Some of John’s Handy Tips to help you along…

Squeaky floorboards are caused by loose boards rubbing against nails or each other

SOLUTION: Sprinkle talcum powder or flour if you must, around the board and sweep it into the cracks and a little extra on the nails. The powder will ease the friction between the boards and nails, hopefully, eradicate the squeaking. Don’t vacuum but wipe away the excess with a damp cloth.

To get a gloss finish that looks really good, wait for the first coat to dry completely then use 600 grade wet and dry paper with water over the surface. Wipe off the excess with a kitchen towel. The next coat will look almost like gloss. Do this again for a third coat that will look like glass.
