Q: How can I stop my floors from squeaking?
A: The only fail safe way to do this is to remove the floor, secure the sub floor, or screw down plywood sheeting, then install the hardwood floor. If it is only a few areas, there are also injectible adhesives, whereby a small hole is drilled through the floor, the adhesive is injected, which then expands into the gap beneath, stabilizing the floor to the sub floor.
