Looking for a good python programmer to help with a project.

Eliminating floor or stair noises can be problematic when the space underneath is finished and you don’t have access to the floor joists or subfloor. When wooden floorboards are causing the noise, add a dry lubricant to the problem area.

Sprinkle lock lubricant, talcum powder, or powdered graphite into the joints between the floorboards. Then place a cloth over the boards and walk back and forth to work the powdery lubricant down into the cracks. This will reduce wood-on-wood friction between the planks and silence small squeaks. Finish by using a vacuum cleaner or damp cloth to remove any remaining powder from the floor.

If that doesn’t work, try spraying a dry silicone lubricant between the squeaky floorboards. After spraying, wipe off any excess lubricant with a slightly dampened cotton cloth or paper towel.
