I have heard you can sweep talcum powder into the floorboard cracks to quiet squeaks.

I heard that powder works too......you may also try grafite if there is space.....but if the floor boards are closely secured it may be tough to get anything in there.......you may also want to try WD-40 if the wood itself is sealed, if it's not the Wd-40 may stain the surface....

I guess I just assumed in my last post that you were dealing with a wood floor....but if it's not wood and it's covered by a lamanent then none of these solutions will work.....you could try finding the board that squeaks from the bottom up if you have access such as in your basement....a friend of mine had a squeaky floor and her husband located the loose board and secured it from the bottom to fix the squeak but becareful not to use anything that is too long or it may come through depending on where the problem lies and how thick you floor boards are........

Just put a small dab of glue in between the boards to stop the noise.

Leave the squeaky floor alone. You know where the squeaks are, but a burglar won't. It just might alert you to something in the middle of the night. Just my two cents.

Find that little squeaky spot. Pound a long nail, (the kind with no head on it) now pound it into the floor. No I'm no kidding. No one will even notice the nail. it works every time

Use talcum powder or baby powder, around the area of a squeaky floor board and sweep it into the cracks. Do not vacuum but do wipe up any extra with a wet cloth so no one slips on it. No more squeaks.

Help, I can't get to the boards from underneath and the cracks between the boards are sealed, so the talcum powder trick didn't work. What else can I do?
