                  Be careful with the pull bar. I purchased a 7mm product and it can damage the are you have it pulling. I used an old rag under the bar to prevent damage. Other than that, an effective and useful kit

                  The small pry bar work great for those small places. I was very disappointed with the tapping block. It seemed to chip the laminate a lot more then I like. That being said this is not my first laminate flooring install and I switched back to my trusty rubber block.

                      Bits of the tapping block fell off within minutes of using this, and completely fell apart by the second row so I've ended up using a piece of wood instead. To be fair I've read the same about pretty much all tapping blocks. The pulling bad has a curve in it so it's not too great either but I don't have any alternative but to use it. Spacers seem to work well though.

                          A:

                          Floating laminate flooring is ideal over concrete slabs. Concrete must be flat and level with no more than 3/16" in 10' variance or 1/8" in a 6' radius. Concrete slabs also require a moisture barrier. A 6 to 8 mil poly sheeting moisture barrier should be laid for floating floors for an On or Below grade Concrete subfloor. Overlap seams 4-6" and tape with duct tape. Overlay perimeter 3-4" up wall. Then lay an approved underlayment for floating flooring (unless you have padding attached laminate).

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.
