This is driving me potty. Every day, and at random times, I am hearing a grating/dragging kind of noise which I think is coming from upstairs.
We have a lounge/diner and it sounds to be coming from above the dining area, which is beneath the second bedroom (which has laminate flooring). That bedroom is not in use, other than when my son comes home for the weekend occasionally.
It sounds a bit like a grating noise, or as though someone is dragging a wooden legged chair across a wooden floor (think back to schooldays and someone standing up and pushing their chair backwards with their knees).
If I go upstairs when I hear it, it stops. I can't work out where it's coming from.
Last year, we had a seven month problem with mice, but even at the height of the infestation, I never heard more than scratching/scrabbling noises, so I don't think it is a return of the mice. I've certainly not seen any other signs of them.
I'm getting so paranoid now - thinking something like a Death Watch Beetle infestation is crunching my house up and I'm going to come home from work one day to just a pile of dust!
From my poor description, can anyone offer any ideas as to what this noise can be? Or how we can track it down? I can't call a pest controller to come and listen, because it is just random times - no pattern to them.
