Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show. Here’s a question from our Nov. 23 broadcast: No one wants a squeaky floor! Unfortunately for Mary-Beth, every carpeted floor of her two-story home is creaking and squeaking with every step. Mary-Beth says she was planning on having new carpeting put in soon.
