Will putting heavy stuff on top of the floors for some time help them to settle? Can they be somehow ‘nailed’ down in just a few places? Or is it hopeless? Obvioulsy, I could take the floor out and re-level…..

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks- David
