Hello and welcome aboard!

The squeaks could probably be dealt with by adding screws thru the existing sub-floor, after removing the carpet & pad. Putting down an additional layer of subflooring, glued & screwed down over the existing one, and use a premium quality pad under the new carpet. HTH and Merry Christmas! :glocke:
