Textile floor coverings do not constitute a suitable sub-layer and must be removed prior to the installation of Laminate or Design flooring.

This would be transferred directly to flooring with floating installation. Hygiene aspects are another consideration, as carpeted floor may rot underneath other floor coverings.
