The floor may start squeaking over time

In old houses or apartments, floors can develop squeaks over time. This annoying noise can become so loud that it interferes with concentration and disrupts sleep.

There are more radical methods to eliminate floor squeaks, such as dismantling and reinstalling the flooring. However, OBOZREVATEL has discovered an interesting and simple life hack that can quickly solve this problem.

Why the floor squeaks 

There are several reasons why an old floor starts to creak, including:

  • Deformation of the floor structure.
  • Deterioration of the structure.
  • Insufficient fixation of the components.
  • Wooden boards may rot over time.

A simple and effective life hack

Experts recommend trying to eliminate floor squeaks by using ordinary baby powder. However, it's not enough to simply sprinkle it on top of the floor. Using a brush, you should work the powder into the existing cracks and holes.

The main goal of this method is to fill all the free spaces between the boards. Once the structure is well fixed, the friction between the components should stop, and the floor will cease to squeak.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL talked about the main tips that will help to effectively clean the floor to a shine.
