Is Bamboo flooring noisy or squeaky?
Correct installation of bamboo flooring is a must. These floors aren’t quite like carpet, but it doesn’t make any kind of squeaky noise.
If you are worried of soft noise produced by it, then you can soundproof underlay. These are useful supplies in for any upstairs fitting.
The main reason for the noise is, unleveled sub-floor. Before installing it, you need to correctly prepare the sub-floors. Check whether it’s flat or dry. An uneven sub-floor, won’t allow bamboo planks to rest solidly. Instead, it will put them under extreme pressure, making them cause creaky noise.
Incorrect nailing or loose nailing may be another factor. So, we always recommend our customers to consult profession floor fitter.
