footstep? If you live in such a home it is possible, in certain
instances, to get used to the noise. Somehow your brain seems to
block it out. It is even possible to sometimes cure squeaky floors.

not and should not tolerate squeaky floors. After all, preventing
squeaks in wood floors is as simple as falling off a log. Anyone

Squeaks in wood
floors can be traced to any number of causes. Perhaps the most
common cause is wood sub-flooring that is not tightly secured to
the floor joists. In many instances, the loose sub-flooring sits
slightly above the floor joist. When a person walks across the sub-flooring,
their weight causes the wood flooring to move down until it
contacts the floor joist. As the person walks away from that spot,
the wood flooring rises up to its original position.
As the wood sub-flooring
is going up and down, it slides past the nail shafts of the nails
that were used by the carpenter to fasten the sub-flooring to the
joists. The movement of the wood along the nail shafts produces
the annoying squeak.
Squeaks can also
originate from metal ductwork that delivers heated and air
conditioned air into each room of your new home. The installer of
the metal ductwork, if not careful, can install this sheet metal
ducting such that it gets into a slight bind. As you walk across
the floor, downward pressure on the ductwork can create the oilcan
effect and cause the metal ducting to squeak or pop.
