- Identify loose tiles or strips of wood in the floor.Carefully walk around and try each one. If you want, you can mark the loose ones with a bit of masking tape, or other removable marking.
- Unless you can lift a given loose tile or board, punch a 1mm pinhole in it.
- Inject epoxy through the pinhole.
- Tap or knock lightly on the affected tile or board.You have enough epoxy when the hollow sound is gone.
- Stop injecting immediately if any epoxy emerges around the edges or through the joints of the tile.
- Leave it for epoxy to fully cure and harden.Weight the loose tile with a heavy object, if necessary.
- Scrub away any excess epoxy with a chisel.
- Fill any gaps and the pinhole with wood putty.
- Touch up the finish, if necessary.
- Use safety glasses and appropriate caution when using power tools.
- Read and follow the package instructions on the epoxy or glue you are using.
- Some newer floors, especially laminates, are intended to "float" a little. Make sure to verify that the floor you have is intended to be secured to the sub-floor.
