A few remarks on how to fix a squeaky floor. It is sometimes possible for a wooden floor to squeak after it has been installed and fitted. Some of the reasons for this are: the natural condition of wood, results from temperature changes, or from humidity levels.
How to reduce squeaking:
For most of the time such squeaking will not bother you as the floor just has to adapt to the new environment. However, if the squeaking is persistent and can really drive you crazy you can use the following: try to minimise the effect of friction by brushing the spaces between the panels/planks with a chalk. It is also possible to do the same using talcum powder.
If this does not help and you see that there is a friction between the wooden planks and the joists you can screw them together.
