No success in fixing creaking carpeted stairs..any suggested solutions?

by provlima   Last Updated September 13, 2017 13:21 PM

I have staircase, plywood covered with carpeting, and have tried fixing annoying creak noises on several of its steps. As I have no access from below I tried by using one of those kits made for drilling thru the carpeted stair treads with breakaway screws. I drilled screws thru the top lip into the risers on the affected steps but have been unable to solve the problem. Has anyone had a similar situation and been able to solve it? Thanks for your help
