There is one spot in the lounge room that when stepped on makes a creaking sound, we need it gone!

Airtasker may need to be able to access under our home (weatherboard house on stumps).

You need to determine where the squeek is coming from. Is it from board movement between joists under house, or is it coming from on top of the joist?

Need airtasker that is familiar with this sort of thing!!

Need job done tomor morn! 10.30am is ideal!

Use talcum powder. It'll silence the squeak. If you have carpet just either peel it back or pour some straight into the carpet and stomp it around. I had a two storey house and the flooring used to squeak and that's all I did. Stopped it for me. I've done it on exposed floor boards and vacuumed up the excess

Will try it! Thanks Mikey!
It's worth a shot and the cheapest option. Let us know how you go :)
Hi Karly, is there easy access under the house? If possible, please post photos during the day. Regards
Hi Karly, is there carpet over the floorboards? Regards

No carpet, just floorboards ☺️
