Floor Creaking

Have developed some creaking in the floor around and on the steps going up to BR. Anyone had this and what was the fix?

Had to add supports underneath on mine, it only had a couple of staples supporting the back edge.

Yes, our FL HAS THE PROBLEM GOING UP to the living Room. Top step and about 2-3 steps into room. Most annoying!

Try some baby powder. Seriously, it works. Just sweep it into the cracks and remove the excess.

we had that on a previous two story home, but our solution may not work for you...

it was carpeted, so they found the plywood underlayment was not down on the joists and any steps on it would move the ply...
so they brushed back the carpet fiber just enough to get under the strands and put screws down into the rafters... stopped all the squeaks !

Top step was framed out on outer edges & stapled with 2 arms going from above to the step, nothing from step to the floor, basically just hanging, added supports under step frame & screwed in place, very poor design as neither of us are little tiny folks, had I not supported it one of us would've ended up in the basement.

Travelin, did you access from the top or the basement? Looks like steps should come apart easily from the top.

Went behind the wall in the basement, but just noticed you have an RL, mine is a FB so the step is in the center, yours will most likely be behind all that spider web of ductwork.
