Floating floor squeaking

Q: We installed floating engineered floor [click in system] all over the house last spring. In winter time some parts of the floor squeak. After stepping on them few times just went away but then come back again.

It’s a new product we bought from store.

A: Some of these click floors, the cheaper ones, use a corresponding cheaper core that will swell with elevated humidity. Amongst the better ones are those from Torly’s. www.torlys.com.

Best I can offer is to buy a hygrometer from Radio Shack and keep the humidity in the home at 40% or less in winter and no more than 50-55% in summer.
