Floor under the carpet creaks on second floor
I bought this house a couple of years back. This house is about 8 years old now.
Some portions of the floor on the second floor creaked before but now the problem has aggravated a lot. The whole second floor is carpet.
It creaks so bad, that when we try to tip-toe into our 4 month old's room while he is sleeping, we are scared we will wake him up as every step causes a lot of creaking.
How can we resolve this or what is the way out ?
If I get someone to do it, will they have to rip the whole carpet off (as in cut it) ?
