Question Sub Floor Prep for Floating Wood Floor

I have a concret slab which I have just pulled the carpet up from to put in a floating parqute floor...my problem is that in the conecting kitchen is two layers of linoleum with a full glue. The bottom layer is probably original to the house built in '75, and I don't want to pull it up due to the probability of asbostes. Can I use a floor leveler and feather the hieght gap out 3 to 6 feet or must I level the entire floor to meet the linoleum?

Thanks
Peg

Yes, you can float it out. You may need to go more then the 3-6 ft. though to get it within installation specs.

Being the parquet tiles are smaller, they don't have the tolerances that strip or planks have.

You may be good to go after a little mud work, and feather edging.
