The creak of the laminate occurs due to its subsidence into the recesses of the base. Therefore, if the rough screed or flooring has even the slightest depressions, then over time the floor above them will begin to hold together. In this case, this void must be removed. This is possible even without dismantling the laminate.
What will be required:
- Syringe 20 cube;
- drill with a drill 3 mm;
- masking tape;
- mounting adhesive such as liquid nails;
- vacuum cleaner;
- boards – 3 pcs.;
- heavy load.

Laminate squeak repair process
First of all, we find the places where the floor creaks, and determine the center of the recess under them. Then glue a small piece of masking tape on top. Next, we drill the laminate through the adhesive tape, and remove the chips with a vacuum cleaner.
After that, we collect liquid nails into the syringe. The nozzle of the syringe must be inserted into the hole in the laminate, and the glue will be squeezed out.
Now you should leave the syringe in the hole so that it is closed, and stomp around it, thereby distributing the composition in the cavity. Depending on the size of the recess, it may be necessary to pour in the adhesive several times.
Then we remove the syringe, and lay it on both sides of the hole of the plank, placing them in parallel. On them we put the third board already across, and click on it. This design allows the adhesive to be given a precise plane, preventing bumps. As a result, a little glue should come out through the hole under load. If it does not squeeze out, then it is not enough, and you need to add it.
As soon as we are convinced that there is enough glue and the cavity is completely filled, we put the load on the boards. Do not remove it until the liquid nails dry.
After that, there will be no more creaking of the laminate.
