Don't assume a squeaky floor is something you're condemned to live with. A squeak in the floor is easy to repair, and one product that makes it simple is Squeeeeek No More, a kit that works on carpeted, vinyl and hardwood floors.
Home improvement experts have traditionally recommended repairing creaky floorboards from underneath. That leaves upper floors up a creak. Your grandparents might have advised using talcum powder, liquid wax or powdered soap between the floorboards of that hardwood floor to stop it from squeaking. Squeeeeek No More, on the other hand, gets you on top of the problem. All that's required is a power drill and the hardware provided in the kit.
Squeaks occur when shrinks and gaps develop around different flooring elements -a nail meant to fasten the floor comes loose and rubs on the sub floor, or wooden planks loosened from the joist below them rub against one another.
Squeeeeek No More works on carpeted floors by locating the joists from above the floor allowing you to drill through the carpet into the joist where the squeak lurks. A screw tightens the floor planks back onto the joist without ruining the floor or forcing you to go underneath it.
An alignment fixture features a screw gripper on one side that snaps off the screw head. The screw will break off below the surface of the floor, leaving no visible hardware. The squeak is gone and no dangerous nails or screws stick out of the carpet.
Squeeeeek No More also works on stairs and thick carpet, and is safe to use in new homes where builders are constantly called back to remedy creaky floors. Doing away with creaky floors is essential when it's time to sell your house.
Squeeeeek No More is a good choice for nurseries and bedrooms. Parents with babies or small children will appreciate giving their little ones a good night's rest, free from loud creaks. (And you'll finally be able to get to the fridge at midnight without waking up the entire household!)
