    Comments about Dream Home Laminate Installation Kit:

    The kit comes with everything you need for installing the floor. It is designed to be simple, handy, and protects the connecting lips on the planks. I have installed several floors using this kit and wouldn't even consider using anything else. It is a forever tool, once you buy it it will last through more floors than you would ever install.

      I recommend getting this kit. Our house has plaster and lathe walls and the spacers did not work due to the large gap between the previous floor and the wall.

      Comments about Dream Home Laminate Installation Kit:

      This is a wonderful kit for a beginner. But if I was going to do more then one room I would buy a better hitting block. The hitting block by the end of my room started to chip off. But I LOVED the spacers!!!!!

                      Some pieces did not seem to lock in as well as others, so we had to move them a little further away from the last piece that went down then tap it into place. The video I watched recommended tapeing 2 of the wedges from the installatin kit together, I would suggest using just 1.

                      The store in Rivergate/Madison Tennessee was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks

                                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).

                                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.
