We bought the house ... removed the old carpeting and want to put down Pergo or other floating flooring. The subfloor has loads of staples sticking up somewhat from where the old underlayment of the carpeting was removed. How do we go from there? Do the staples have to be romoved? Do we have to put down something over the staples? I know a plastic type vapor barrier is called for but is that enough so the staples won't cause a problem? Or is it a problem?
Thanks for your help.
