Silence a Squeaky Floor

If you live in a slightly older home, squeaking floorboards are probably part of your house's daily sounds. Most squeaks in the floor are caused by slightly shifted floorboards that rub against one another. So take the time to walk around your floor to identify the location of the squeak, and see exactly which floorboards are the noisy culprits.

Once you've located the squeaking planks, drizzle a little bit of craft glue in between them, making sure to wipe excess glue away with a damp rag and let it dry overnight.
