Most likely, if the floor was glued, it was glued with an industrial product such as PL Premium. Many laminate floors are installed as 'floating' floors which does not require glue. Unfortunately if it is difficult to pull up the laminate you may need to remove the sub floor in order to ensure a flat surface to work with when installing the new floor. If the laminate flooring does pull up and leaves indentations and low spots, simply skim coat the floor with a floor leveler product before installing the final floor.

Any type of true laminate floor does not actually attach itself to the floor, so as long as your floor is flat, you can install a laminate floor that locks to itself rather than locking to it;s substrate. there are some more requirements, but the requirements all depend on your particular installation.

Laminate wood flooring is a highly durable, cost-efficient alternative to traditional hardwood floors. Scratch, fade and stain resistant, laminate wood flooring never needs to be replaced or refinished. Laminate flooring is a composite material with several layers that make it strong and attractive. Available in a wide variety of colors, plank widths and wood styles, laminate flooring is versatile and will add style and class to any decor. Easy to install with a simple click joint or locking system, laminate floors don't require glue or nails and can be fully installed over an existing floor in a matter of a weekend.

New laminate flooring & the locking system needs to settle. Give it 1 - 2 weeks.
