Easiest way to fix squeaky floors in old house
Hi hope everyone is doing well. I’m putting down laminate flooring on my second floor 100+ year old home. I was originally going to use something called squeak no more, it was on a show of this old house, I actually have the kit. You drill long screws into floor and then snap off above carpet. However I watched a video where a plumber said I wish people would stop drilling these long screws down because people are busting pipes and wires. I can’t see the floor underneath so made me rethink what I was doing. I’m going to rip up carpet to subfloor. What is safer way to do this? Shorter screws?
