Squeaky Floors under Carpeting
 
I have a problem finding joists under thick carpeting and thick padding. I want to eliminate the sqeaks with the SQEEEK NO MORE KIT. Looks simple, but no one mentions airconditiong/ heating ducts between the joists that interfer while "probing" for joists....So, the procedure is far more complex than the ideal situation with unfinished basements underneath....
Which joist finder is fool proof?

Not going to find them with a stud finder.
Going to have to peel the carpet back enough to find the nails in the sub flooring.
