I am having problems with squeaky hardwood floors. I am applying the baby
power treatment and it works in some cases. It appears to me that these
floor have been neglected for many a year.
We bought the house 2 years age and it has been a problem since then.
Is there any solution I can apply, that world inject moisture back into it,
ie liquid wax etc..
Any help would be appreciated.
My floors are squeaking like crazy and it isn't just one spot, half of the floor
squeaks. This is our second winter in this house. The 20+ y/o hardwood floors
been abused by previous owners and need to be sanded but that will have to wait.
Other discussions on this subject mention a special type of screw that people
to fix the floor from above but I know it's better to fix it from below. Thing
I have no idea how to do that.
Below this floor is the unfinished basement. I realize I'll have to take the
insulation down to get to the subfloor and that's fine but since a very large
of the floor is squeaking, where do I start from? Do I use nails or screws? What
Also, over the years, this floor has sunken in, and that's the area that squeaks
The special screws are called Squeeeeek No More (yes, 5 e's) mfd by
O'Berry Enterprises, 664 Exmoor Ct., Crystal Lake, IL 60014, (800)
459-8428. They aren't infallible but they sometimes do cure
squeeeeeks. They go right through carpet into floor joists, require a
power screwdriver, & are pretty easy to use. Brookstone used to sell
them but I think now a different catalog outfit sells them.
