Inform on how underlayment benefits laminate flooring when it is installed on concrete

Can laminate flooring be installed on concrete? Yes. It can be installed over all surfaces including concrete but they have to be dry, levelled and clean. Concrete is most common surface on which laminate flooring is installed. If concrete floors are newly constructed, you have to wait for concrete to dry. If you are not sure how dry concrete is, you can measure level of humidity in concrete with special device. When concrete dries completely, you can install suitable underlayment. Underlayment for concrete floors which are commonly installed are foam, rubber and cork. All underlayment ensures good stability to laminate on concrete floors and allows natural breathing. That means laminate flooring can expand and contract freely on concrete floors which occurs because of differences in room temperature and humidity. Another benefit of underlayment is levelling small surface imperfections in concrete floors. If there are many imperfections in concrete floors, laminate won't have stability. Laminate planks can start to deform and gaps begin to show. Gaps between planks allow dirt and water to come under them. If that happens repeatedly, laminate can start to swell and deform. There is a possibility mold will start to grow too. How to repair the damage? There is no other way to repair such damage but to replace planks.
