In most cases the three wood flooring members (the joist, subfloor and finished hardwood) have separated, and the nails binding them are moving in the nail holes. A little dust in these nail shafts makes the boards squeak. That's why talc, wax and graphite offer a temporary solution. But why not try a permanent fix for your squeaky wood floors?
Well, the first thing to do, is to dry out the floor surface and more importantly the subfloor, so that the boards don't continue to warp.

Often when people have moisture in their wood floors, they do not know the cause of damage. Homeowners will even question the craftsmanship of the wood floor installer when they see warped floorboards.

If you have never experienced mold, you need to take necessary measures so that it will never occur. Mold is a mess and a health hazard! It is fungi. Mold eats and grows just like we do. A tree, even after it is harvested and turned into floorboards, contains fatty acids, sugars, starches, proteins and lipids.
