Help! Noisy Ceiling


I live in an apartment where the ceiling creaks/snaps/pops like a 300-year old wooden boat; it is alarming and can wake a person from a dead sleep. I understand that most solutions are cost prohibitive for the owners but I am wondering if spray foam expanding insulation can be inserted into my ceiling through small holes in the Sheetrock? Would this help alleviate the issue even?

I really love my apartment except for this intolerable noise of my ceiling, which of course, is not the fault of my upstairs co-renter by any means.

I love you guys.

Re: Help! Noisy Ceiling

Have you talked to a contractor about this? Or just try to find those responsible for installing the ceiling, I think the issue is more complicated that the spray won't do the job...
