Get Rid of the Floor Squeaks

Q: My Townhouse is almost 30 years and I have a problem with very squeaky floors. I want to put in new carpets and the company doing the job told me that they will try to nail the floors, but they do guarantee that the noise will go away. Could you please help me to solve the problem?



A: Now that you are installing new carpet you have the perfect time to get rid of the squeaks. Use 2 inch wood screws to tighten the plywood to the floor joists before laying the new underlay and carpet.  If your carpet is already laid down, there is a product called Squeeeeek No More that stops floor squeaks from above the floor by going through the flooring (carpet, hardwood, vinyl, etc), fastening the subfloor and underlay to the joist.
