Pipes Can Be A Reason:
At time pipes are small and when water gets distributed, it causes a banging sound or screeching sound from the faucet. This usually happens in new houses, where the piping is quite small. In case you are living in an old home, there might be a problem of mineral build up. This can cause restrictions in the flow of water. In any situation, you might not be able to solve the problem.

You might not be skilled or knowledgeable enough to understand the problem. In such a situation, you will need help of expert professionals. If your faucet problems are fixed, it is possible to keep away the sound.
