If you do not have a carpet down you and the floor is just the floor boards it is just that the floor nails they have used have become loose. Buy some new floor nails and hammer down the places it squeeks. You should be able to see where the old ones are and hammer next to those. (you need to hammer into the floor joists). Use a hole punch to ensure the nail head is not raised. If you have carpet down then you can still do this but finding the joists is hit and miss. Becarfull and think about what might be under the floor, pipes etc.... If you hammer where current nails are in you should be OK.
Q:Do we get indoor floor lights that can be fixed to the floor?
Most any floor light can be fixed to the floor. The cautions: Is the home a rental? Are you on a concrete slab or a wood floor? Does the slab have hot water heat tubing embedded? You will be putting screws into the floor. Would your land lord allow it? A hot water embedded concrete slab can leak if you accidentally puncture one of the tubes. If all of the above are ok, here we go.............. Do you have access to wood working tools? ie. table saw, electric hand drill etc. Or a neighbor/ friend with? The base plates of the floor lamps could be drilled directly through the metal and then screwed down, this easiest. Can you live with this cosmetic damage to the light base? If not, decorative wooden blocks can be fabricated out of hardwood. Stained, clear coated, and or painted. You will want to table saw a rabbit notch about 3/4 inch to 1 inch long on one end of each block at a blade depth that is a little less than the thickness of the light base. This will help clamp the light base firmly to the floor when screwed down. Make three blocks for each light base. The tops of the blocks can be decoratively tapered and the edges rounded over with a router to give a pleasing profile to the finished product. Hope this helps. you can e-mail me through Yahoo Answers with additional questions.

Q:Cleaning nasty floor base.?
Not sure what you mean by base floor, is it wood or concrete or chipboard. You would have to be careful if it is chipboard or wood as soaking it could make it warp or shrink if it gets to wet. Trying a small area first is a good idea, then take it from there. A bucket of warm soapy solution and a deck scrubber if you have one preferably with a long handle or you will have to go down on your hands and knees, then rinse with luke warm water and a mop. Do small area at a time. Leave to dry thoroughly and see how it has turned out, may have to be done a few times to get the result you want. Hope this helps.
Q:What type of flooring is better in home with inside pets?
No floor is perfect. Here are some pros & cons to help you decide. There are several new carpets that guarantee against permanent pet stains.

Will not be scratched by normal toe nails If the correct finish is used, Look for aluminum oxide. Tile is a good choice, just be sure to seal the grout. In the wood look, consider a quality laminate. Or consider a new product from Armstrong called Fashion Plank. It's water proof, very hard to scratch. Looks really like wood.
