Installing Swiftlock Plus Floating Laminate wood floor?


Hello , Hubby will be installing this floor this weekend in our dining room. Upon ripping up our carpet we have found the particle board subfloor has areas of wood sticking up, piles of glue and various other issues with not being perfectly flat. How do we go about making sure the floor is flat enough? Also the floor we bought has the foam backing already on it, is there any benefit to putting down any additional foam or will this just cause more problems? Also hubby took all the moldings off around the room and tells me he doesn't need any spacers around the room because there is room under where the molding was removed for the floor to expand, does this sound right to you? Also any additional tips you can give us to assure a good outcome of this product would be appreciated. Thanks!

Particle board subfloor? Is it 1/4 inch particle board over the sub floor? If so just rip it up and replace it so you have a nice smooth surface to work with.

Hubby says it is 5/8" or 3/4" OSB tongue and groove subflooring and it is glued and nailed down. Should we just sand it as smooth as we can get it?
