Removing Pergo flooring

Doing a remodel and plan to change the existing Pergo flooring to real wood in a few rooms. Would like to remove the existing Pergo and use it in the bedrooms.
Anything special that needs to be done to remove it so that it can be re-used? It was initially installed by Pergo trained/authorized installers.
TIA, Sandy K.

The older style pergo (7 yrs back) were mostly glued together. If that's the case, it will be difficult. The new style pergo and other floating floors are snapped together, so they should come apart easily.
good luck

Hi Sandy,
You left out the most important part: is it a glued installation or glueless (some people refer to them as snap or click together floors)? That will make all the difference in the world. If it's glueless, you should be able to re-use most of the boards if you take care in uncoupling them.
Here's a link to a flooring message board with lots of pros to answer all kinds of questions: http://www.thefloorpro.com Consumers and DIYers can ask questions without registering, but you are invited to join to take full advantage of the features of the board.
R'gards,
