    What makes a wood floor go creaky/noisy?

    What makes a wood floor go creaky/noisy and how can it be fixed? Is it something to fix DIY or should I hire a joiner?

    "Could be a number of things but in my opinion/experience, it's caused by planks rubbing against each other.

    Perhaps they have split by the nail but most likely, they've expanded. Are there any hot water pipes near?

    Initial investigation can be done by yourself. You may then find it's a simple fix."

    "Typically, a squeaky floor is caused by your flooring wood trying out and shrinking. As you walk over the floor, the boards rub against each other or slide over nail shafts to make a racket of squeaks and creaks. Basically wear and tear over time."
