Here’s the thing about squeaky floors: it’s annoying, it’s driving you mad, and it might be because of a problem in your crawlspace. Among other things, a creaky floor is like your house telling you that something is wrong. The good news is that you can hear a burglar sneak into your house at night. The bad news? Your partner can hear you sneaking into the kitchen for a midnight snack.

More good news is that you can easily check your crawl space and fix it yourself. You’ll need to look for the area that moves whenever your floor creaks (so you might want to have someone up above to walk over the floors while you check). Usually, the culprit is a gap or loose floorboards or even a problem with the floor joists. Some of them are easy fixes, but sometimes you might need to call the experts.
