Knowing how to install laminate flooring is somehow an important knowledge everyone should have. Laminate flooring is needed to replace your old carpet for some good reasons. One of them is an easy cleaning process. When using a carpet, you will have to work twice: cleaning the carpet surface and also what’s behind it. You know that dust is everywhere, right? But with laminate flooring, you can just need to clean it like you do with floors. Besides, it can make your house more beautiful.
To start with, pull up the old carpet. If the carpet is patched to the floor, you first need to cut it with a sharp knife or cutter. Also, remove the carpet padding and tack strips. After that, remove the baseboard and start installing new shoe mold all over the new flooring. If this is done, clean out the entire floor. Make sure there aren’t any blemishes or stains left. If the floor is clean already, you need to check for levelness. If you find that the level is enough, you can start measuring, joining the boards, and installing shoe molding. That’s how to install laminate flooring. Now you can do it by yourself and help others, too.
