As long as the existing vinyl sheets aren't embossed too deep, then you can install your new vinyl planks over it without having to worry about telegraphing, or it replicating the pattern.

However, if it is deep (more than 1/4") then you will be leveling embosser to do the trick of leveling everything so the new planks won't experience telegraphing.

Can large appliances, like a washer/dryer, frig and stove be placed atop the flooring, or does the installation just go around the appliances??

I am interested in using this flooring in my kitchen, laundry room and bathroom. I read that it was not recommended to put heavy appliances on top of the installed flooring and I could not see any reference to that in the installation instructions. How do you install in the kitchen. Do you go under say an inch or two under the appliance, so that it appears to go completely under the appliance? Could you install under the appliance?

Thank you for your interest in Allure Plus Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring. You should not use pinesol. You should clean with a quality vinyl floor cleaner or mild soap and water with a damp sponge mop. Don’t wax the floor, don’t seal the floor, and don’t use any wood care product on the floor as these can leave a film that traps dirt. Do not use any steam mop as Allure is sensitive to heat. We recommend use Armstrong Once 'N Done, available here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Armstrong-64-oz-Once-N-Done-Floor-Cleaner-00330806/100384308

Hello Becky and thank you for your question.

You will need to keep the expansion gap around the periphery but you can use the silicone caulk on the top and bottom of the quarter round as well as around the toilet, shower, pedestal vanity and tub.

As long as you are going over a flat surface, there is nothing further you need to do. Simply peel & stick together. There is also nothing to grout. The seems line up perfectly. I installed this over a pre-existing kitchen floor and you cannot tell there is anything underneath. The only additional tools you will need are a box cutter & a ruler.

I am considering this plank flooring for a room with a skylight. The skylight is sort of frosted, so there aren't full on direct rays of light, it's more muted/diffused. Would that be ok?

Also, I feed my dogs in this room so sometimes they slop their water bowls or have occasional accidents. Does the planking hold up to animals well?
