Installation Instructions:

1.             Lay the underlayment on the floor with the Mohawk logo facing up. The direction of the underlayment should_ be parallel to the direction of the laminate floor.

2.             For the first row of laminate, the underlayment should be placed so that approximately 1 inch (2 cm) overlaps onto all perpendicular walls. Place the following row next to the first on top of the lower moisture barrier flap.

3.             Remove the adhesive strip and fold back the upper flap onto the second row. Make sure that the underlayment fits together tightly (don't leave gaps).

4.             On the last row, place the underlayment 1 inch (2 cm) up against the wall. To join rolls on the short side of the underlayment, use a moisture resistant tape to connect the 2 pieces so that water cannot penetrate the underlayment.
