Usually ,as the house sattle and aged incliude the wether effect ,
wood in general will expand and contract,caused by cold and heat.
floors is the playwood nailed or scewed to the joices and the studs
so over time the nails or the scewes will loose its tightness.
so ,what you need to do is, pull the carpet and pad in sections if you can and inforce more screws from the plywood into the joices and the studs,
