                  The kit was not very useful or durable. I didn't use the spacers they keep sliding and the tapping block chipped 4 pieces of my flooring before it broke and wasn't any good by the second box of flooring. The pulling bar was useful in the tight spots. With it had a larger lip to hit.

                              Comments about Dream Home Laminate Installation Kit:

                              I was not happy with the install kit. The block used for setting the boards together broke into after the first couple of rows of flooring. I had to make a jig from a scrap piece of flooring to complete the floor installation. Although the bar for the last piece in each row was very helpful and worked great, I can't recommend purchasing this product to anyone.

                                I installed Nirvana laminate flooring. I bought your companies cleaner and application mop. I have 1800+ sq. ft. to clean. It is very demanding covering that much area when you are 70 yrs. old. I also use a professional dry mop to dust the floors daily. Can you recommend an easier way of cleaning it?

                                  You are doing the right thing, however the cleaner is only necessary about once or twice a month.

                                  For general cleaning a swiffer type system works best. Not one that sprays the floor however. Lightly damp is fine but never soak or flood mop your floor. Do not use steam mops. Have a no shoes policy as much as possible. Use felt pads on all furniture. Sweep often.
