Forum Title: Hardwood - Creaking Along A Few Seams
Hello, I have a creaking issue along several seams of my hardwood floor. It doesn't bother me much, but my downstairs neighbor hears it much worse than I do (in fact, I went down to her place and, have to admit, that noise would drive me crazy after awhile). Anyway, I am hoping to avoid something radical like replacing the hardwood laminate with W2W carpet, or even having the whole thing relaid. A simple solution recommended to me was to work graphite in along the seam, but that didn't work (it only served to discolor my floor). The flooring is the tongue-and-groove type. If anyone has a minimally-invasive solution (other than graphite), I would be very grateful. Thanks for your consideration!

You could try working in talcum powder into the joints. It would be temporary but then do it again. Daris
