Wood is one of the most beautiful, "warm" and intimate materials when it comes to finishing the interior space of a home. Most often, wood is used for laying floors. Unfortunately, sooner or later, any wooden floor begins to emit an unpleasant creak. How can the owners be in such a situation.
The first thing to understand is why wooden floors creak. In most cases, this happens due to the deformation of the boards lying on the floor. For this reason, it doesn't matter whether the floor is new or old. This can happen at any time. As a result, the sound of the squeak constantly "hits the ears" and annoys others. Another reason for squeaking is the formation of cracks in the boards. A less popular cause is mold or mildew formation. What to do in such situations?
Note: also in some cases the floor may squeak immediately after installation. Most often this happens if the workers made mistakes.
The most reliable, but also the most time-consuming, method of dealing with a creaky floor is to disassemble the entire floor and reshape the floor. Of course, the squeak problem can be solved without such drastic measures. However, for this, it will first be necessary to reliably establish the cause of the unpleasant sounds.
So, if the reason for the creak is the gaps between the boards, then the issue is solved by sealing them up with talc or graphite powder. If the gap is large, then you can glue the rail with glue and install it there. The simplest and fastest way to eliminate crevice creaks is to plow through synthetic or linen cord. For reliability, it should also be coated with glue.
If the reason for the squeak is a loose fixation of the boards, then they need to be fixed again. The easiest way to do this is with screws or nails. However, first, each problem board will need to be crushed with something, putting something really heavy on it. In cases where the entire floor is dry, separate fasteners will not help. In such a situation, it is necessary to make plywood flooring. Each sheet is attached to the floor using the same screws or glue.
Continuing the topic cannon fat: why it can be used in a car and not only.
