Help to Remove a Laminate Floor

Wow! Lots of information to install a floor, but I did not see anything to remove a laminate floor. I am having a new laminate floor installed and need to remove the one I have now. What is the best way to approach this task?

if there's quarter-round trim, remove that. if it's under the baseboards, remove those. then just un-click each plank & remove. unless they were glued together, it shouldn't be difficult at all.

Annett, thanks for your input. I have removed the quarter round and the thresholds, but it is not coming out that easily. When the floor was installed, the installers told me that they did not glue the floor. The few planks that I have been able to pry out do not appear to have glue on them, but they are really stuck together. Could this be due to wear? The floor has been down for 10 years. Nothing is ever as easy as it seems. :-)

A pry bar would be helpful. This along with a little elbow grease should get the floor up.
