If your floor wont hold a 75gal tank, then you need to move as your house is likely to fall down any day. A large book case or a couch with three adults weighs around the same. But make sure the tank stand spreads the weight across the full lenght, and try and position the tank next to a load bearing wall on the ground floor. Ian
no the floor should be able to move freely(expansion in summer and contraction in winter) usually you would use a 3/4 by 3/4 shoe moulding around the perimeter that the flooring can move back and forth under.this moulding also holds the flooring down.

Moisture is the big issue. Wood floors over concrete can be either glued down, or floated. A glued down floor is self explanatory.

A good flooring store will come to your house and measure the moisture in the concrete with a moisture meter before selling you any product.
Q:What is the best way to clean laminated flooring?
One of the great advantages that laminate flooring has over other types of flooring is how easy it is to keep clean. Once installed, the after care that laminate flooring requires is very little and extremely simple, and if it is carried out regularly, your floor can be kept looking like new for many years to come. Generally speaking a simply brush over with a soft headed brush or a very slightly damp mop, is all that is needed when cleaning laminate flooring. Follow this with the use of a vacuum cleaner around the edges of the room, and also around any larger pieces of furniture that cannot be moved, and that is all that is generally required.
Q:Industrial Strength Floor Stripper?
You need to rent a electric floor stripper, they are heavy, use a wide variety of pads, and work fast and efficiently. doing this floor by hand is an effort in futility. I purchased a used floor stripper for $75.00 and have used it numerous times. Check with any janitorial supply store and ask a few questions. They will have the liquid floor strippers and pads you require, the aerosol spray for difficult corners, and heavy duty wax available for sale. Use a squeegee to push the dissolved (liquid ) old wax to a central location and suck it up with a shop vac. Clean the shop vac thoroughly after each use. Occasionally you can attend a class at the janitorial supply center when they are held, get on their mailing list. Give the floor 3 coats of new wax with long intervals between each coat. Use a box fan to speed up the drying process.

Q:Why do lot's of place's use wax floor's with all the labor vs artificial floor's.?
Some flooring , especially in retail floors, need a top coat to protect the floor from all the foot traffic. Whats commonly applied isn t a wax but more of a urethane finish or top coating. When buffed it heats up melts and reapply s itself to the floor along with a shiny finish. Most vinyls for residential flooring no long requires a wax but a simple mop on polish. And yes it occasionally needs to be stripped and reapplied. But this to is a simple mop application.. This is for the same reason, its a top coating to protect the vinyl from foot traffic..
